Mount Saint Michael, Rosscarbery Fashion Formula TY Project






TY students from Mount Saint Michael, Rosscarbery, Co. Cork have initiated a charity based project called Fashion Formula.

The student project was set up with three concepts in mind;

1 . To run a successful fashion show.

We ran our Annual transition year fashion show and reached our aim of raising €2,000 each for Co-Action and Marymount Hospice.

2. To produce a professional DVD.

This DVD follows our fashion show from the concept stage to the day, and is a "toolkit for Kindness". It will be of great benefit to other schools or organisations who want to fundraise money for charity too.

This DVD will be sold in selected Centra stores nationwide from the 4th April at €10 and also on the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind online shop. All proceeds raised from this DVD go to The Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.

3. The idea

Our idea is to raise €100,000 for charities nationwide. We believe that through synergy we plan to raise €100,000 by getting schools and organisations to hold fashion shows for local charities.

The students run an annual TY fashion show and this years event held on the 14th of February in the Celtic Ross Hotel, Rosscarbery with the theme "It's a wonderful Life". Through admittance and raffle ticket sales the students reached their goal of raising €2,000 each for our local charities of choice, Co-Action and Marymount Hospice.

Fashion Formula won the West Cork Enterprise competition and will be travelling to Dublin on the 14th of April to the All Ireland competition.
