IDC Fashion for a Cause

Last Sunday I attended a fashion event organized by the student unoin of  IDC, a college which I attend in Herziliya, Israel. This event was called Fashion IDC. The event was covered by the media quite nicely especially since it was a charity fundraising event where all the money actually went to an organization called Hayim Association which helps children who have cancer in Israel. A lot of effort was put into this event and was supposedly known to be IDC’s most extravagant events. The Fashion show featured the top Israeli fashion designers’ collections modeled by students from the IDC and some professional models as well. The event costed 50 NIS for the students, 75 NIS for everyone else that are not students and if you wanted to have a seat by the runway there’s a ticket for 200NIS. 

The event included an open-bar and booths of food which were served like tapas. 
 
Overall the event seemed like quite a sucess however, actually half of the people who paid to get in to the event were unable to see the fashion show because the place was too small to hold such crowd. The show wasn’t broadcasted on a big screen outside due to technical issues so during the fashion show plenty of people were outside, some stayed to mingle and some left because there simply wasn’t really what to do at that point. 
 
As a fashion blogger, I wasn’t able to get in to see the show which was a great disappointment since it looks (from photos) like it was a great show. I was truly upset to miss it especially since I really looked forward to it. Other than that, the so called “open-bar” ran out of alcohol very early during the evening and it didn’t have the abilities to actually serve such big crowd which led to people pushing and being rude. However, the food in the event were very impressive, it felt like eating at a nice tapas restaurant. I really enjoyed the food and the vibe of the people in the event. 
 
Following the fashion show more people left the event and there was a party going on inside the building where the fashion show took place. The DJ was not particularly amazing either but it kept people going on until quite late during the night. 
 

Overall looking at the event as a whole it seems to appear to be one of the grandest events of IDC yet the media fails to show that not all was so perfect actually. The impact of the event was obviously the most important here since the money goes to helping Children with Cancer but whether all the people who attended the event enjoyed that’s another thing already. I hope that next year’s Fashion IDC event will be better organized so that all people who paid get to enjoy the whole event as a whole. I believe that if it’s organized properly next year it would really be one of the top events IDC’s student union organizes.
