Concrete Catwalk is run by an amazing group of people who have dedicated so much of their time to creating a platform for St Andrews fashion enthusiasts to showcase their looks and keep up to date on trends and the fashion industry. Each person working on Concrete Catwalk adds their own unique sense vibe to the way they dress. I spoke to Director Emma Glennon to find out more about her personal style and opinions on fashion in the modern world.

Do you feel like your style is an accurate representation of your personality?
I feel like it is to the best of my ability, but there are definitely things I would buy if I had the money that would make it a more accurate reflection.
Some people might say that fashion and clothing is trivial given all that is going on in the world. Why do feel that fashion is still important to talk about?
Sometimes we need to focus on the trivial to take the edge off of the more serious facets of life. It might be self-indulgent, but fashion is, in my opinion, the best form of self expression. Wearing clothes that I love helps me feel more myself. Putting outfits together brings me a lot of joy, so style is not something I’ll stop talking about anytime soon.
