Fashion Bites Back!

This year JCI Leeds is continuing to support the United Nation Foundation’s Nothing But Nets malaria campaign.

On Saturday the 8th of October JCI Leeds will host Fashion Bites Back, a charity fashion show that will raise awareness and funs to help eradicate malaria by sending bet nets to Africa. We have a fantastic community team working on this project and I thought I would update you on some of our progress and successes so far………

Last Saturday the community team interviewed a number of fashion designers who are interested in showcasing their designs at the show. We were all blown away by their talent and creativity and can’t wait to see the designs on the catwalk. The designers will be showcasing a collection of garments that will be modelled with African style make-up and they will also be creating a netted garment, which will fit perfectly with the theme of the event.

We will be hosting a model casting day on the 30th of June. If you are interested in modelling at Fashion Bites Back or you would like more details about this, please contact Janita at, our model casting manager.

We will also be holding a raffle on the night and we have already secured some amazing prizes, including a little black dress donated by French Connection UK, and ESPA body massage courtesy of the Academy Spa in Harrogate and £100 of vouchers to spend in NEXT. Stay tuned for more exciting prizes to follow.

Our website will be going live shortly and if you would like to register your interest please visit

I will look forward to writing again soon with more of our community news.
