Let’s take a #Fringie

This year at the Edinburgh Fringe we have seen the rise of the fringie…



With this in mine we are CALLING TO YOU TO SEND US YOU FRINGIES! @CODIfringe #codi15 

Why? One of our shows in the programme is called “Fashion and the selfie” where Mal Burkinshaw Director of Fashion at the Edinburgh College of Art explores, with you the audience, the role that fashion plays in stereotyping ideals of beauty and the rise of the me me me selfie culture

When are we ever good enough?

Help craft the show- send us your fringies!

Four down twenty to go!

We have firmly set up shop now at The Stand in the Square  in our lovely yurt.
