Trent Fashion Society (TFS) is in every sense a true mini-revolution in fashion, geared towards inclusivity and diversity all while raising funds for charity.

A student group with members who are passionate about “charity, change, fashion, and fun”, TFS is out to redefine the rules of fashion.

TFS recognizes that diversity in fashion and beauty is not just about race and size; it is about the entire spectrum of real life differences including shape, gender, sexuality, age, ethnicity and ability.

The group was initially formed in 2010 to bring together artistic students as a way to help nurture their creative flair through promotion of local fashion boutiques. Since then TFS has grown significantly not only in terms of its goals as a group, but also with regards to raising funds for charity, and promotion of local small business and artists.

This year, more than ever, TFS is here to bring you plethora of platforms to make your fashion experience at Trent monumental!

First on the agenda is Trent’s Next Top [Role] Model – a unique program to recognize exemplary style. It will honour a Trent University student with good academic standing who demonstrate themselves as a positive and progressive role model within the community.

A student will commit to promoting self-love and a healthy body image, embrace professionalism and positive ethics, but not without style, fashion and fun.

Another equally engaging and exciting introduction is the publication of the very first TFS annual magazine in March 2017.

The circulation which is to be made available locally will not only serve as a fashion bible for the Peterborough community, but also immortalize the experiences of being a part of the fashion society here by way of collectible glossy pages.

Above all, the magazine will be a tangible piece of fashion that maintains the honour of the TFS members, volunteers, sponsors, and its relentless contribution to make a difference for the YES Shelter for Youth and Families, as well as the community at large. The published magazine will be abundantly available throughout local Peterborough businesses with proceeds supporting the shelter.

YES Shelter for Youth and Families is a social services organization in Peterborough that “helps youth and families in Peterborough to lead full and positive lives by providing shelter, education and transitional supports.”
TFS strives to contribute to the Peterborough community with panache and pride, and has positively touched many lives and endeavors to enchant even more souls.

We believe that, together, we will succeed in moving forward to redefine the rules of fashion and stand proud as we raise funds for charity while doing so.

There are no rules to beauty, fashion or positive evolution; you, me and we are all ‘it’. So come be a part of TFS because you already are!
