"A Dream Within..." is a charity event for Crohn's and Colitis UK (more info here) and is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe.

Why Crohn's and Colitis UK? Crohn's Disease is a treatable illness, but not curable, also the cause is still unknown. Many people have never even heard of this illness, but with time the symptoms and side effects of Crohn's will get worse (anaemia, short bowel syndrome, malnutrition, DVT... etc the list is going on and on), and it sometimes gets life threatening.
With the growing number of patients diagnosed each year it is vital that the research towards this illness is well funded, that soon they will finally find a cure so future patients will not have to face the huge impact of Crohn's on their lives.

Why Poe? I just simply find E. A. Poe very inspiring. There is no other like him. :) Each designer was assigned to a different verse/part of one of Poe's poems and was asked to interpret it into a creation, a visual composition of theirs.

•To accompany the outfit on the left:
 Bodza Blackadder:
There pass'd, as a shroud,
A fleecy cloud,
And I turned away to thee,
Proud Evening Star,
In thy glory afar,
And dearer thy beam shall be;
For joy to my heart
Is the proud part
Thou bearest in Heaven at night,
And more I admire
Thy distant fire,
Than that colder, lowly light.

•To accompany the outfit on the right:
Nevery Lorakeet:
Now Doubt — now Pain
Come never again,
For her soul gives me sigh for sigh,
And all day long
Shines, bright and strong,
Astarté within the sky,
While ever to her dear Eulalie upturns her matron eye —
While ever to her young Eulalie upturns her violet eye.

50% of the income from each design will go to Crohn's and Colitis UK, but there will also be donation boxes dotted around.

The event will start with a little fashion show on 9th of November 1PM SLT and will run for a whole week at Azure Island (Finesmith)
