Interested in volunteering, fashion and innovation? Want to practice your skills to help a worthy cause? Or just want to be part of something bigger? Come and join our creative team of students as we plan an exciting year of events and collaborations.
The Closet is a student led clothing volunteer group based in the UoM Student’s Union. The team encompasses student creativity by aiming to create a space where students can showcase their work and meet new people, whilst helping to raise awareness and funds for the local mental health charity, Manchester Mind.
Established in 2015, The Closet aim's to promote student creativity and entrepreneurship showcasing anything from artwork to film and fashion. We strive to create a place for people to showcase their work and promote student action whilst working towards helping a local charity.
At The Closet we aim to help a worthy cause in the most fun and inclusive way possible. After our years of success raising money and awareness for the charity through various sample sales like Nasty gal & Misguided, we can only hope for even more success for the year going ahead! Taking from a mixture of Vintage and donated clothing, we aim to encompass a mission of promoting sustainable fashion alongside awareness of mental health issues and the student ability to implement change, all truly important causes in today's society, and at the heart of The Closet's ethos.
