Huges queues were spotted outside August House on Friday, September 1 as stylish revellers hoped to grab a glimpse of new sustainable designs and trends.
The event was hosted by Clique, a non-profit collective which aims to promote diversity and eco friendly fashion.
The group debuted their first fashion show this weekend which gathered huge buzz online and even sold out twice.
Guests dressed to impress as hundreds poured into the venue with one person even wearing their actual wedding dress while others got experimental.
The Glasgow Times caught up with some fashion forward folks who were eager to watch the show and explain their own style.
