The event was staged by the Social Records DJ Students Society and the non-profit enterprise My Big Sister’s Wardrobe – a second hand clothes business launched by friends Kia, Kristy and Issy.

They raised £150 for women’s charity FWT, which is based in Kia’s home city of Coventry.

FWT offers a place for all women to access education, training, healthcare and employment.

Co-founder of Social Records Verity Hobbs said: “It’s about arranging a space for those who are interested in buying exclusive vintage clothes for low prices, listening to music, making new friends and giving back to the ones who need help.”

Since starting their business, the company founders havedecided to keep all their events as cheap as possible, charging no admission fee.
