High heels but low sales at OFW

first_imgInformation leaked to Cherwell last week suggests that Oxford Fashion Week is struggling to sell tickets for its most expensive shows. Some ticket reps are also complaining that the perks offered to them are not enough for the work they put in.The annual fashion week kicks off this Sunday but according to an e-mail sent to ticket reps two weeks ago, the company had sold just seventeen tickets for the £35 “Concept Show” and only six tickets for their £55 Malmaison Lingerie Show. The considerably cheaper £6 Style Show had reportedly sold over 125 tickets.This year’s Fashion Week has recently announced the addition of two Lady Gaga costumes, which will feature in the Couture Show as well as the return of Fashion journalist Dolly Jones, editor of VOGUE.COM, who will be joining the Oxford Fashion Week forum on Monday. However, students are complaining that the week’s events are unrealistically expensive even with these new inclusions.OFW found it difficult to sell tickets for their pricier events last year in the run up to the week. The business made an overall financial loss for that year’s event.Although the company declined to comment on current sales figures, Carl Anglim, CEO of OFW, defended the company’s decision to keep prices high. He promised that this year’s Fashion Show will “be far and away the most luxurious evening of the week at Oxford’s dramatic converted prison”.For its second year, OFW decided to recruit College Representatives to raise awareness of the week and further increase ticket sales. Mr Anglim said, “The primary role of College Reps is to provide a point of information in each college and to bring OFW closer to students. We are delighted to have so many who have volunteered to help”.However, some ticket reps blame the lack of perks offered by the company for poor ticket sales.One representative for the week told Cherwell that she had not sold any tickets. “I can’t really be bothered. It’s all very overpriced and there aren’t many incentives. If you sell over £100 worth of tickets you get a free ticket to the Style show, which is hardly worth pushing sales for considering that it is by far the cheapest event”.Another student, who wished to remain anonymous, dropped out of selling tickets. She said, “There’s some free stuff for ticket reps but only if you sell enough tickets. It’s a tad exploitative. Plus I think everything is way too expensive so I didn’t feel comfortable selling people tickets”.The criticisms follow other difficulties in what has been a difficult second year for Oxford’s biggest fashion event. Earlier in the year, the company had to scale down the Week from six events to five. The sixth event, a Couture show, was allegedly cancelled following “a big row about budgets and the way OFW was presenting itself,” according to one insider.However, Mr Anglim has rejected these claims, saying for the Couture Show “the elements were not in place at the right time for the scale of event we wanted.”last_img read more

St. Joseph County Police won’t enforce county’s face mask, hand sanitizer orders

Our department’s legal interpretation regarding the enforcement of this order is that it would be enforced just as any other order of the County Health Department. This order is no different from those issued regularly regarding food service/restaurants, tattoo parlors, or sewer/septic requirements the health officer might issue. This process is typically handled internally by the health department via a complaint and sending of an abatement letter, without any police involvement. Sheriff Redman does not anticipate any deviation from this usual process such that would require the involvement of police. Lastly, we want to point out that the health department’s order does not state that masks must be worn in public at all times. The order specifically states that when physical distancing of at least six feet cannot be maintained, then face coverings shall be worn when in public. This is also the recommended practice of Governor Holcomb’s five-stage plan released Friday and recommended by the CDC.

Thankfully none of them received life threatening injuries and I would like to take this opportunity to wish them a speedy recovery.

Navy weekend features Compton rally, flyover

first_imgWith one home football game left on the 2013 schedule, director of game day operations Mike Seamon said Saturday’s Navy game weekend went “incredibly well,” despite the chaos from an influx of visitors to campus. “The Notre Dame-Navy relationship is certainly one of the most special relationships in all of college football, and we think this past weekend was a testament to that,” Seamon said. “Whenever we play Navy at home, we have a very high number of guests visit campus. We see a large number of Notre Dame fans who have a very sincere respect and high level of admiration for the Naval Academy, so they always mark this weekend to visit campus.” Seamon said more than 100,000 people came to campus for the weekend, and one of the highlights was the Blue Angels flyover for the first time this year. “We’ve been working hard with our ROTC programs and the military over the course of the past several months to try to get a flyover for one of our home games,” he said. “The sequester presented a unique challenge to [that]. Thankfully, the Blue Angels were open to coming to the Notre Dame-Navy game to celebrate our special relationship with a flyover. “Two of the six jets were piloted by both a Naval Academy graduate and a Notre Dame graduate. We were grateful that the weather cleared just in time for the flyover and the game.” Friday’s pep rally was the first ever to be held in the Compton Family Ice Arena, Seamon said, and drew a crowd of about 7,000 people. “We decided to take advantage of the hockey team being on the road last weekend and open up the facility to our fans and guests, as many of them had never had the opportunity to visit the new facility,” he said. “We were able to honor and recognize the Blue Angels as part of the rally, [and] we received an overwhelmingly positive response to holding the rally in Compton, as everyone thought it was a loud environment.” The stadium tunnel tour Friday saw a season-high total as well, with 5,190 participants, Seamon said. The Friday luncheon had 1,000 attendees. Phil Johnson, director of Notre Dame Security Police, said despite the early rain, the day turned out well from his group’s standpoint. “Traffic ran smoothly, and there were no crashes,” Johnson said. “Police made two custodial arrests Saturday. One man was arrested for shoplifting and possession of marijuana, the other for public intoxication.” Johnson said police also issued citations for underage drinking to two local young people who were loitering in campus parking lots during the game. Post-game traffic was more normal than traffic at the previous weekend’s USC game, Seamon said. “Overall, it was another special weekend celebrating the long-standing Notre Dame-Navy relationship,” he said.
