Description of the tool

In the pre departure welcome letter participants are informed about the International Fashion Show and asked to bring 3 important things for the evening:
- a traditional or very popular hat or headwear (or clothing).
- a short description and cultural history of the hat.
- a short piece of traditional or very popular music.
Participants are asked to provide the team with music and then they hear their piece of music they take to the stage in fashion show style and are asked to give a short description and history of the hat. Observing participants are then asked to score the hat (fashion) using coloured cards with 1, 2 and 3 on it. A country by country score sheet is placed in a good position and a member of the team adds all the scores.


  • Ensure participants get the chance to share the intercultural element and history of hat.
    With larger groups ensure time is managed well or it could be a late night.
