Last night I was lucky enough to attend one of the coolest fashion shows I’ve ever been to.
And I don’t say that lightly!
The music boomed, lights flashed, and one after another the most diverse bunch of models you’ve ever laid eyes on stalked their way down the runway.
I wanted to share as much as possible with you, so went a little snap happy!
It all kicked off with a speech about what we’d all gathered together for; charity.
Ebola relief to be exact.
It focused around the fact that the mainstream media has all but forgotten about the disease sweeping its way through African nations.
The media frenzy was all based on the fear of it “coming over here” and what would happen if we contracted the dreaded bug?
And then people in America did. And they got better.
Modern medicine means that Ebola is not a death sentence.
If you live in the west.
A lack of resources, basic medicines, hospital space and doctors means that 80% of those who contract the disease in Africa will die.
So the idea behind the show was not only to raise money (through one hell’uvan auction!) but also to raise awareness and remind us all that this is still a serious problem.
If you want to read more about the campaign or donate whatever you can spare… check out the website.
But for now, the show must go on!
Britain’s great and good slipped on their stilettos and marched their way down the printed carpet.
There were appearances from Jourdan Dunn, Georgia May Jagger, the Duchess of York, Vivienne Westwood, Daisy Lowe, Rupert Everett, Katie Price, Alesha Dixon, Sarah-Jane Crawford, Pixie Lott, Laura Whitmore, Bruno Tonioli, Caroline Flack, Nicola Roberts, Katie Piper, Melissa Odabash, Dynamo, dolled up to the nines in Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Azzedine Alaia, Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney, Balmain, Marchesa, Versace and so much more.
Sit back, have a scroll and see who you recognise!
All eyes on Naomi!
You’ll never guess who this ^ is!
I put in a few bids for this dress ^ at auction. It’s an Alexander McQueen and I almost had it… but the exceptionally impressive Sotherby’s auctioneer pushed it higher than I could go.
…but so far.
Vivianne Westwood stole. the. show.
The show ended to rapturous applause as the models took their final strut through the room.
The auction started and people were a little shy.
But the auctioneer soon changed all that!
He was a ball of energy, laughing, joking, sprinting. Pushing prices high and higher, they must have raised a small fortune.
We finished the night being serenaded by Ella Eyre.
While some stayed to party late into the night, I headed out into the rain and off to supper!
I arrived late and found my date tapping his toes, but he soon forgave me when he saw… the dress.
A bargainous little number from you’ll-never-guess-where!
