London Fashion Week may be over, but the final event on the fashionistas calendar took place on Monday 13 March, with the annual ‘Trust in Fashion’ event at The Savoy, London. The prestigious fashion show with a conscience raised £80,000 for Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.
Among the 280 guests were a bevy of celebrities including Candice Brown, the winner of the 2016 series of The Great British Bake Off, Rainbow Trust Ambassador Hugo Taylor, Nell McAndrew and Liz Earle who all attended to lend their support and raise awareness of the charity’s work with families with a life threatened or terminally ill child.
This event showcased the Spring / Summer 2017 collection from Emilia Wickstead, the renowned fashion designer known for dressing the Duchess of Cambridge with her “classic with a twist” designs as well as London designer Anna Mason and the bespoke diamond jewellery Boodles. Guests enjoyed the Savoy’s elegant lunch, with exclusive fashion shows and had an opportunity to shop in a pop-up boutique.
Emma Haines, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Rainbow Trust said:
“Today has raised £80,000 which will make a huge difference to our work at Rainbow Trust supporting families with a life threatened or terminally ill child. The generosity of the guests attending was astounding and we hope that everyone who attended enjoyed the event as much as we did.”
