The 1193.6 mile long Catwalk

London Fashion week goes the extra mile this season – more like the extra 1193.6 miles. House of Fraser hosted the ‘Worlds longest catwalk’ relay from Lands End to John O’Groats, The relay taking over 382 hours walked as if on a catwalk by professional models, volunteers and House of Fraser staff through the rocky paths and English weather. The models walked in the latest trends and the highest heels to raise money for the London Fashion Week registered BFC Princess of Wales charitable Trust. They were hoping to raise a fantastic £20,000 and as the relay finished early this morning the exact about is still to be verified.

London Fashion Week Through The Eyes Of Frances Phillips

Last night was another great night; Kele De Roc and Alan Endfield were the hosts of a Fashion/Music event to help raise money and awareness for The British Lung Foundation. It was a ticket only event with all the profits going to the charity. We arrived at nine o’clock welcomed by Fashion TV and OK Magazine. The party was held at Studio Valbonne which was the perfect venue for such an event, the deco was fabulous. Spectacular chandeliers were cased in translucent cubes hung from the high ceilings and the Grand antique mirrors were exquisite against the Edwardian inspired gold wallpaper. The whole club was magnificent which mirrored the event. Beautiful clothes on beautiful people strolled down the catwalk followed by an auction of some of the items – of which the money went to charity. The Event was organised flawlessly and the staff and organisers were very friendly and attentive. The evening was definitely a hit as people came from round the world to help support The Lung Foundation. To top the night off- as we left the club there was a bike with a carriage attached ready to take us where ever we wanted to go. I love London.
