Catwalk4change was a fashion show with difference. It showcased mature models and UK bloggers of different height, shape and ethnicity to promote multiculturalism, ethnic diversity, and positive image. The event took place at Water Lilly on 6th September, last year. All funds raised from ticket sales were donated to mental health charity MIND and cancer
I was invited to participate in the blogger fashion show. When I got the invite I was thrilled that I would represent petite women and contribute to the charity at the same time. On the day Guest enjoyed upbeat fashion show hosted by British Actress, Charlotte Avery, paired by pop legend Stacey Jackson. The event was supported by some sought after UK celebrities such as Alex Reid, Charlie Sims, Denise Walsh, Layla Anna-Lee,Lynda Bellingham, Jane Goldman and Sian Lloyd.The show also caught special attention of CEO of the British Fashion Council, Caroline Rush, who was fully supportive of the cause and was excited to see the impact it made and the issues it raised.
I was extremely pleased by the support and turnout on the day. I was showcasing African prints from two designers. The interesting part of the blogger show was each of us were wearing clothes from different ethnic backgrounds. The Africa girls were wearing Indian clothes, Asian girls were wearing western outfits. It was interesting showcase of fashion from different countries and ethnicity.
The lovely Georgina from Forks and Brushes and the designer I was wearing ( Eldimaa Fashion) took a video clipping of me walking the runway. Enjoy the video below and do let me know your thoughts.
