Pink Shoe Club members were thrilled to be invited to launch London Fashion Week at the MayFair Hotel with Splendours of the Commonwealth Fashion Show in aid of the Commonwealth Countries League Education Fund.
The event was brilliantly organized by Judith Fisher and Sue Lawton and the clothes were stunning!.
PSC Patron Tessa Sanderson White CBE was guest of honour along with Baroness Boothroyd, Ade Adepitan and Baroness Flather amongst others.
The evening started with a wow when we received a rousing traditional Maori welcome!
Fashion was from hugely talented young Commonwealth designers Shipra Malhotra, Ekta Solanki, Duchess, Kitty Ferriera, Tina Lobondi, Sika, Sunita Mukhi and the grande finale from Jenny Packham.
All shown with great panache by an array of models from throughout the Commonwealth and compered by Russel Amerasekera.
The evening was a huge success with a party atmosphere and super service from the hotel team.
As we enjoyed the Champagne guests perused the silent auction with a range of art works contributed by many of the schools in the programme.
We heard first hand just how important is the work of CCLEF. It sponsors bright girls to give them equal opportunities for secondary education in their own countries. So far over 3000 girls, have been helped and currently 397 girls across 25 Commonwealth countries are being supported.
