This autumn 44 inspiring men and women, who have all been affected by breast cancer, will conquer the catwalk to celebrate life after a diagnosis as part of Breast Cancer Care’s annual fashion shows.
With fashion shows in London and Glasgow these star-studded occasions are a diary must for fashion fans, a great opportunity to treat someone special or just a good excuse for a wonderful night out! Guests will enjoy a champagne reception, a gourmet dinner and a glittering catwalk show as well a whole host of entertainment – so don’t forget to pack your dancing shoes! And the best bit? These incredible events will raise vital funds to help Breast Cancer Care continue to support the 50,000 people diagnosed with breast cancer each year.
The London models will be styled by fashion correspondent, Hilary Alexander, alongside London Fashion Week coordinator, Lesley Goring. They will model a fabulous range of designer clothing from fashion’s elite including Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood, as well as high street outfits. Their hair will be transformed by Sassoon Salons and make up applied by Estée Lauder.
Breast cancer is now the most common cancer amongst women in the UK. Last year’s fashion shows raised half a million pounds to enable Breast Cancer Care to provide expert information and professional support and advice when it’s needed most.
The London show has an afternoon and an evening show.
