#CATWALK4CHANGE by Models of Diversity

Models of Diversity-Catwalk4Change

On September 6, 2013 I attended my very first fashion show, which was organised by Models of Diversity at The Water Lily in East London. Angel Sinclair, founder of Models of Diversity started this campaign called #CATWALK4CHANGE – a charity fashion show aimed at bringing about a change in the outlook in the fashion and modelling industry. The show was hosted by British actress Charlotte Avery and the make-up was done by Illamasqua. All guests were greeted in the lobby by “Rebecca Goodyear PR” team and a spot of opera, which added an air of sophistication to the already high profile charity event. Proceeds from ticket sales went to MacMillan and MIND.

The #CATWALK4CHANGE event consisted of two shows; one which was styled around the 50s theme with mature models who walked the show and the second was a collaboration with Pret-a-Reporter blogger Edita Lozovska, aimed at highlighting the lack of racial diversity on the runway with focus on designers and bloggers from varied social, cultural and religious backgrounds.

There were models of all ages, shapes and sizes from various parts of the world, which included mature models as well as a few of UK’s fashion bloggers. Some of the bloggers who took to the runway were AJ Taylor, Mademoiselle Lala, Eighteen Forever, Stefanie McLeod Reid, Karro, RuthHarrisonRoberts, Julie, Jane Britton and ElegantlyFashionable.

I had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed the show, the creative designs, and the gorgeous models who looked fabulous in those creations. And not forgetting, raising funds for two important causes.

I’m looking forward to next year’s event and would love to be a part of it.

    I’m so upset I missed it! It looked like it was as successful as I thought it would be. I’ll be there next year for sure!
