More than 70 guests attended the glamorous event, which was held at the iconic Mosimann’s private dining club in Belgravia, and raised more than £14,000.
Guests enjoyed a drinks reception and lunch while admiring the work of Dame Zandra Rhodes, as well as fellow designers Tomasz Starzewski, Louise Kennedy and Dillon Wallwork. Following the show, attendees were able to buy directly from the designers, with 10% of the sales going to Hospice UK.
Celebrities and supporters including Lady Shakira Caine, Lady Sandra Howard and Lady Susi Ashcroft were among the guests at the glamorous event.
A figurehead in British fashion for five decades, Dame Zandra Rhodes has collaborated with iconic brands such as Valentino, Topshop, Free People and IKEA, while Tomasz Starzewski has designed garments worn by the late Princess of Wales and Baroness Thatcher. Louise Kennedy is a member of the British Fashion Council and designer to members of the Royal Family and Dillon Wallwork has been a staple of the high fashion scene for more than 30 years.
