A star-studded fashion show hosted by Steve Vyse, Gaia Wise and the Pink Ribbon Foundation, sponsored by Glasses Direct, Vanity Studios and Skin By Poppy.
Newly appointed Ambassador of the Pink Ribbon Foundation, Gaia Wise and best friend/stylist, Steve Vyse are supporting the charity with the launch of a new charity t-shirt to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March, an annual campaign which focuses on the women’s rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, violence and abuse against women.
Gaia, daughter of Emma Thompson and Greg Wise felt this was a cause close to her heart having sadly lost her Auntie to cancer.
Designed under the Mad Love London Label created by Steve and Gaia, the t-shirt will be available to purchase via the charity’s official store www.pinkribbonfoundationstore.com from 21 February 2023, with all profits supporting those affected by breast cancer.
To launch the campaign, Gaia, Steve and the Pink Ribbon Foundation hosted a fashion show on the last day of London Fashion Week, the same day that the tee is available to buy online. The exclusive show which featured many famous faces and supporters of the Foundation, took place at Dartmouth House in London’s Mayfair, a stunning Georgian House with many original features.
As well as the many famous faces strutting their stuff on the catwalk, a whole host of guests from the world of fashion, TV and music also attended on the day to show their support. Specially invited guests enjoyed a glass of prosecco in the sumptuous surroundings of The Churchill Room whilst listening to classical pianist Melissa Harrison, and violinist Oriana Curls, before taking their seats to watch the unique charity catwalk show.
