It was a glittering evening for ‘Splendours of the Commonwealth’. The pre-launch event of London Fashion Week at the gorgeous May Fair Hotel.
In aid of The Commonwealth Countries League Education Fund (CCLEF) the glamour was not just on the catwalk - with many guests displaying a stunning array of Commonwealth national costumes.
After canapés and Champagne we were piped to our seats for the show itself.
The catwalk featured fabulous designs from hugely talented young Commonwealth designers. Every aspect of the show was created and choreographed by young women who donated their time and skills to support the charity.
We heard from some recipients about the extraordinary difference education has made to their lives and that of their families and communities. CCLEF has sponsored thousands of girls so far and is currently helping over 400 bright young women to complete their secondary education. To find out more visit: http://www.cclef.org
