|Fashion for the Brave|
The Fashion for the Brave black tie charity gala at The Dorchester on Friday 8th November promises to be a night to remember, with Julien MacDonald showing his support for the injured soldiers of the Household Cavalry by designing an exquisite bespoke dress exclusively for the event. The dress, referencing the Union Jack, will be unveiled and modelled by Abbey Clancy on the steps of The Dorchester on Friday afternoon.
Abbey will also be wearing the signature piece in the catwalk show element of Fashion for the Brave - leading the finale in the bespoke dress and a beautiful red lace glove from Sheeva.
Fashion legend Hilary Alexander OBE has created an extraordinary show for the black tie event, featuring the Best of British fashion, and says of the event, “Fashion for the Brave is the absolute apogee of British fashion all in one place, at one time, one dazzling evening in aid of the Household Cavalry and Soldiering On - the 2013 show is going to be sensational!"
