Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month began with the 11th Breast Cancer Care Fashion Show which took place at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel. The 23 models featured (21 women & 2 men) have all experienced breast cancer and are at varying stages of recovery.

Dressed in the latest styles with their hair and make up beautifully prepared, the models sashayed down the catwalk to show that there is a future beyond cancer and you can still look good and feel great.

Fashion is an industry which has high public appeal and press coverage so it is a great way to raise awareness to a well deserving charity. This year the special catwalk show raised an amazing £517,000, while an additional £400,000 was raised by QVC shopping channel through online sales during the live airing on their TV channel.

The black tie event was presented by Lisa Snowdon and David Walliams, both of whom looked amazing in their formal evening attire. If you have a black tie event to attend in the near future ou can find suitable plus size eveningwear at
