Celebrity names such as actress and Hop, Skip and Jump President Elizabeth Hurley, singer Van Morrisson, actress Lisa Maxwell, cricketer Shane Warne, designer Selina Blow and Embarrassing Bodies’ Dawn Harper are just some of the high profile attendees that headed down the red carpet of the glamorous event and watched a high fashion runway show.
Speaking ahead of the event Elizabeth Hurley, who is attending in her capacity of President of Hop, Skip and Jump, said: “The Cheltenham Fashion Week One Night Only event is being held in aid of Hop, Skip and Jump. This is a charity that gives a unique and vital service to the many families who have children with additional needs so it is absolutely right that we should be together gathering support for them during this special week for Cheltenham. Until I met up with Hop, Skip and Jump I had not realised the enormous need for a place which gives flexible day respite to the many families who have children and young adults with additional needs. The change in people’s lives through this unique provision is truly remarkable.”
On arrival at the luxury boutique hotel guests were greeted with a Champagne reception, followed by a sumptuous three course supper and wine. Guests also received a VIP goodie bag filled with lavish treats.
The event was a complete sell-out. The A-list event treated guests to an evening of fine dining, music and glamorous fashion showcasing new and established couture designers from all over the UK. Winning pieces from the earlier Student Shows also featured alongside the Couture Show.
Sponsors of the evening included Tattinger and Cowley Manor.
Cheltenham Fashion Week draws to a close later today.
