Categories: Care, Featured, and People & Places.

Former model and actress Lady Shakira Caine, lawyer Nancy Dell’Olio and founder of Pineapple Dance Studios Debbie Moore OBE were among the high profile guests at an exclusive fundraising fashion event in support of Hospice UK.

More than 80 guests attended the Fashion Lunch held at Mosimann’s Club, one of the most prestigious private dining clubs in the world, located in the heart of Belgravia in central London.

They enjoyed a drinks reception and lunch whilst admiring a string of show-stopping creations from leading designers Tomasz Starzewski, Daniel Blake, Karl Donoghue and Rachel Trevor-Morgan.

One of Britain’s leading fashion designers, Tomasz Starzewski has a loyal following on both sides of the Atlantic and dresses many members of the British and European royal families and heads of state, as well as stars from stage and screen. He first came to attention when the late Princess of Wales, Baroness Thatcher, Duchess of Cornwall, Countess Wessex and Sarah Duchess of York wore his designs.

Karl Donoghue founded his eponymous luxury fashion label in 2000. His numerous celebrity clients include Kate Moss, Julian Moore and Kylie Minogue.

Other guests attending the glamorous Fashion Lunch included Lady Howard, the wife of former Conservative leader and Minnie Churchill, granddaughter-in-law of Sir Winston Churchill.

The event was organised by Hospice UK and Merrill Powell, Chair of the London Fundraising Committee.

Hospice UK raised more than £16,000 from the event for its work supporting more than 200 hospices across the UK.

Catherine Bosworth, Director of Income Generation at Hospice UK said:

“Our Fashion Lunch was a great success and helped raise crucial funds for the care provided by hospices across the UK to children and adults with terminal and life-limiting conditions.

“We were thrilled to have such renowned designers featuring their work at our Fashion Lunch. Our guests certainly showed their passion for fashion, admiring the many eye-catching designs on display while enjoying a relaxing lunch.”
