A couple of months ago a friend of mine wrote me an email and asked if I would like to be involved in a Charity event called Style 4 School, without hesitating I said yes, yes, yes…..I was especially intrigued as Room To Read, was the charity involved. They raise money to educate young girls all over the world, helping women get more of what they want.
The task at Hand….was to mentor Hong Kong International school 12th grader Orange Chan while she put together a collection of 5 dresses. What a ride its been, from long hours of looking at mood boards, tech drawings and fabric picking the collection is finally ready and the event lined up for this Friday.
The Quintessentially Foundation’s inaugural Hong Kong fundraiser will take place on Friday 13th November 2009, when it presents ‘Style 4 Schools’ - THE fashion event with a difference.
…..W Hotel from 7pm to indulge in a night of fashion, frivolity and fundraising.
It is often said that the perfect wardrobe is based around one classic item - the Little Black Dress. Keeping this in mind, this very special fashion fundraiser will include a fashion show of iconic pieces donated by renowned international designers Chloé, John Rocha, Salvatore Ferragamo, DVF and Matthew Williamson, to name but a few. If you like what you see, there will be an opportunity to bid for the dresses in an auction with all proceeds benefitting Room To Read, the charity which endeavors to improve the lives of children through opportunities that only education can provide.
This event will also see the launch of an exciting new inter-schools competition, where Hong Kong students showcase their creations and compete to win a fashion internship.
