This week saw the launch of the first ever Global Kids Fashion Week, a concept brought to life by the clever team at AlexandAlexa.com
With runway shows featuring the most beautiful children wearing exquisite designs from houses such as Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren and Kenzo, there was never any doubt that this was going to be an enormous success – success that was certainly helped in part by the overwhelming support from the British press.
The night before the VIP runway show – which was attended by celebrities and leading names in the fashion industry alike – my friend and fellow GKFW ambassador Portia Freeman and I hosted an intimate cocktail reception at the elegant women’s only members club, Grace Belgravia. My favourite juice cleanse company PLENISHCleanse were behind the evening’s cocktails, expertly mixed by The Cocktail Gardener.
Our event was not only to launch GKFW, but to open the online charity auction in aid of one of the most deserving charities in the UK, Kids Company.
Bella Freud, a friend of Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh and enormous supporter of the charity, gave a speech that touched all who attended that night; I only wish we had invited more guests, as to hear Bella’s magnificent, heartfelt speech made the evening so incredibly special.

Congratulations to all involved – and much love to the selfless, incredible team at Kids Company.
