Fashion Kicks is a charity event that was held at the start of the month. I wanted to have a look back to that special night and see how it went and show you some great videos and images from the night. Organised and hosted by Jane and Shay Given the Fashion Kicks event is a mixture of fashion, food and football all in aid for Macmillan Cancer.
Here is a video highlighting what the event is all about.
This years event which was presented by Dawn Porter pulled out all the stops to put on a truly magnificent example of charity fundraising The evening was kicked off with a Champagne reception, before an incredible fashion show from Selfridges which as part of the runway models included some premiership football players including Darren Bent, Emile Heskey, Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott.
For many the dinner exceeded the fashion as a collection of Britain's leading chefs put together an exquisite menu to be enjoyed before the entertainment came on.
People were treated to a show from Got To Dance winners Prodijig whose modern take on the traditional Irish dancing is truly mind blowing.
After this people had to catch their breath but only for a minute as the charity auction was next to entertain and astound. All of this was to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity that is close to both Jane and Shay Given's hearts. The final icing on the cake to round off an incredible evening was to of course have multi million selling boyband (manband?) Westlife perform their final charity performance before going off on their last tour.
The evening managed to raise an astronomical £200,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support while putting on a fantastic show that everyone has enjoyed.
A huge congratulations to Jane and Shay Given for taking the time to put together this amazing fundraising night that was such a huge success, I am sure that next years will be even better. We have put together a collection of images and videos from the night that you can have a look at.
