Coatwalk 2014 was kicked off by a fabulous day of fashion in support of Macmillan Cancer Support. Newsreader and TV presenter Natasha Kaplinsky joined us on Saturday 4th October to host the event at One Great George Street, a stunning Grade II listed building at the heart of Westminster.
The day began with a 3km charity walk around stunning St James’s Park, London and a fabulous day of fashion and fun to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. After the walk, guests were treated to afternoon tea refreshments followed by a VIP celebrity-hosted fashion spectacular. This fabulous fashion show included professional models, musicians, dancers, and some very special guests.
We were honoured and excited to welcome Natasha Kaplinsky to Coatwalk 2014 to host the event for us. Newsreader and TV presenter Natasha is known for her work at ITV, BBC and Sky News, and, of course, her winning part on Strictly Come Dancing. Lots of other special guests joined us for the event and to walk in the show, including Emilia Fox, Joanna David, Arlene Phillips, Alex Jones, Jo Wood, Imogen Thomas, Lizzy Cundy and many more.
Macmillan Cancer Support is a charity that provides practical, emotional and financial support for people affected by cancer. A cancer diagnosis can change everything and Macmillan can help with money worries, advice about work, or ensure you have someone who can listen if you just want to talk. Macmillan Cancer Support is made up of millions of supporters, professionals, volunteers, campaigners and people affected by cancer. No one should face cancer alone.
