The evening commenced with celebrities and well-known entrepreneurs like Philip Green, together with members of the public lucky enough to get tickets, drinking champagne (or in my case water!)
As Attia and I seated ourselves, taking photographs on the way, we were happy to discover that our seats were on the end of the 3rd row back with an great view of the catwalk.
To begin with Trudie Styler, activist, environmentalist and wife of Sting, gave an introduction to the catwalk show. This was followed by a thought-provoking speech by Jonnie Horner, co-founder of Haiti Hospital Appeal, raising awareness of the tragedy in Haiti and the precarious situation of mothers-to-be. Next, Sarah Brown, patron of the White Ribbon Alliance, explained about the charity's work promoting safe pregnancy and childbirth. Before the parade of fashion, we were treated to a song by Beverley Knight.
Opening the show, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, along with Annabelle Neilson, paid tribute to late British fashion designer Alexander McQueen by wearing blue mini dresses from his last collection.
The music cleverly changed to Lady Gaga's Bad Romance as Girl's Aloud star Nicola Roberts with her over-exaggerated hair, had her turn on the catwalk, followed by members of The Saturdays and Pixie Geldof, daughter of Bob who was sitting opposite me, shaded from the glare of the photographers by his brown hat.
