Bee Gee Robin Gibb and his wife Dwina Murphy-Gibb are opening up their home for an event which will help raise awareness and vital funds for the Against Breast Cancer charity.
The ‘event,’ named the Splash of Pink Fashion Show and Couture will take place on September 25th at the couple’s home in Thame, Oxfordshire (UK).
The main feature of the day will be a stunning live catwalk fashion show, with models being styled by award-winning celebrity hairdresser Lee Stafford and his team. They have joined together with individual fashion designers and London fashion house Matches Fashion, who will all showcase pieces from some of the world’s top couture houses. Among the designers you will see featured will be: Paul Costelloe, John Rocha, Pringles, Burberry Porsum, Matthew Williamson, Preen, Erdem, Diane von Furstenberg and many others.
The event has the support from various high-profile celebrities, including: Simon Cowell (a Patron of the charity); his mother, Julie Cowell (Against Breast Cancer’s Honorary President); Ben Shephard (Patron); Duncan Bannatyne, Lucy and Greg Rusedski, Paul Costelloe and Jimmy Choo.
The event will begin with some elegant champagne on the picturesque lawn of the Gibb’s home. Guests will be able to wander freely around the private garden and orchard, before making their way into the marquee for the specially designed catwalk show, followed by an indulgent and scrumptious English Couture Tea. During the afternoon, there will be a charity Auction and Raffle offering glittering prizes, including some unique pieces as well as special donations by some of the hottest designers around. The event will close with an exclusive, live music performance by Robin Gibb providing the perfect finale.
Against Breast Cancer is a registered charity that funds unique research into breast cancer. Our aim is to find vital information to increase survival after diagnosis and ultimately to discover a vaccine against breast cancer.
Against Breast Cancer’s team of researchers, based at University College and Westminster London, is leading an innovative research programme which analyses how the cancer cell, patients’ natural resistance and their environment interact. Our unique Diet & Lifestyle Study, working with women who already have breast cancer to find ways to maximise their survival, is taking place in 50 hospitals across the UK.
