CHARITY FASHION LIVE SS15 THE FINAL FILM:
.
We hope you enjoyed following the #CharityFashionLive event on twitter and instagram yesterday as much as we enjoyed putting it on!
Here it is then, #CharityFashionLive 2014 -  the film edited over night last night!….We’d love to know what you think of the looks we recreated in @BritishRedCross yesterday during the live LFW shows! It was a challenge indeed but a whole lot of fun and we’d love to know which looks you like best! Our fave’s might have to be the Sibling looks but probably because they let us know how much they loved our recreations (blushing, much?…)
Let us know @backofwardrobe on twitter and don’t forget that you can bid to own your own LFW SS15 inspired looks on ebay by searching the ‘London Fashion Week Looks SS15’ collection! All proceeds to The British Red Cross. 
A big thank you to everyone on the Back of the Wardrobe team that made this event possible - Darren O’Mahoney (Co Director, Camera man, Editor) Claire Pepper (Stills Photographer), Nadia Themistocleous (Social Media Strategy Manager), Anya Du Sauzay (Social Media Manager), Joyce Peters (Model), Rosalind Jana (Model), Roisin Griffin (Production and Floor Manager), Renu Plahe (Make Up), Liliana Oprenescu (Make Up), Ada Kalgren (Event day Window Styling), and of course the wonderful staff and shop manager Tim Briggs at the British Red Cross Buckingham Palace Road!

SEE IT, LOVE IT, GET IT - #LFW - BRITISH RED CROSS STYLE

image

imageNormally we all watch #LFW dreaming of being able to lay our hands on some of the fabulous pieces we see come out on the catwalk. Unfortunately, while we all love to lust, for many, of us DREAMING is all we will be doing in regards to owning anything we see during #LFW. 

But what if you could get an outfit much like the one you saw come out on the catwalk, for a snip of the price and all packaged up in a whole lot of ‘feel good’.

Watch us recreate #LFW looks in a British Red Cross Store LIVE as they come out on the catwalk @backofwardrobe on Saturday the 13th. And even better - bid for the outfits we put together in our ebay  auction to own your very own #LFW look! Follow #CharityFashionLive on twitter to support The British Red Cross and to get your hands on fashion goodies.
