O


ver 300 guests attended, including Patron of the Household Cavalry Foundation charity, HRH Princess


Beatrice. Celebrity guests included Julien MacDonald, Abbey Clancy, Peter Crouch and Melissa Odabash. The Military Wives Choir entertained guests whilst they enjoyed a dinner in support of raising vital funds for these military charities. Fashion legend Hilary Alexander OBE


created an extraordinary show for the black tie event, featuring the Best of British fashion and a special section highlighting young British designers. Abbey Clancy led the finale in a


bespoke dress with a beautiful red lace glove from Sheeva. The evening combined glamour,


excitement, heritage and frantic bidding at a tremendous auction, culminating in a sensational fashion show curated by Hilary. The auction alone raised over £90,000. Items on offer included a Bentley factory tour, a Breitling Wingwalk, a Mount Cinnamon Beach Resort holiday and two places on the Touch Everest trip – an expedition to Everest Base Camp with Household Cavalry personnel to play the highest recorded game of rugby for a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.


Designers who kindly lent pieces for the


fashion show included Alexander McQueen, Marchesa, Hackett, Emilia Wickstead, Jenny Packham, Temperley, Beulah, Jonathan Saunders, Richard Nicoll, Simone Rocha, JW Anderson, Sibling, Henry Holland, David Koma, Holly Fulton, Burberry, Moloh, Sheeva, Mulberry, Paul Smith, Michael Van Der Ham and Todd Lynn. The Household Cavalry Foundation,


registered charity number 1151869 (HCF), needs to raise much needed funds to continue its work in supporting our soldiers, many of whom have just returned from another tour in Afghanistan. Soldiering On Through Life Trust, registered


charity number 1144828 (SOTLT), recognises outstanding achievements of teams or individuals from within the Armed Forces’ community through its annual award ceremony. SOTLT raises sustainable funds for the military charities which support injured Service personnel and their families throughout life. ●
