We are pleased to announce that Fashion For Relief will be working with the Mayor’s Fund for London.
The Mayor’s Fund for London is a social mobility charity, supporting young Londoners from low-income backgrounds. Funds raised will go into their employability programs, which offer employability support, training and education to help young people, regardless of their background, gain access to fulfilling careers.
Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’m delighted that Naomi and Fashion For Relief have chosen to support the Mayor’s Fund for London. We share the belief that all young people, regardless of their background, should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential, and this support will make a big difference in the charity’s work to help young Londoners.”
This year’s Fashion For Relief, set in the heart of London Fashion Week, will take place at the British Museum. The evening – sponsored by CHROME HEARTS® and GUCCI – includes a cocktail reception, glamorous fashion show, gala dinner and auction, musical performances, and an exclusive after-party.
