Thursday evening two weeks ago saw the who’s who of London’s art and fashion worlds come together to drink, dance and bid at the aptly named ‘Art Plus Fashion’ annual fundraising event at the Whitechapel Gallery. The evening kicked off with the exciting art auction, where tensions rose along with the bids for pieces from icons Kate Moss, Vivienne Westwood and Corinne Day. The auction was followed by fabulous fashion shows featuring designs from RCA and CSM students- of note the grey and yellow neon catwalk perfectly matched my United Nude heels! Shows over, the catwalk transformed into an elevated dance-floor, crammed with artists and fashionistas – including Dinos Chapman, Tiphaine de Lussy and Lara Bohinc – who danced (some of us in a handbag circle), into the early hours fuelled by champagne and oysters. Raising in total over £300,000 for the Whitechapel Gallery’s Education Programme, this amazing evening was made all the more special for Ginger and myself as we were announced joint winners of the Harpers Bazaar Fashion Journalism Award.
