Annual Charity Fashion Show 2012
Such is the scale of the event now that in 2012 Amanda Wakeley OBE flew her SS13 collection directly from her tour of the London, Paris, Milan & New York fashion weeks to Bawtry where she and her team put on a fantastic show especially for the Robinsons Annual Charity Fashion Show. Amanda was the guest of honor and kindly donated a one-on-one personal shopping experience with her at her flagship store on Londons' Fulham Road which was auctioned for in excess of £6,000.
Other regular attendees include former world number 1 golfer Lee Westwood and his wife Laure who up until 2012 lived locally to the store before moving to the sunnier climbs of the USA. Executive TV producer Howard Huntridge and his wife Elaine host the ever popular ‘Price Is Right’ game on stage during the interval between meal and music.
As well as previewing the latest fashions from Robinsons and sampling the food from China Rose, guests are also treated to musical performances from the likes of Portuguese entertainer Bruno Mariano.
The team at Robinsons are always open discussing new and creative ways to raise more money for YCR, be it through ticket sponsorship, table sponsorship or anything else, if you would like to be involved in the continued success of this high profile event please contact us.
