As part of @WomenforWomenUK International’s #SheInspiresMe Campaign, The Store and The Vinyl Factory’s Brewer Street Car Park hosted the second #SheInspiresMe Car Boot Sale! Proceeds raised go to the organisation which helps women survivors of war. I’m so honoured to have shared the day with some incredibly powerful women – thank you so much @BritaFS for leading such a fearless team and including us in it. So proud to be part of this organisation. Today in Brewer Street my car boot sold a range of one-off samples, sustainable, organic, vintage, second-hand, Made in Africa and Made in Britain! Ethical fashion, all in line with my role as Campaign Director of @RedCarpetGreenDress. Items from brands including Shaeha, We Are Thought, Gather And See, Umran, Deborah Lyons and more – for more information on these brands follow Red Carpet Green Dress.

(3/3) Last but not least thank you to my personal team and the people who drive this organisation forward every day – you are the reason we care so much! @Uneeq__ @VickyFifi (#TRIBEVIBES), Jono and @AfroChickOnTheRun for making our car boot so live, @JamesDHodge and @BeeGentle for coming all the way down and the friends and family who popped in @Mariama_A @LauraMvulaOfficial @S_Manchisi. Thank you to @BritaFS, @AlexEagleOfficial, @NicsCasey and really everyone at @WomenForWomenUK who cares so much about giving opportunities and encouragement to these women survivors of war around the world. Can’t tag everyone but the love is real. All the volunteers and wider team were amazing @EdmondsAnnie. 💕 _______________________________________________________ #WomenForWomen #SheInspiresMe #Fundraising #GiveBack #FashionForGood #Fashion

OSCARS 2017

On my way Oscars Sunday. I wore a piece I designed to the Oscars in a marigold colour because I wanted to channel some celebration. Being the lightest hue of the spectrum, the colour psychology of yellow is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun. My jewellery is from @AweInspired and has a powerful story of survival (see earlier post). The hair clips in my braids are a tribute to African braid art – these beautiful braids by @BraidsByRubee took 10 hours and I wanted to showcase them properly so more to come. Pop over to @RedCarpetGreenDress and thank you for supporting us all! More to come – still in it.

Oscars Sunday. My jewellery is @AweInspired_. I was thrilled to be wearing a Signature Diamond Medallion from AWE Alive We’re Empowered (@aweinspired_) a new fine jewelry company on a mission to honor, unite, and celebrate all survivors, regardless of affliction. AWE jewelry is made of solid sterling silver or 14k yellow gold: designed to endure like the survivors it honors. The AWE Medallion’s four droplets represent the ingredients of survival (blood, sweat, tears of sorrow, and tears of joy) and 20% of each AWE sale benefits four charity partners that directly serve those in need of assistance on their road to survival. Check out our girls on @RedCarpetGreenDress. Another year, more lessons and more blessings. _______________________________________________________ #RCGD #RCGD2017 #Oscars2017 #Oscars #Fashion
