Fashion for Relief - Haiti

Most of the time in the office I'm stuck creating spreadsheets and analysing data but Thursday night allowed me to make the most of one of the perks of working in the jewellery industry!  For the last two years, Garrard has supported Naomi Campbell's fashion for relief and I have been lucky enough to work backstage dressing the models in our fabulous jewellery!  This year our sister company Stephen Webster had the chance and lucky old me got the chance to help again!  It was a manic evening, but great fun and a fantastic amount of money was raised for the White Ribbon Alliance to support mothers and children in Haiti. 

I had grand plans to try and take some great photos to document the scenes backstage, but it was crazy busy and we had to ensure we got as much jewellery on the models as possible! All the models and celebs were so lovely and it was great night and a fantastic experience to see what actually takes place backstage at a catwalk show! I've added a few images of my own below and the show images are from here.
