If you live in West London or are able to get down there this Thursday evening, we have a heads up about a brilliant event you can get involved with. A glamorous fashion show in aid of the excellent London charity, Hestia Housing and Support, which has been supporting and empowering vulnerable people and women fleeing domestic violence in London since 1970, providing housing, support and protection.
If you fancy supporting this brilliant cause and aren’t averse to high glamour either then Experiencia at Industry Members Club at Westbourne Studios – with fashion by Dorcas Hammond, exclusive golf wear by Tony Q’aja and luxury lingerie by Lingerie Collective and Sedrey.
The night will be hosted by acclaimed world artist Ola Onabula. Other highlights will be live music from the likes of Surianne (Hestia Housing & Support Ambassador and singer of their charity music single), Nate James, Tiger Lilly, Guy Valarino, House of Angels, Monroe, The Chancery Lane and Larissa Eddie.
Not only will the night be a feast for eyes of fashion fans, but there’ll be the chance to win big on the raffle! Tickets cost £10 in aid of the charity, with some frankly amazing prizes such as spa treatments (Adamina Spa of Kensington), designer fashion wear, artwork, as well as ladies membership for the exclusive “Champagne for Life“ programme.
The statistics and facts are grim to know - domestic violence is the biggest cause of death among women aged 19 to 44. That’s greater than road accidents, war or cancer. On average, experience more than 35 assaults before contacting the police. Often, a woman has no alternative but to flee in order to secure the safety of herself and her children.
Hestia supports around 1,600 women and children a year, in their domestic violence services in London. They provide emergency refuge accommodation, second stage accommodation, floating support, outreach and children and family projects. The charity also works with women to get back on their feet and regain their independence – hence this fashion show in which women they have helped are taking part – as a positive message.
The event is free to get into, but it will be guest list only, so if you fancy going down, please email your names to Francois Ferriere on
