I was thrilled to be invited to a very prestigious Charity Fashion show at the Novotel in Cannes to comment on the latest fashion trends but more importantly to bring awareness to a very important charity called Girl Rising.
Girl Rising is a global campaign for girls’ education.
They use the power of storytelling to share the simple truth that educating girls can transform societies. Girl Rising unites girls, women, boys and men who believe every girl has the right to go to school and the right to reach her full potential.
The mission is to change the way the world values the girl.
Everything the charity does is to ensure that girls’ education is part of the mainstream conversation.
Being someone who knows a little more than average about fashion I have to say I was excited when I arrived just in time to see the beginning of the fashion show. The same group of amateur models were presenting outfits by different designers. The presented fashion was more the average day-to-day wear but when MyAnnika dresses took the stage and presented the new summer collection I was blown away!!!
The models suddenly had a change in attitude. It seemed as if the sexy badge dresses transformed the girls into real superstars. Finally I saw the attitude I was missing before!
Girl Rising managed to collect a couple of thousand Euros for their Charity this evening. We all had a great evening, free drinks and snacks and made some great new friends and supported a very worthy cause!
Just take a look at the pictures and comment in the section below on how you feel about the outfits!
