Fashion for the Brave: style on parade

Model Olivia Inge poses with WO2 Warren Brown and Staff Cpl Julian Hoggarth of the Household Cavalry at last night’s Fashion for the Brave charity gala.

Inge’s dress was designed especially for the occasion by Vivienne Westwood. The Flags used to make the dress were supplied by Britain’s oldest flagmakers, Turtle & Pearce Ltd.

The event aimed to raise £1 million for wounded servicemen and their families and opened with a message of support from the Princess Royal.

The catwalk finale, styled by The Daily Telegraph ‘s Hilary Alexander, featured a ceremonial display by the regiment.

More than 50 of the country’s leading designers and brands took part in the show at London’s Dorchester Hotel with proceeds going to Help for Heroes, The Soldiers’ Charity and the Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund.
