Thursday 20th Sept was one of the weeks highlights with a flurry of VIP guests descending upon Cowley Manor for a night of fine dining, glamour and couture fashion.

The evening started with an elegant champagne reception, sponsored by Tattinger.

In aid of Hop, Skip and Jump the evenings guest of honour was Elizabeth Hurley, who is the charity’s patron and her partner Shane Warne. Click Mitchell, founder of HSJ made an inpassioned speach about the charities work which incentivised all to dig deep for the auction.

Ohter guests of honour included Van Morrison, Dr Dawn Harper, Lisa Maxwell and many other glamourous guests

Guests were then treated to a extravagant show of some of the countrys leading desingers including  Nina Naustdal, Yan To, Juno Says Hello, Hemyca, Jexika, Pussy Willow Couture, The White Rose Bridal Company, Almagro Couture, and millinery by Denise Innes Spencer, all chosen by our Fashion Director Sarah-Hayley Owen.  Julez Hamilton, provided the perfect accompagnment to the fashion on display, singing a powerful and dramatic mixture of ballads.

Our models were out of this world, with stunning hair rminiscent of the 40’s provided by Stuart Holmes Hair Team and the beautiful make up was provided by Sophie Everett and her team.

The evening was a rip roaring success and we couldnt have acheived it without the support of our wonderful volunteers, and the PR team lead by Annabel Rayer of Silverball.
