I am looking forward to attending “Splendours of the Commonwealth”, (www.splendoursofthecommonwealth.com) on September 12th at the May Fair hotel. It’s a catwalk show, celebrating talented fashion designers and models from the Commonwealth as part of London Fashion Week. London Fashion Week has grown to become one of the big four global fashion trade shows, promoting the eclectic British approach to fashion.
The proceeds from this show will support the Commonwealth Countries League Education Fund (CCLEF) (http://www.ccl-int.org/) which has sponsored thousands of bright girls through secondary education since 1967 across 25
Commonwealth countries. Without their help, these girls would not otherwise receive an education and their lives would be very different indeed. The charity’s founders, the Commonwealth Countries League (CCL), were formed out of the suffragette movement in the 1920s, and they work with the High Commissions in London.
