To celebrate this year’s Whitley Fund for Nature’s [WFN] Hope Gala at Natural History Museum, Elle L and Fashion for Conservation [FFC] hosted an exclusive after party with Embargo at Mayfair’s The Cuckoo Club in Mayfair.
As guests entered their hands were painted with an eco-glitter gold ‘X’ to mark the message: ‘no to extinction’. Designs from FFC’s featured designers, Mother of Pearl and Deborah Milner were showcased to guests. Keynotes were given from Georgina Domburger, director of WFN, co-founders Ava Holmes, Samantha Zwicker and music artist Elle L for Fashion for Conservation. Their joint vision was to advocate the power of each individual to support the greater environment and sustainability. It was announced that the goal of raising £1m for grassroots had been achieved through the partnership and special gala dinner at Natural History Museum.
Delicious canapés were created by Arnaud Stevens, Plate London and drinks were designed by Campari Group, ‘Hope’ a twist on Aperol Spritz and ‘Mother Earth’ and Ondina Gin and No.1 Botanicals were served.
