    I’m still in tears having missed this wonderful event with some of the worlds leading black designers. I say yes as it reinforces an awareness of Alzheimer and the need for further research. I have just noticed there is an omission of award winning Designer Clariscia Gill and Top Model Siobhan Ridguard who’s efforts was a contribution with all the named designers.

    Kind regards
