Welwyn Garden City Karen Millen and Figleaves catwalk show raises �5000
A CATWALK show fronted by one of the biggest names in the fashion industry helped raise �5,000 for charity.
World-famous designer Karen Millen was at Tewin Bury Farm, just outside WGC, to host an evening where volunteers, with no previous modelling experience, hit the catwalk to show off the very best WGC-based fashion e-tailer Figleaves has to offer.
Karen, whose Icelandic fashion label is worn across the globe, wasn’t the only celeb at the show.
She was joined by former Hollyoaks star Gary Lucy, as well as Kevin Adams, of Fame Academy and GMTV, who created the choreography that belied the fact the models were novices.
The event raised funds for Teens Unite Fighting Cancer, the charity co-launched by Karen Millen to help teenagers with life-limiting illnesses.

“The finale featured the hottest hunks from Herts in nothing but bow ties and underwear.
“However, the real stars of the evening were the amazing teenagers and their heartfelt personal experiences that they shared with the audience that reminded all those present how the evening had come about.”
Karen said: “I am so proud that events such as this have enabled Teens Unite to acquire our first respite home in Hertfordshire.
“The teenagers are the inspiration for the charity and their strength and empowering outlook is an example to us all.”
