Red Dress Couture Ball

Red is the colour of love... and beautiful couture dresses, by the likes of John Galliano, as this charity event shows

It may not be Couture yet, but this Friday some of the biggest names in fashion will be brought together on the catwalk at the Red Dress Couture Ball; an exceptional evening of fashion and philanthropy. Featured designers and fashion houses including John Galliano, Marchesa, Herve Leger, Max Azria, Temperly and Vera Lang will showcase a beautiful one-off red dress, many of which will be put under the hammer at a live auction after the show. Red, the international colour of hope for those affected by HIV/AIDS is the unifying link carried throughout the evening and all proceeds from the event will be going directly to charities, HELP (Hope, Educate, Love, Protect) and Teach A Man To Fish. Produced by a group of passionate Oxford University students, this special event hopes to raise awareness as well as funds, and having already garnered the support of such industry leaders as Anna Wintour and Harold Tilman, it looks set to do just that.
