Last Wednesday saw us at Harvey Nichols in Manchester for the Teenage Cancer Trust‘s Fashion Show. The show was called Fashion For A Reason and showcased the work the Teenage Cancer Trust does in the North West with young people living with cancer. The event also promoted the Trust’s Cinderella Project.
It was hosted by 19-year-old Olivia Cork, who was recently nominated for Cheshire Woman of the Year, alongside Ministry of Sound DJ James “Caino” Cain.
Olivia was 14 when she was diagnosed with bone cancer. She was treated on our unit at Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool, undergoing three cycles of chemotherapy and subsequently had her right leg amputated.
The event was supported by Harvey Nichols, Smooth FM, Boss Model Management, Barclays Bank and Lloyds Bank. We did the official photography as our contribution and Pete Baxter at Northwest Productions shot the videos.
Best friends Callum Ballantine and Samir Kamani presented their fashion label Made from Manchester, a unique clothing line which offers which offers men’s and women’s T-shirts sporting iconic Manchester slogans. The T-shirts were modelled on the night by the TCT crew and can be purchased online. All profits go to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
