The inaugural Fashion Run created by Nick Ede is supporting the British Fashion Council Foundation takes place between Friday 18th and Tuesday the 22nd of September, London Fashion Week.
Anyone who loves the fashion world, from designers, brands, make-up artists, influencers, hair stylists, models, stylists and fashion lovers everywhere will be encouraged to take part in the 5K run. Funds raised by the participants will be used to support the UK fashion industry via the British Fashion Council Foundation. Runners will then have the option to select one other charity to support from their sponsor donations; the list of charities chosen for this year’s race are: MTV Staying Alive, Mermaids, Wild At Heart Foundation, Chickenshed Theatre, Rays Of Sunshine, AKT, Diana Award, Dress For Success, Great Ormond Street and The Stroke Association.
Tapping into a global trend for running, sports-luxe fashion and the outdoor fitness boom we have seen as a result of the lockdown, the event provides a perfect opportunity for fashionistas to engage in a bit of fitness led philanthropy, supporting the industry they love.
A one-off payment of £25 will be required covering the 25% donation to the British Fashion Council Foundation and a Fashion Run 2020 pack which will consist of an exclusive t-shirt designed by iconic fashion designer Julien Macdonald in conjunction with Hit + Run the ethically sourced t-shirt company, and other goodies.
