Sunday Specials: 30/05/2010

Firstly, something that is completely unrelated to fashion, but still close to our hearts:

Our friend (who also happens to be the coolest person ever) has just started working for a charity, The Winchester Project. She'll be working on loads of events and some of them seem really cool (concert, fashion show). The first event is a 7 day cycle tour of the French Alps which her collegue is doing, starting on the 11th June.
He has a JustGiving page here, where you can donate, and this closes on the 30th June.
The money will go to helping children and young people a different direction in life. The Winch is a place where they can attend and be safe and creative. Contributions will go to a minibus, which will help less advantaged kids travel to The Winch and participate in it's projects. A key aim of the charity is to offer sports and activities to youths that have offended in the past and help them turn their lives around.
There are other ways to help support the charity as well. One is, when shopping online, a percentage of the sale will go to the charity. Check it out here. The other is a search engine that raises money wile you use it.

We will be doing and helping with a lot of the projects at The Winch, so keep you eyes open!

Also, Triumph (a lingerie brand) will be hosting their annual Inspiration Award early next month and are taking in votes from the 4th June. This is a competition which challenged students from international design schools to create a showpiece set. You can vote here and the last day to vote in 10th June.

Here are some of our favourite sketches from the contestants:

Hope you all have a fabulous Sunday and happy Bank Holiday Monday to all of you who have tomorrow off!
