ICMS RAG Fashion Show 2020
We were delighted to be invited to support this year’s flagship charity fashion event organised by the Imperial College London School of Medicine.
The show was held on 10th March at the famous "Clapham Grand" in London and the venue was packed to the rafters with revellers. As the music pumped out, 8 of ICLSM’s finest male medics took to the runway in our Pink House Mustique trunks and very stylish they looked too!
Additional funds were raised by auctioning off the trunks after the show.
All proceeds will be used to support two amazing charities: Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank – currently under more pressure even than usual, as they are having to close foodbanks in line with social distancing guidelines and provide ‘delivery only’ service.
Schistosomiasis Control Initiative – which, since 2002, has supported the delivery of 200 million effective treatments against parasitic worms in sub-Saharan Africa.
Since this show Imperial has frequently been in the news as leading epidemiologist Professor Neil Ferguson of Imperial College London has been advising the Government and provided the modelling that led to the lockdown in the UK. Imperial has also secured funding to test a human vaccine against COVID-19 and we wish them the very best of luck in this extremely important work.

The Mustique Mule is a well recognised sight and sound on the island. These little beach buggies, which are known on the island as "mules", are the only form of motorised transport here. We think of them as workhorses as they are used for everything you can think of!
We have learned that the VSPCA is under a great strain to continue feeding animals that are still abandoned in the red zone, nearly five months after the La Soufrière volcano had a catastrophic series of eruptions.
We are very excited that our new Limited Edition Lotty B silk pyjamas are in production - and within an hour's drive of our UK HQ!
As part of our sustainability plan, we are planning more production in the UK, but this is our first project for a long time and we can't wait to share it with you...
