n October, twenty four men
and women, who have all been affected by breast cancer, conquered the catwalk in front of a star-studded audience at Breast Cancer Careâ€™s glittering London fashion show. Celebrity guests supporting the charity included Geri Halliwell, Alexandra Burke and Edith Bowman. Kindred Sole were very proud to support The Breast Cancer Care Show at Grosvenor House, London.
The models took to the catwalk to demonstrate that it is possible to look good and feel great after a breast cancer diagnosis. The afternoon show was hosted by Denise Lewis with guests treated to a performance from singer Joe McElderry. The evening show was hosted by Edith Bowman while Breast Cancer Care patron Geri Halliwell, popular dance troupe Flawless and singer Jonathan Ansell closed the show. Alexandra Burke says: â€œThe Breast Cancer Care fashion show has left me speechless. The men and women who conquered the catwalk and proved there is life after a breast cancer diagnosis are so inspirational! The generosity of the audience here tonight has also been incredible.â€?
The models were transformed into stunning catwalk stars by world renowned fashion expert, Hilary Alexander, alongside choreographer, Lesley Goring. Their hair was transformed by stylists from Sassoon Salons with makeup expertly applied by long-term supporters Estée Lauder. Andrea Hull, 41, from London, was one of the Breast Cancer Care models. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 and says: “How often does a normal woman get the opportunity to strut her stuff on the catwalk?! I have always had a secret desire to be a model but never felt pretty or tall enough. Now, thanks to Breast Cancer Care I am fulfilling one of my childhood dreams!” This year Breast Cancer Care raised £345,000 at the London fashion show. All the money raised from this year’s show will continue to help Breast Cancer Care provide expert information and professional support to the 50,000 people diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK every year. Thank you to Breast Cancer Care for involving us in this amazing event!!

ails: Here at KSE we love
them! The jazzier the better! We think of nails as an extension of our personality and a great accessory for every outfit! So we decided to have a chat with a real life nail superstar Keren Smith from The Powder Room. Ladies: Get ready for major nail envy! From festive fun designs to frilly and feminine, there really is no limit to how amazing and unique your nails can look! And really, the sky is the limit when it comes to nail design. So get those talons at the ready!
he Powder Room: Keren Smith, like many women
in business is truly inspiring. Fed up with her run of the mill job Keren decided to take matters into her own hands and set up The Powder Room. Here is her story: Keren: “I got fed up of the routine of getting up in the morning at 6am, getting ready for work, dropping my 3 year old off and then the long commute to work for a job I hated. I’d found that since having my son that was all I did: Work, work, work and I felt like I wasn’t actually living I was just existing so...One day after ending up in the toilets at work crying because of how trapped I felt and how unhappy I was, I quit. Anyway, a year down the line and I couldn’t be happier. I love the work I do, I wake up and look forward to the day ahead. I’ve always been pretty creative and have had a strong interest in nails and beauty. So I got myself qualified and insured and The Powder Room was born. My favourite style of nails would have to be stiletto nails. They’re so elegant and classy providing that they are not too long. I pride myself on originality and most of my work is custom designs and everything is hand painted. Most of my clients will 'let me loose' on their nails as they’ve seen the work I’ve done and know whatever I come up with, they will love. I tend to just do freehand painting from what I think will reflect the clients personality and then see what I end up with. The Flowers design was inspired by my sister in laws wedding as she had beautiful delicate flowers. The second flower design was inspired by canal boats as I was running down the canals one day admiring the art on the boats and thought that nobody does that style anymore. Lastly the Christmas designs are something that is guaranteed to get you in the festive spirit. From the traditional to the quirky, these Christmas designs never fail to make me smile! KSE: Now, not only do we feel inspired by Keren’s determination and dedication to her passion we can’t get wait to get her to spruce our mails up! So ladies, what do you think to her fabulous designs?
