FOLLOWING THE SUCCESS OF THEIR 2015 SHOW, SILVERLINERS RETURN TO THE CATWALK
Clements and Church are thrilled to be working with The Silverlining Charity again following the success of their 2015 Fashion Show sponsored by Royds Withy King. On Thursday 30 November, at Rhodes House, Oxford, over 25 disabled and able-bodied models will take to the runway to raise awareness and funds for the charity.
The Silverlining provides a support network which enables people with brain injuries, and their families, to re-immerse and re-engage with their communities. The charity aims to help them rebuild their confidence, as well as supporting them to aid others in similar positions to lead a fulfilling life. Silverliners and Clients of Royds Withy King will be on the catwalk alongside experienced models.
It was at the Silverlining 2015 event that Clements and Church first dressed Oxford model Kit Butler. It was one of Kit’s first runway shows, and is still one of his most memorable. Kit, then 16 walked down the catwalk with Cerebral palsy sufferer Mary Jayne Allen, who was taking her first steps in public for a decade. She is still walking to this day.
Soon after the show in his home town, Kit’s career took off. He went on to open Coach’s men’s show and appeared in editorals for Wonderland and Vogue Italia soon after. He has since walked for Balmain, Cerruti, Ralph Lauren and many more. Now 19, he is the face of Clements and Church’s Autumn/Winter campaign. He is returning to his roots, returning from his modelling campaigns in the US to walk in the show; once again, dressed in Clements and Church.
