The first “Blue Steel Appeal” event will be a big fashion auction on eBay on 7th March auctioning a selection of money-can’t-buy fashion items and experiences donated by some of fashion’s most iconic brands and individuals.
David said about the appeal, “Having seen first hand the challenges people face in the UK and across the world I wanted to do something to help. After working briefly with Comic Relief on the Absolutely Fabulous sketch with Kate Moss and Stella McCartney last year, I decided to launch the “Blue Steel Appeal” to fundraise for Red Nose Day through fashion. I hope that the fashion industry will come together, have some fun, show off their best Blue Steel looks and raise money at the same time. There are truly wonderful people in the industry and it would be great to show the public the lighter side of what we do and encourage them to join us in fundraising. If we all rally together, I know we can really help a lot of people.”
