Wear it For Autism is a fashion show with a difference. All the models taking part have, in some way, been affected by Autism – and all the profits will go towards improving the lives of others with the condition. This is a cause I naturally feel really strongly about supporting as I have a child with Autism and I see that families affected by Autism are not always given the full support that is needed, especially as the children get older.
The event will be held on 10th Sept in Soho London and is organised by Anna Kennedy Online, a charity supporting UK families affected by Autism.
Each person taking part in the event had been nominated earlier this year by a friend or family member and chosen by the judging panel, which included presenter Gail Porter, actress Adele Silva and the Principal of Pineapple Performing Arts Covent Garden, Maggie Paterson, for their dedication and selflessness.
The winners will be split into five categories; mums, dads, carers, children with autism and adults with autism. They will all be treated to a head-to-toe makeover before hitting the stage. Guests will also be treated to a variety of entertainment, including acts from the hugely successful Autism’s Got Talent show.
Anna Kennedy said: “The idea behind Wear It For Autism was to spoil those who usually
never get a chance to treat – or even think of – themselves. Living with autism can be
challenging and extremely demanding, so we wanted to create a special event that will be fun for all involved, as well as raise vital funds to campaign for the rights of those with this disability.”
