Sweet Charity In London

-------

Yes, there can be a lot of cattiness in the London fashion world, but when one of their own is felled, the close-knit group bands together. That’s what happened last night, when a crowd that included Tracey Emin, Marios Schwab, Trish Goff, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Daniel “Harry Potter” Radcliffe joined forces to support Oliver Helmsley, a talented Central Saint Martins student who was left paralyzed by a knife attack. Art Against Knives, a charitable organization set up on his behalf, had recruited London’s top designers and artists (that’s Rankin’s contribution above) to donate their wares to a live auction. Radcliffe made off with a Banksy, but fashion impresaria Lulu Kennedy bagged the biggest showstopper, a Meadham Kirchhoff jacket, much to the annoyance of a mystery bidder with fabulous taste who had already won pieces by Giles, Christopher Kane, and Sinha-Stanic. “See these shoulders?” asked a delighted Kennedy. “I am going to live in this baby.”
