Kaoska Annual Fashion Show in Aid of Variety
Creative, fresh, and edgy were just some of the words used to describe the city’s latest design talent on show at last night’s sparkling Kaoska annual Fashion Show. This year it supported Variety, the Children’s Charity and attracted names from movies, TV and media like Kevin Leslie, Raffaello Degruttola, Simona Roman, Elise Quevedo, Samuel Anderson and Tonia buxton who came together with key investment and corporate firms to celebrate fashion.
Designers offered celebrity guests the opportunity to wear their designs on the night, to highlight their collections to the key high street buyer groups and selected independent boutique buyers that attended.
In the aftermath of London Fashion Week the event, that took place at the DoubleTree by Hilton London – Marble Arch Hotel, was created to help promote local designers with key fashion business names.

Managing Director, and founder of Kaoska Fashion House UK Ltd, Nomy Khan said:
“I am so pleased the event was another huge success this year. I’ve said it before but it is truly inspirational to see designers having their big opportunity on the London stage. By introducing them to the key industry buyers it really helps provide a key networking opportunity. We have a great team on this event. I’m also especially pleased this year to be fundraising at the event for Variety, the Children’s Charity. The work they do has such a positive impact on children’s lives and I’m delighted to be supporting them.”
