This very special fundraising party, in partnership with Harvey Nichols Manchester and Cheshire Life, will give guests a chance to view modern and vintage couture and will feature some extraordinary fashion pieces by British Nigerian designer Duro Olowu, who has an array of  A-list fans including Michelle Obama. With live music, fantastic African inspired fusion food and a fashion presentation from Harvey Nichols it promises to be a glamorous and lovely evening.
