“Harry’s #keepingitreal event is about styling amazing REAL women who I think truly deserve the makeover of a lifetime!

Keeping it real 2 took place at Searcy’s The Balcony in Selfridges Birmingham on 2nd March 2017 in aid of Help Harry Help Others Charity.

Our event name was conceived from a favourite Harry saying to his Mom, Georgie, about always “Keeping it Real” and our event is special in that all of our models lives’ had been affected by cancer in some way. They were treated to a makeover by Bobbi Brown cosmetics and had their hair styled within Selfridges. The emphasis on the fashion wear provided by Selfridges, Birmingham for Libby Walton from Styling You was based on “Real Women, Real sizes and Realistic prices!”

Guests were greeted with a glass of prosecco, had an opportunity to network, enjoy a fashion show with our special models, modelling a day to dusk looks whilst sampling a selection of Searcy’s canapés .

Guests enjoyed a Gastro Card discount of 10% off any additional food and drink purchased on the evening, had an opportunity to win some fabulous raffle prizes . Our special guests left with a very special HHHO Goodie Bag. We are delighted that HHHO Ambassador Ed James from Heart FM (a HHHO ambassador) came along again to join us and that Danielle Lloyd, HHHO supporter came to support this fantastic charity event, so it was an evening of fizz, fashion and fun!

We had some fabulous raffle prizes from our HHHO supporters and our thanks go to them, Searcy’s and Selfridges staff for all their help and support for the event.

Since our last event in 2014, Georgie Moseley, CEO and Founder of HHHO has not stood still in raising valuable funds, but has been instrumental in founding the Birmingham Drop In Cancer Support Centre, which offers help and support to cancer suffers across the Midlands. Our models for the evening had received support from this valuable centre.
