On Saturday 4th October, leading British fashion house Jacques Vert Group is hosting a charity walk around St James’s Park, London, followed by a VIP fashion catwalk, led by newsreader and TV presenter Natasha Kaplinsky, to showcase a range of new season coats from its collection of Elegant British Brands.

To join the ‘Coatwalk 2014’ tickets cost £27 which will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support. £27 is enough to fund a Macmillan nurse for one whole hour and will make a real difference for people affected by cancer.

Spaces are limited for this exclusive day; only 300 tickets are available.

‘Coatwalk 2014’ will start around 12pm with a 3km walk in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, starting at One Great George Street, a stunning Grade II listed building off Parliament Square. The walk loops around St James’s Park taking in the stunning autumnal park views, with a photo opportunity for all participants with the celebrity event host.

After the 40-minute walk, participants will enjoy the ‘Coatwalk’ fashion show at One Great George Street. The high-energy ‘Coatwalk’ fashion show will feature Macmillan professionals and people who have benefited from their support, modelling outerwear, dresses and knitwear from the Elegant British Brands including: Windsmoor, Jacques Vert, Kaliko, Planet and Precis Petite.

Guests will enjoy afternoon tea refreshments as well as being able to pick out a new coat in a special shopping area. £10 from the sale of each coat sold at the event will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
