Sunday, September 19th. The stars were out to celebrate the latest GCC event at BAFTA in London last night.

Hosted during London Fashion Week, the evening brought out some of the key players across the film, fashion, and music industries including hosts Colin and Livia Firth, Anna Wintour, Andrew Bolton, Natalie Massenet, William Vintage and Keira Knightley. Other notable attendees included Victoria Beckham fresh from her NYFW week show,, Christopher Bailey and Mario Testino.

The evening was a celebration of vintage fashion, sustainable style and the first ever eco-mannequins, created by Bonaveri Italy, and which were clothed in William Vintage couture, including pieces by Givenchy, Capucci and Alexander McQueen. Vintage clothing is one of the best ways to incorporate sustainability into your wardrobe as it celebrates durability, multi-wear use, emotional attachment to a garment, and most importantly aesthetic taste – the best vintage pieces are iconic odes to fashion’s rich history and some of the great designers beyond our time.

The evening was followed by the UK premiere of the Met Gala- focused documentary The First Monday in May.
