Just 3 years ago we were lucky enough to be a part of The Elephant Family’s incredible Animal Ball 2013 held at St James Palace and attended by celebrities, fashion designers and Royalty from across the globe to raise money for Mark Shands Elephant Family Charity.. The event raised a whopping £600,000, £4000 of which was donated by Carrie Jenkinson Millinery in the form of 2 Masquerade Masks which were auctioned off from Sotheby’s along side designers such as Diane Von Furstenburg, Vivienne Westwood, Mario Testino, Jasper Conran and Minolo Blahnik to name but a few..
When we were approached by The Elephant Family & The Perfect World to take part again this year we simply jumped at the opportunity!! This Years event will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden on Thursday15th September and has been organised by the fabulous Ragnhild Jacobsson (pictured above in the Swan Mask) and one of the biggest fashion designers in Sweden Camilla Jonsson.
For this event I have designed another 2 masquerade masks, an elephant mask and a pheasant mask, both pictured below alongside just some of the fabulously designed Masquerade Masks…
Unfortunately i will be unable to attend the event this year but I’m looking forward to seeing all the photo’s of everyone marvellous masquerade masks.
Here are some of the memories from Animal Ball 2013
