This year’s fashion genius on center stage for the Red Charity Gala is London based Filipino designer Lesley Mobo. His pieces are show stopping and luxurious but edgy and almost downright delectable. We are nothing short of slack jawed and amazed by his pieces and we can’t wait to show the public his creations!

Lesley’s credentials are as long as the train on Princess Diana’s wedding gown and are equally as impressive. Graduating from the prestigious Central St Martin’s in 2002 with a First Class B.A. Honours Degree in Fashion, his final year collection titled “Maniac” was co-sponsored by Cerruti allowing him to use luxurious tailoring fabrics from Lanifico Fratelli Cerruti Italy. He also received the Colin Barnes Award for fashion illustration from Central St Martin’s, a nomination in the Chartered Society of Designers Fashion Awards held in the British Natural History Museum, and participated in the ‘Fashion in Motion exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum from which his works were featured in the BBC News. In 2002 he was interviewed by John Galliano for the House of Christian Dior, and has also assisted for Clements Ribeiro and Cacharel. In 2002 he accepted a designer post in the newly established brand Jasmine Di Milo in Harrods, London.

Red Charity Gala welcomes you home, Lesley and we await with bated breath, your collection!
