Naked Heart Foundation’s most fabulous Fund Fair hosted by Natalia Vodianova will return to London’s Roundhouse on 20 February 2018, bringing its unique fundraising twist on the traditional funfair back for the fifth time. A highlight of the London Fashion Week calendar, expect the unexpected from the annual charity event that has seen Natalia Vodianova selling kisses, Karlie Kloss selling her cookie line ‘Klossies’, Liv Tyler manning a coconut shy and Doutzen Kroes showing off her paper plane skills, all in order to support families of children with special needs.
The 2018 edition will be truly out of this world and star studded in every sense with its intergalactic space theme.
Having generated over £2.3 million towards the crucial work of Natalia Vodianova’s Naked Heart Foundation, helping children with physical, mental and sensory disabilities, the offbeat event encourages participants to try their luck at classic games from the Hook-a-duck to Skittles and Bowling to win outrageous, unique prizes from the generous participating brands including Guerlain, Dior, By Kilian, and Maxx Royal Resorts among others.
Taking over the iconic Roundhouse, the worlds of fashion, film, art and music will again collide as guests bid for the chance to spin the event’s notorious Wheel of Fortune to win money-can’t-buy prizes. The London extravaganza comes hot on the heels of Naked Heart Foundation’s first-ever US edition of a Fabulous Fund Fair, joining forces with amfAR on a Jeff Koons art-directed Halloween wonderland complete with Louis Vuitton bumper cars.
Founder of the Naked Heart Foundation Natalia Vodianova describes the Fund Fair: “I love that this fabulous event highlights how important fun and games are to the human experience, right across the spectrum, and what a vital unifier laughter is for everyone regardless of ability or circumstance. I’m eternally grateful to our partner brands for helping us realise it, and thrilled by how much London has embraced the work of the Naked Heart Foundation in helping us raise crucial funds to develop family support services and inclusive play facilities for children of all ages and abilities.”
