London’s Fabulous Fund Fair hosted by supermodel friends Natalia Vodianova, and Karlie Kloss took place last night at London’s Roundhouse. The annual fundraising gala saw the iconic London destination transformed into a vibrant funfair designed by artist Camille Walala complete with full size carousel all in aid of the Naked Heart Foundation, set up by Vodianova.
Supermodel commented: “I believe that giving should be a fabulous, fun and unforgettable experience; inspiring our supporters is a crucial part of Naked Heart Foundation’s philosophy in our work helping children with special needs and nothing is more inspiring than laughter and games – all the fun of the fair! Now in its third year, I’m thrilled that the Fabulous Fund Fair has become such an exciting and anticipated part of London’s social scene and certainly one of the most instagrammable charity events. I’m so grateful to all our sponsors, partners and guests who help us raise much-needed funds for Naked Heart Foundation’s family support services and accessible play facilities.”
