The Evening

Black Tie

The Red Dress Couture Ball is a three part event:

1. THE EXCLUSIVE  DINNER – 18:00 hrs

Exclusive guests will be offered a unique dining experience featuring an innovative tasting menu of red themed culinary delights and fine red wines at the charming Cherwell Boathouse, Oxford.


Never before has such a roster of world-renowned designers joined together to produce one, single remarkable fashion show, held at Oxford’s beautiful Town Hall Building. Each designer will exhibit one red couture dress, as part of the show, and will thereby establish their support for these charities and their causes. This diverse collection of couture pieces will, in effect, represent the international solidarity that lies at the very heart of this event.

The show will be followed by an exciting live auction hosted by an internationally established auctioneer. Prizes will include selected gowns exhibited in the show, as well as other unique experiences and one-of-a-kind items.

100% of the proceeds from the auction will go directly to these organisations.

3. THE V.I.P. AFTER-PARTY – 21:30 hrs

Excited and enthralled by what will be a spectacular show, V.I.P. guests will then be escorted to the famed Divinity Schools in the Bodleian Library. They will be presented with an evening of champagne, exquisite canapés and lively entertainment in celebration of fashion and art, in support of H.E.L.P. and Teach a Man To Fish charities.
