Money raised will go towards helping disadvantaged people in London.

Gilligan believes the charity is a great example of the powerful helping the disenfranchised, and could serve as an inspiration for others.

Speaking outside the event at the British Museum, he said: “It’s really important. This is high-end fashion, some of the most important people in the world are going to help some of the most disadvantaged people in the world.

“It’s going to help people that thought they were forgotten about.”

He added: “There’s a lot of people here that are from that background. It’s very empowering. It lets a lot of people know that you could be here one day.”

Famous faces from the world of fashion were in attendance at the event in the capital, with Campbell herself making an appearance on the red carpet.
