'Style for Stroke' - Nick Ede's Collection for Little Mistress @ The Cavendish Sq! Xx

On Tuesday 2nd October, 
we went to The Cavendish Sq
for the Glamorous Launch of Nick Ede 
and Little Mistress 'Lovely Black Dress'
Collection for the Stroke Association. 

This year Nick has designed a collection of 
8 little black dresses for Little Mistress
it is hoped that his innovative take on the 
LBD will help raise thousands of pounds, 
with 15% of profits from each sale 
being donated to the Stroke Association charity.

Guests enjoyed entertainment by 
Jodie Harsh, champagne by Nicholas Feuillatte, 
Edgerton gin cocktails and ate canapés 
including scallops and arancini balls.

Nick Ede, founder of the ‘Style for Stroke’ 
campaign says: ‘Having lost my mother to stroke;
 it is a subject very close to my heart and 
I have been a long supporter of Stroke Association. 
I feel privileged to be able to design this collection 
along with Little Mistress as I feel it helps to 
appeal to a younger audience and get a 
serious message out that stroke can affect anyone of any age.’

The aim of Style for Stroke is to reach out to 
new audiences and raise much needed awareness 
about stroke especially amongst the UK’s younger generations. 
22 year old stroke survivor Becki Cobb, 
along with fellow stroke survivors 20 year 
old Sarah Scott from Hertfordshire, and 21 year old Becky Beaumont 
from Stockport will be helping to launch the dresses at an exclusive event. 
Becki says: “I think it’s brilliant that Nick 
and Little Mistress are using fashion to 
challenge some of the perceptions of stroke and Sarah, 
Becky and I are so excited to be a part of it. 
Until my stroke, 
I thought stroke was something that only 
happened to older people. 
But I am proof that strokes can happen to anyone at any age, 
I was 21 when I had my stroke.”

Jim Swindells, Director of fundraising at Stroke Association says: 
‘We are delighted that Nick and Little Mistress are 
launching this initiative in support of Stroke Association. 
We believe in life after stroke and the money raised 
will go a long way in helping us to support people 
to make the best recovery they can.’

The ‘Lovely Black Dress’ collection will be available exclusively 
on from October prices range £55-£75 
with profits from each sale going to Stroke Association.
