Changing Lives And Staying Fashion Forward

We award our movie stars and music artists for all the hard work they have done, but we often forget to acknowledge the volunteers and young people who lend their hand to others all over the world. vInspried is the UK's leading youth volunteering charity. Their goal is to give young people with a desire to give back the opportunity to do so in anway that each want. The vInspired National Awards is the country's biggest celebration of young volunteers. Take a look at some of these outstanding people and their contributions. These are some of the finalists from the vInspired National Awards 2013 in Camden Roundhouse, London.

Eliza created the Lives not Knives project. The project aims to prevent gang related violence in Croydon by running road shows in over 60 primary and secondary schools.


Although this event was aimed at rewarding those individuals for their accomplishments and dedication in giving back to the community, I cannot disregard the amazing fashion at the celebration!

Below are few photos of those who came to support the Vinspired National Awards 2013 in style.

Sam Fryer and Billie JD are mixing their patterns so well. The pink shoe really completes this look (I am definitely stealing this).


These kids are truly an inspiration. Their work in the community is wonderful and they look great while doing it! To learn more about the vInspired National Awards and ways to make an impact click here or go to
