Bottletop, the inspiring fashion charity hosted it's second annual fundraiser on 7th October in London.

The coolest fashion charity, Bottletop, held its second inspiring annual fundraiser in London last Thursday night to raise funds for grassroots education about HIV across the UK, Africa and South America.

The event brought together the leading lights in fashion, music and art to generate a staggering £125,000 for the charity, which will go towards helping prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and teenage pregnancy in countries from Brazil and Africa to the UK.

Colin Firth, Mariella Frostrup, and Tim Vincent were among guests on 7th October, treated to an exciting live auction of contemporary art by renowned artists such as Picasso, Banksy, Anthony Gormley, Antonio Girbes and Paul Noble.

The auction was followed by dinner and an acoustic live performance by soul diva Beverley Knight, pictured below with Bottletop founders Oliver Wayman and Cameron Saul.

Oliver Wayman and Cameron Saul with Beverley Knight - Marie Claire Bottletop was created in 2002 by Cameron Saul, the son of Mulberry founder Roger Saul, who discovered a wire frame handbag made from local bottle tops while working as a teacher in Uganda.

The unique bags, made entirely from bottle tops by women in Brazil are the ultimate feel good purchase, with every sale helping to support the poverty-stricken communities where they are made.

The inspiring fashion charity teaches young people around the world about teenage health issues, ranging from HIV/AIDS to teenage pregnancy, drug abuse and gender equality.

The bags have become a huge hit with fans ranging from Paris Hilton to Bill Clinton.
