The Miss England Pageant Organisation is launching a recycled dress charity auction campaign with London fashion designer Karen Karmody
The Miss England Organisation is launching a recycled dress charity auction campaign with London fashion designer Karen Karmody to raise money for disadvantaged children. Alize Lily Mounter the current Miss England from Kensington, London is heading the campaign. Six Miss England outfits worn at the Miss England and Miss World finals will be auctioned.
Alize said “I am so proud to be launching this charity auction to raise money for underprivileged children, while promoting the importance of recycling and try and influence people to do more for their environment. Something as basic as recycling our dresses I hope will help in creating a better world for our children’s future. The beautiful white dress that I wore during Miss World 2011 is up for auction that was previously worn by two previous winners of Miss England; Katrina Hodge and Jessica Linley, so this
dress has already been recycled twice.”
Past Miss England winners will model the dresses at this years ECO FASHION SHOW at the Miss England final on the 26 th June, where the successful bids will be announced. The highest bid for an outfit will also receive dinner at Harry’s Bar 2 restaurant located in the City of London with Alize the current Miss England.

All money raised in the auction will all be donated to ‘Beauty with a Purpose’, the charity that helps disadvantaged children throughout the world. Since 2010, Miss England has raised over £250,000 for the Variety Club children’s charity.
