    AFRICA’S TOP LIFESTYLE MAGAZINE ‘GLAM AFRICA’ TO SELL BRITISH DESIGNER DRESSES DEDICATED TO ‘CECIL THE LION’ AND SINGER ‘PRINCE’ TO RAISE FUNDS FOR UK CHARITY


    AN AUCTION BALL ORGANISED BY GLAM AFRICA MAGAZINE, AFRICA’S TOP STYLE VOICE, WILL SEE TWO STUNNING DRESSES LINKED TO “KINGS OF THE JUNGLE” – PRINCE AND CECIL THE LION – SOLD OFF TO BENEFIT THE ALETO FOUNDATION IN LONDON ON SEPTEMBER 20TH AT THE RAC CLUB.

    The Aleto Foundation matches young students of disadvantaged backgrounds with successful mentors in the UK to open doors for them and to assist them in achieving senior positions in business.




    Auctioneer for the GLAM AFRICA event is Giles Peppiatt, Head of Contemporary African Art at Bonhams, the international fine art auction house. He comments: “These remarkable dresses will doubtless attract a lot of keen bidding given the designer and the cause they will aid and the reason they were created, a tribute to an African lion hunted for pleasure, and a lion of the music industry, Prince who died much too young.”

    Mary Martin who designed the two dresses heads one of London’s leading edge fashion brands, best known for her outrageous, bespoke, creative designs. She emerged on the fashion scene in the late 90’s. Mary explained that when she heard that Cecil the Zimbabwean lion had been shot by an American who hunted for pleasure, she decided to make the dress in black out of mourning for Cecil. She made the dress by hand and said that since learning of Cecil’s death she had worked day and night to complete the dress made originally for London Fashion Week.

    A similar feeling of huge loss inspired Martin to create a purple-feathered dress for Purple Rain singer Prince. Prince died from a fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park recording studio and home in Chanhassen, Minnesota, on April 21, 2016, at the age of 57. It's now been more than a year since his passing. He sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. He won seven Grammy Awards, an American Music Award, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award for the film Purple Rain.

    The pre-sale estimate for each of the dresses is £5,000.

    Ms Chioma Onwutalobi, CEO and Publisher of Glam Africa, says: We support the Aleto Foundation as its work is crucial to the upliftment and support of the youth in this country. These young people are our future, what could be more valuable than seeing them realizing their potential and succeeding.




    Making them and us proud of Africa’s contribution to the UK. We are in the business of showing off the best of Africa and through that building a community of supporters here in London. This event allows us to assist in the upliftment of youngsters who sometimes struggle in an environment that is not of their own birth culture but who given a chance have much to contribute.”

    Glam Africa is a multimedia company with operations in the UK as well as Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. Its platforms include a quarterly print magazine, TV show and events for its supporters.

    Other stunning lots in the GLAM auction include:

  • A 3 day ‘Lady Tatiana of London’ yacht charter courtesy of White Star Charter

  • A £3,000 suit from Fielding and Nicholson

    Celebrity wardrobe stylist, Julian R. Lark as he tackles his daily duties as a serial entrepreneur. Provides essential must haves and trends for Summer 2016.


    Julian R. Lark


    About Julian R. Lark:

    Since his arrival on the Atlanta fashion scene, Julian Lark has ascended from premature stylist to fashion and branding guru. Having only premiered a mere six years ago, Julian has since launched a brand that's catapulted him to the forefront of the urban celebrity fashion scene. Through his perseverance and personal achievements as the Editor-in-Chief of Kontrol Magazine, the celebrated stylist has been a key player in the development of the Atlanta fashion movement, that has taken a significant role in transforming the city and cementing its place on the map as one of the capitals of American fashion and entertainment.

    Julian's commitment to quality, eye for detail and awareness of the fashion haut monde, has afforded him continued success in an industry known for its fickle attributes and ever changing forecast. Because of these things, it should come as no surprise that entertainment luminaries Toni Braxton, K. Michelle, Cynthia Bailey, Nick Cannon, Tamar Braxton, and Sanaa Lathan are only a few of the A-list names that make up a long list of Julian's loyal celebrity clientele.

    Through Kontrol Magazine, Julian infuses the talents of celebrities, underground photographers, writers, musicians, and models to create a new and refreshing perspective on current fashion trends and entertainment news. Readers across the nation have taken notice of Julian’s ever evolving vision and ability to differentiate Kontrol Magazine from other editorials with similar target audiences.

    Since its 2009 inception, Kontrol has since birthed two other celebrated editorials, further affirming Julian's credibility as a stylist and leading force within the contemporary fashion landscape. Built on the creative foundations of fashion, beauty and entertainment, Kontrol Girl and Kontrol Homme, address various fashion and lifestyle related topics that other editorials have missed. With these platforms, Julian continues his mission to develop not only stimulating and enriching content, but to cultivate a conscious and stylishly aware readership of all ages.
