Friday night in London and we took our seats in the Savoy's famous mirrored ballroom for The VIN + OMI AW20 catwalk show, ready to check out the models' feet as Po-Zu had provided the men's sneakers for the runway spectacular.
Models included television presenter Anita Rani, Rock and Roll's Jo Wood (a Po-Zu shoes ambassador), body-positive champion Honey Ross (daughter of Jonathan Ross) who were walking in the show alongside rapper Lady Leshurr, Olympians, British Boxing champion Richard Riakporphe, Hannah Moore Guardian Journalist, and 2017 Mr Universe Josh Maley.
Po-Zu founder Sven Segal writes: "In contrast to the core theme “RESIST”, it's been an uplifting experience sitting through Vin + Omi AW20 highly inspiring catwalk at the Savoy on Valentine’s night, and we were delighted to spot Po-Zu sneakers on the models’ feet too.
Filled with po-zutivity, the upbeat party-like #LFW show felt like a joyous celebration of creativity, humanity and diversity, whilst pushing the boundaries of sustainability.
Weaving garments from dead hydrangea heads, to waste plastic bottles collected during a Brighton beach clean. The Vin + Omi catwalk AW20 also featured hand-picked stinging nettles from Prince Charles’ Highgrove estate shows just how wildly creative and versatile sustainable development can be."
