By Collette Lyons

With the G8 summit now in session in London, Enough Food for Everyone is highlighting the issue of global hunger. In an event in London’s Hyde Park on Saturday 8 June, a slew of celebrities including Rita Ora, David Beckham and Gemma Arterton pledged their support. Beckham said, "In the next few weeks, G8 leaders could decide the fate of millions of children around the world. I want them to stop the scandal of hunger."

British designers also showed their support, calling on people to wear their UK-made, 100% recyclable IF wristbands to raise cash for and consciousness of the campaign. Each of the high-profile fashion names was asked about the biggest ‘WHAT IF’ in their own personal lives…
