Celebrating Flavour, Flair, and Fashion for their 25th anniversary, the Heart Foundation's Simply Red created a culinary showcase of delectable goodness all wrapped up in one night for those in attendance to indulge and savour.

The four-hour event saw food aficionados and first-timers coming out in fine fashion to support the charitable event on the lawns of Jamaica House. Most conformed to the designated dress code, while others broke the rules, stepping outside the scope of red and substituting it with other bold colours and patterns.

The fashion highlight of the evening came from Campari's Mission Catwalk Season Four booth, which boasted Campari-inspired designs of elegant red from contestants on the new reality TV series. At the end of the night, three of the designers on show walked away with prizes for their designs, selected by the Campari panel of judges. One lucky patron received a surprise for epitomising the true essence of Campari.

In true Simply Red fashion, the funds raised from the event were given to the Heart Foundation's Cardiac Rehabilitation & Research Centre as well as the expansion of their Emergency Cardiac Care programme.
