' Harper's Bazzar Editor Lucy Yeomans Honoured for Charity Work '
Lucy Yeomans, who edits the UK’s leading fashion magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, has been honoured at a special gala event held by Women for Women International, a charity which helps traumatised women from war-torn areas to rebuild their lives.


Alongside retail legend Joan Burstein of Browns, musician Annie Lennox and Todd Fisher from KRR, Lucy Yeomans was honoured for her support of the charity at the Women for Women Making a Difference Awards gala at Banqueting House.

Lucy, Deputy Editor Sarah Bailey and the Harper’s Bazaar team were described by Women for Women as producing a ‘sophisticated, elegant and stylish magazine with a big heart.” Lucy met Women for Women Founder, Zainab Badawi, at a dinner in New York in 2009 and built a relationship that has seen Harper’s Bazaar support the charity through various fashion-related events.

Most recently, Harper’s Bazaar, in partnership with London fashion boutique Browns, bought together some of Italy’s top female designers to create a range of ‘must have’ limited edition T-shirts in aid of Women for Women. Last year, the brand worked with UK designers on a similar project.

The event at Banqueting Hall raised more than £820,000, and attracted a wide host of celebrity guests including designer Alice Temperley, supermodel Natalia Vodianova, actress Rosamund Pike and singer Sophie Ellie-Bextor.

Women for Women founder, Zainab Salbi said: "It was always my dream to build Women for Women International in the UK, and the support of Annie Lennox, Joan Burstein, Lucy Yeomans, Todd Fisher and many other inspirational people has make this possible."

Kate Nustedt, Executive Director for Women for Women says: “Our partnership with Bazaar has helped us significantly to raise awareness of Women for Women International amongst its influential franchisees. The highly successful t-shirt campaign has resulted not only in worldwide coverage of Women for Women International but has also raised significant funds.”

Harper’s Bazaar Editor Lucy Yeomans says: “I am honoured to have received this award. Women for Women  does incredible work around the world and I am proud that Harper’s Bazaar, with its global reach and strong connections, has been able to help raise the profile of the charity through editorial, PR and events.”
Congratulations!!
