Arlene Phillips attends NTAs in a ‘living’ dress
Strictly Come Dancing star Arlene Phillips walked the red carpet last night at the National Television Awards wearing a “living” dress decorated with real flowers that are all used for homeopathic remedies, including Clematis, Hydrangea and others.
Arlene is lending her support to a campaign launched by the collaboration 4Homeopathy which includes eleven homeopathic charities and associations, including the Society of Homeopaths. The campaign aims to raise awareness of homeopathy and the organisations’, useful and informative website, www.findahomeopath.org/
The dress was the inspiration of award-winning florist (five consecutive RHS Gold Medals and four Best in Show awards from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show) Joseph Massie. Months of work have gone into designing and making the dress, with Massie and his team spending over 100 hours painstakingly sowing each petal onto the fabric.
Arlene uses homeopathy to aid digestion and to help keep her stomach healthy. She commented, “I’m passionate about being 100% naturally healthy. I was first introduced to homeopathy six years or so ago. After visiting a homeopath I noticed huge differences and have never looked back.”
The 4Homeopathy campaign highlights the need for greater integration of homeopathy into everyday healthcare, and to raise public awareness. For more information visit www.findahomeopath.org/
Society Chief Executive, Mark Taylor, said: “This is part of a much wider campaign over the next few months promoting homeopathy and its benefits. This will include a new app, digital marketing and political lobbying. It was good to start this off with a slice of show business which featured on TV and in the newspapers.
Hopefully our campaign will encourage others to join Arlene and the millions of people across the globe who have made homeopathy an indispensable part of their approach to healthcare.”
