The Be Well Collective Panel 2019

Claridge's, london


The Be Well Collective is a charitable initiative that aims to bring nutritional education and mental health coaching to the world of fashion models.

The women and men of the fashion world represent society’s aesthetic paradigm yet off camera often face the greatest body consciousness, self-esteem and stress related issues.


“This is all about knowledge. If you have that knowledge you can implement it.

sarah ann macklin, founder


After a nutritionally-balanced breakfast, guests assembled for a wellness-themed panel discussion, featuring Lisa Armstrong (fashion editor of The Daily Telegraph), Dr Nerina Ramalakhan, (renowned sleep therapist and author), Luke Worthington (Nike trainer and elite master trainer for the Third Space Group), Howard Napper (stress expert and author) Anita Bhagwandas (former editor of Women’s Health and Marie Claire), and Jillian Lavender (founder of The London Meditation Centre). 

Following the discussion, guests put questions to panelists based on all-manner of topics from nutrition, to fitness and mental health.

“The Be Well Collective was a fantastic event that was really informative and helpful for personal wellbeing.

Mia Wells, Phoenix


All guests left with a Be Well Collective Survival Kit - tools to help them manage the next four weeks of fashion, including mental health charity support information, nutrition guides, relaxation remedy rolls, mediation tips, sleep booklets and restaurant vouchers for free meals and snacks. 

The more we talk about our physical and mental health, the more positive changes we make to society at large. I hope one day the Be Well Collective finds its way beyond the catwalk, into schools, the workplace and more.
