The British Heart Foundation (BHF) in Sidcup recently received a donation of 100 new designer wedding dresses. The gowns were donated by Adrian Chapman, who donated them in memory of his friend and business partner. The Malaysian designer Steven Sin passed away very suddenly after having a heart attack. Steven spent a year designing and creating each of the one hundred one-of-a-kind dresses. He had planned to enter the bridal wear market but unfortunately passed away in April 2022, before they could be sold. 

The dresses were sold at a BHF wedding fair in Sidcup on Thursday evening, and the money raised will help the 7.6 million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory disease.

Sally Todd, BHF shop manager, says, “When we saw the dresses, we were completely shocked. They are absolutely stunning, and we’re so grateful for Adrian’s very kind donation. They are completely one-of-a kind. The Sidcup team has worked so hard to get the venue ready for the wedding fair to sell these incredible dresses. It’s been a real collaboration with local businesses, and we’ve managed to create a real buzz.”
