Rockcoco Fans stunning are donating 10% of all proceeds raised to the Lord Mayor’s Appeal until the end of December 2018.
The Lady Mayoress, Samantha Bowman, said:
“The world, the UK and our City are changing fast; this is having a direct impact on the challenges facing society. The Lord Mayor’s Appeal has the potential to benefit over one million people. The primary aim is to have a transformational impact on those people’s lives by bringing together City businesses, neighbouring communities, employees and charities to find solutions to some of London’s most pressing social issues. Consequently, I strongly endorse this magnificent initiative taken by Rockcoco Fine Fans in conjunction with the Worshipful Company of Fan Makers.”
Rockcoco Fine Fans offers three elegant collections: Bespoke; Bridal & Occasion-Wear; and Ready-to-Wear. The fans incorporate only the finest materials, including silk, Chantilly lace, wood and mother of pearl and, if desired, precious or semi-precious gem stones, which can be set in white, yellow and rose gold, silver or platinum. Fabrics are sourced from Joel & Son Fabrics London, a heritage company under Royal Warrant. Rockcoco Fine Fans, established in 2014 by two sisters, Denise Frankel and Janis Sher, is the first ladies’ hand fan producer to commence business within the boundaries of the Worshipful Company of Fan Makers - “20 miles round the Cities of London and Westminster” - for over 100 years.
The Master Fan Maker 2018/19 and Chairman of Rockcoco Fine Fans, Dr Michael Smith, said:
“The Lord Mayor’s Appeal, which embraces so many aspects of London life is, in true Livery tradition, a superb opportunity to really make a difference to our Community. Rockcoco Fine Fans and the Worshipful Company of Fan Makers are proud to be associated with the Appeal and, with your help, will make what we hope will be a most meaningful contribution.”
