Didn't Lea Anderson (Cholmondeleys, Featherstonehaughs) do a dance project for a fashion show a couple of years ago? I think I've heard of it being done more recently as well; I'm sure there was some national media coverage.

There was a recent Place benefit event which took place at the Saatchi Gallery in north London, and involved choreographers such as Mark Baldwin, Lea Anderson and Javier de Frutos being commissioned to make short solo dances in which the artists wore/modelled clothes by leading fashion designers. It seems to have been very successful and did attract high profile media coverage for both the event and The Place itself.
