Ethical fashion label Beulah use a portion of their profits to help victims of India’s sex trafficking trade. Kate’s helped to raise awareness of the brand and their work, wearing a few of their loose and lightweight dresses when she’s on tours in hot climates.
“She’s a wonderful ambassador for British fashion and her support definitely raises awareness and recognition of the brand,” Natasha Rufus Isaacs, co-founder of ethical fashion label Beulah told us. “A few of the press picked up on the charity angle on our business, that we help vulnerable and trafficked women and provide an alternative, sustainable livelihood. Raising awareness and funds for the cause is the heart of what we do here at Beulah.”

What do you love most about your job?
I love the pressure and pace of live TV and so enjoy being in the thick of breaking news stories. It keeps me on my toes!
Which female is your greatest inspiration?
Dame Kelly Holmes- against all odds at 34, she won double gold in Barcelona at the end of her career. She is such a down to earth woman and an incredible role model of hard work and determination.
What’s the greatest hurdle you have overcome?
Rowing the Atlantic!! Whilst the physical feat was a huge challenge, the mental battle way harder.
Where did you first hear about human trafficking?
I watched the film Taken and, to be honest, I thought it was just a film and that trafficking didn’t really happen. Then at a church conference a couple of months later, it totally clicked that it was so very real!
Why did you help set up Sport For Freedom and what’s your vision for the charity?
I was completely overwhelmed by the existence and the severity of human trafficking - I looked at what was in my hands, which was sport, and I used it! My ultimate vision for Sport For Freedom is that we cease to exist because there will be no more slavery.
Which beauty product can you not live without?
Bobbi Brown shimmer brick!
How do you keep a healthy balanced lifestyle?
I fail miserably…but I try to shop at the farmers market and I also try to schedule workouts a week in advance to make sure they are a priority in my diary.
What could you not live without?
Who are your style icons?
Jessica Alba; classic, beautiful and elegant.
If you could dress in any fashion era which would it be?
Now- I think it has never been so fun!
What’s the most memorable event you have worn Beulah to?
Apart from Natasha’s wedding…A big fundraising dinner for Sport for Freedom in London packed with sports stars supporting FREEDOM!
What do you think makes Beulah stand out?
The designs and quality of the dresses are just breathtaking- you can almost feel the presence of a Beulah in a room! I also love the cause each item of clothing stands for in supporting victims human trafficking.

In honour of the UN’s first ever World Day against Trafficking in Persons TODAY, the UNODC - United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has launched a new social media campaign #igivehope
The campaign encourages people across the globe to express their solidarity with the millions affected by this crime. By using - and sharing online – the universally recognized hand heart (which represents love, care and friendship), the idea is to offer people a way to symbolically give back what victims of human trafficking had stolen from them: hope.
Beulah is proud to support the the UN campaign through the sale of our blue heart accessories and encourages you to get involved today!
Sign up for the World Day Thurnderclap here and amplify the #igivehope campaign to create one major show of solidarity with victims of human trafficking
