WHERE THE WILD THINGS WERE
Guests such as Ben Fogle and Miranda Richardson noshed on catered bites by Kofler and Kompanie, knocked back flutes of champagne, and watched an open-air catwalk show. The event culminated in a silent auction that raised funds for WWF’s ongoing efforts to protect wildlife habitats and their denizens. Many of the artworks will also go on display later this year at a public exhibition.

“WWF’s Pandamonium 2012 was a huge success with artists creating the most striking works,” says Georgie Bridge, head of design at WWF U.K. “We’re thrilled at the range of creative interpretations of environmental issues our planet faces, and how they were made more expressive and engaging through art.”
Pandamonium wasn’t the first time WWF used art to draw attention to environmental issues. In 2009, artists such as Tracey Emin and Jason Bruges reimagined WWF’s Panda collection boxes as a series of 16 art installations that were on view at Selfridges. The designs likewise went under the hammer, fetching more than £100,000 for the organization.
