My fashionistas, March 13th was celebrated as the Red Nose Day. Like every year, Britons had geared up to put on their Noses, pull out all the stops, and get fundraising. Whether it’s at work, at school or at home, the money raised for Red Nose Day is spent by Comic Relief to transform the lives of millions of people, both at home in the UK and across Africa. And guess what! We all have helped raise a staggering £78,082,988 so far, this Red Nose Day! Five of world’s renowned designers have come together, teamed up with Elle Magazine and in collaboration with TK Maxx have produced the iconic Comic Relief T-shirts- the stylish charity t-shirts you will ever buy. Fashion royalty Anya Hindmarch, Henry Holland, Matthew Williamson, Diane von Furstenberg and Karl Lagerfeld (yes! King Karl!) have all generously donated their time and creativity to design an eclectic collection including seven very fashionably funny T-shirts and a onesie that I know all fashionistas will love. The money raised from these t- shirts will help poor and vulnerable people living incredibly tough lives both in the UK and in Africa. Each one features a playful quote, and the best part is they are on sale in TK Maxx stores around the UK, priced from £9.99 to £14.99.
To draw as much attention as possible to the cause, Elle magazine has also created five special celebrity covers to collect to celebrate Red Nose Day T-shirt project. I have got my copy of this issue from TK Maxx itself with Keira Knightley on the cover. They are on reduced price as well. Hurry up to get your hands on them!
Why Karl Lagerfeld’s design? Like Karl, I have not known how to play anyone but ME! If you copy others, you are restricting yourself, I reckon.
So, now it’s over to us- I did my part to help make a difference to the life-changing projects supported by comic relief, both here in the UK and around the world, by buying one of these tees- Yes! I got the one made by Chanel boss Karl Lagerfeld. Will you join me? I have shared the photos of other celebrities donning these T-shirts to get more style inspiration for you all. I chose to style mine with a long gypsy skirt instead of the common denim- tee combination look. To give this manly t-shirt a touch of femininity, I tied up on a tiny knot on the hemline and secured it with a vintage red crystal hair band cum wrist band. This was to make the length proportional plus a style statement is made! Let me know what you thought about the way I styled it. Please share and tag me in your photos if you contribute to the cause by buying one of these t-shirts and show me how you styled it.
