Karl Lagerfeld, Diane von Furstenberg, Henry Holland, Anya Hindmarch and Matthew Williamson have each created a bespoke T-shirt design for us - and they are on sale at TK Maxx stores nationwide from today.
Prices start at £5.99 for a kids and £9.99 for adult T-shirts and 100% of the net profits from the sales go to Comic Relief, supporting projects to end extreme poverty worldwide.
‘I am so proud to be a part of Comic Relief and the Red Nose Day campaign,’ says Diane von Furstenberg. ‘It is a privilege to use my voice to support this incredible organisation.’
Says Henry Holland: ‘I’m really honoured to be a part of such an amazing campaign. It’s such a worthwhile cause and just to be playing a small part is raising money is extremely rewarding.’
‘The tireless and very brilliant efforts of the team at Comic Relief are incredibly inspiring, says Anya Hindmarch said. ‘To be a part of the 2015 campaign and support such a wonderful cause is an honour. And quite frankly, fun!’
‘I am proud to be a part of the Red Nose Day campaign this year, it is such an important initiative which gives aid to people with unimaginably difficult lives across the UK and Africa,’ says Matthew Williamson It is an honor to design a T-Shirt that I hope will help raise a smile and some much needed funds to improve conditions and create lasting change for those who need it most.’
Adds Lorraine Candy, ELLE UK’s Editor-in-Chief: ‘I’ve grown up with Comic Relief and never miss Red Nose Day. It’s very close to mine and my family’s hearts.
‘This year, Comic Relief will hopefully hit the mark of £1bn raised so far. It is also launching in the US for the first time – so it’s a landmark campaign, and I’m so pleased I can use my role at ELLE to offer support for such a worthy, respected and enduring cause.’
As well as recruiting our designer friends for the cause, we’ve also shot five special celebrity covers, each featuring one of the Ts, which will be exclusively available to buy at TK Maxx from Thursday, 29 January.
