 Bella is an incredible designer, and a dear friend of mine, and it was great fun creating the exclusive festive jumper with her. The fact that Save the Children’s work helps children around the world is amazing and, with the other models and designers, we’re proving that fashion really can save lives. Kate Moss

 “I’m so proud to be a part of the campaign, not only because my family has supported Save the Children’s work for many years but, because I’m so passionate about the cause and want to do all I can to stop children dying needlessly [– especially after my recent visit to the DRC]. The jumper is beautiful and I’d encourage everyone to buy one.” Poppy Delevingne

“I’m honoured to be working with Save the Children for their Fashion Saves Lives campaign this Christmas as it’s such a great cause, and being able to help children all around the world is so important at this time of year. Poppy is a great role model and ambassador for the charity. The design was inspired from my AW08 collection. The palette embroidery makes it the perfect Christmas jumper.” Christopher Kane

“I’ve seen Save the Children’s work first hand and every time I meet a child they’ve helped, it inspires me to continue supporting their vital work. I’ve enjoyed every minute of working with our Giles for this campaign and love the jumper he’s designed, so please just make sure you go out and buy one this Christmas.” Erin O’Connor 

 “It’s been great fun to work with my gorgeous friend Erin on the Save the Children’s Fashion Saves Lives campaign. We’re both huge supporters of the charity’s work and urge everyone to help give children a brighter future this Christmas by donating or purchasing a jumper.”Giles Deacon 

These stylish jumpers will be hosted on savethechildren.org.uk/fashionsaveslives.
