We absolutely adore the customised Christmas jumpers by leading British fashion designers at The Village, Westfield London. But did you know that you could be in with a chance of winning your favourite?
14 fashion designers came together this year to each customise a gorgeous Christmas jumper. We just love the Christmas tree design by Sibling, pictured above!
Each jumper has been handknitted by Wool and the Gang’s British team, before being passed on to the designers to receive its glamorous special treatment. Once they were all ready, they were passed on to The Village, Westfield London, to form an incredible installation designed by artist Stuart Semple.

Best of all, anyone can win one of the jumpers in the auction. Instead of going to the highest bidder, they will be sold to the person with the lowest unique bid. So we can all afford to enter!
Just text the name of your chosen designer and your bid to 78484, and the lowest bid that is completely unique will win! Find out more on the Christmas Jumper Day website, here. Texts cost £1.50.

Wool and the Gang spoke of their enthusiasm for the project. Co-founder Jade Harwood said: “It was such a fantastic opportunity for Wool and the Gang to create the Designer Christmas Jumpers for Save the Children. All of the jumpers were hand-knitted by our Gang of UK knitters using British wool and then customised by the top British designers. We know the Great British public will get behind the auction as it’s for such a worthy cause.”

Meanwhile, CEO of the British Fashion Council Caroline Rush commented: “The overwhelming response from the designers pays tribute to the importance of the incredible work Save the Children is doing in some of the world’s most poverty-stricken countries. It’s a fantastic way to engage the public and we are delighted that our British fashion industry has come together to raise some serious money for this serious cause. We are urging everyone to make a bid and make a difference and look forward to seeing all the jumpers out in force on the 13th December.”
Remember, Christmas Jumper Day is next Friday (13th December) so make sure you register for the event here and get your school or office involved!
