Kate Middleton's sister Pippa Middleton is now a dress designer. The 31-year-old has made her foray into the fashion world by launching her first collection with London-based designer Tabitha Webb. The pair has joined forces to create an exclusive summer dress and a matching scarf to help the British Heart Foundation, of which Middleton is an ambassador.
The limited edition dress, which can be seen here, has a pink floral print. According to Webb, it can be worn for a casual evening out and is also a perfect choice for a formal wear. “As an Ambassador for the British Heart Foundation, I wanted to do something different and exciting on behalf of this inspiring charity,” Middleton said in a statement.
Middleton has also come out with a matching scarf along with the dress. The younger sister to the Duchess of Cambridge has also modeled the dress and scarf. In the pictures, Middleton can be seen wearing the same dress with a short denim jacket while other pictures shows her wearing the scarf with dark blue jeans. She looks good in the pictures with her confident yet subtle smile for the camera. The Middleton-Webb designed dress is available on Webb's website for 295 pounds (U.S.$ 452) while the price of scarf is 95 pounds.
Apart from designing the dress for her charity, Middleton will also participate in the 40th annual bike ride from London to Brighton, England, on June 21. She plans to raise funds for her charity and also increase awareness of cardiovascular diseases. “I’m really looking forward to taking part in the London to Brighton Bike Ride this month and am thrilled I was able to collaborate with Tabitha on this project to help raise additional funds and awareness for the charity,” she said.
Webb earlier partnered with Australian singer Dannii Minogue and owns Project D with her, writes Vogue. In 2014, she also launched her brand on an Elizabeth Street boutique by her name. Web looked impressed with Middleton's effort as a designer and said that it was an “absolute pleasure” to work with her. She also called the floral dress a “perfect choice” for summers.
