Renowned fashion and portrait photographer Rankin creates exclusive aprons for official Red Nose Day partner Homesense in aid of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day which is on the 24th March.
HomeSense has partnered with renowned fashion and portrait photographer Rankin to create exclusive aprons for Red Nose Day 2017. With all the ingredients to become a design classic, the apron features a selection of unique, quirky and quintessentially British animal portraits including Rankin’s own dog. HomeSense is an official Red Nose Day partner for the third time and this year a host of celebrities have been photographed by iconic photographer Rankin wearing the apron to help raise money for Comic Relief. The campaign is being fronted by the Hairy Bikers, Si King and Dave Myers. The bikers will be supported by a whole host of celebrities including The Hemsley Sisters, Ella Mills, Nadine Coyle, Lesley Joseph, Linda Robson, Fay Ripley, Vogue Williams and Tim Lovejoy, to name but a few.
The adult apron, priced at £12.99, will be available to buy in HomeSense and TK Maxx stores from 13th February and online from 1st February at tkmaxx.com and rednoseday.com. With at least £5 from every adult apron sale going to Comic Relief, the money will help people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and across Africa.
The HomeSense Red Nose Day range, created by Rankin, also features a new children’s apron encouraging the whole family to join in the bake sale action by getting creative in the kitchen. Further products in the collection include a tea towel, also designed by Rankin, as well as a leather journal and a colouring-in notebook. A spokesperson for HomeSense said: “Rankin has really risen to the challenge with this year’s apron design, encouraging adults and children to get in the kitchen and make their bakes matter.
The quirky and unique design featuring an image of man’s best friend (Rankin’s own dog) and a range of other animals, will encourage people to grab an apron, get messy in the kitchen and support the good work that Comic Relief does to help transform people’s lives here in the UK where we have customers and stores and across Africa.”
Rankin said: “When I was asked to create this year’s Red Nose Day exclusive collection for HomeSense I agreed without hesitation. It is a fantastic cause and I knew it would be a lot of fun. What you’re seeing is some of the best talent in the animal business and, although I’m never one for nepotism, my own dog got on the team sheet. I wanted to make these images as cute and fun as possible and I hope I have included something for everyone which encourages both adults and children to get in the kitchen and raise some dough for Comic Relief.”
Michele Settle, Director, UK Campaigns & Brands at Comic Relief said: “Baking is one of the most popular Red Nose Day fundraising activities across the UK and this exclusive apron by Rankin enables you to look stylish in the kitchen and raise money too. So make your bake matter for Red Nose Day 2017.”
