NEWS| Peter Pilotto takes part in Westfield's 5th Birthday Collaboration

To celebrate Westfield's five birthday, five acclaimed London Fashion Week designers have designed a capsule collection of sweatshirts exclusively for Westfield London. The collaboration sees Louise Gray, Richard Nicoll, Sophia Webster, Thomas Tait and former Fashion Scout star Peter Pilotto create a one-off sweatshirt that fuses each designer's iconic style with 'Westfield London'. 

The limited edition jumpers are £65 each and are on sale from 30th October to 3rd November (or until the sell out - so get one whilst you can!) at Westfield London's Pop-up Shop and all sales proceeds go to Westfield's charity partner Save the Children. 

Fashion Scout alumnus Peter Pilotto and his partner Christopher De Vos were interviewed on the opportunity (see video above): “Sweatshirts are the most versatile of garments and having the opportunity to apply a print to a blank canvas, to create an accessible fashion must-have, was exciting. Designing this product exclusively for Westfield London has been great fun and it is fantastic that all proceeds are going directly to Save the Children"
