Billie Piper joins stars to help design charity clothing range
Former Doctor Who companion Billie Piper is amongst a number of high-profile celebrities to have designed exclusive clothing for the fashion label Scamp & Dude’s We’ve Got Your Back charity campaign.
Piper, who played Rose Tyler regularly in the BBC science fiction series between 2005 and 2006, and also has a second season of her hit comedy-drama I Hate Suzie arriving on Sky this December, designed a sweatshirt for the campaign which has also been supported by Line of Duty star Vicky McClure, All Saints singer Shaznay Lewis and singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor.
The profits from Billie Piper’s sweatshirt design will be donated to her chosen charity, Refuge.
Speaking about her experience, Piper said: “I am a huge fan of Scamp & Dude, and all the charitable work Jo has done since setting up the brand 6 years ago. It was an honour when she asked me to be part of the ‘We’ve Got Your Back’ campaign. Jo listened to what I wanted in my design and we worked together in creating this beautiful sweatshirt that I know I will be wearing all season; it’s SO soft.”
She added: “What’s even better is that profits from the collection will be going to some incredible charities. I’ve chosen Refuge, as it’s a charity I have been closely working with for the last couple of years to help raise money to support women and their children. It’s a brilliant charity that does the most phenomenal and vital work, supporting survivors of domestic abuse, so I urge you to get your hands on one and support too.”
You can buy the sweatshirt designed by Billie Piper on the Scamp & Dude website, priced at £58.
On the site, you can also browse and purchase Shaznay Lewis’s leopard print hoodie with the profits going to WONDER Foundation, Vicky McClure’s khaki t-shirt which supports the Our Dementia Choir Sophie Ellis Bextor’s 70s-inspired sweatshirt which benefits the charity Refuge every time a sale is made.
Jo Tutchener-Sharp, Scamp & Dude’s Founder said; “Seeing this campaign come to life has been an amazing experience for me, I have absolutely loved working with Sophie, Billie, Shaznay and Vicky on all their designs. Giving back is a key part to Scamp & Dude’s ethos, so I’m thrilled that we are donating profits from the ‘We’ve Got Your Back’ collection to these four fantastic charities.
“After the huge success of our ‘Swag bags with Purpose’ in 2019, I knew I wanted to develop this concept and create a similar campaign but include clothing; it was the most natural transition. Like ‘Swag Bags with Purpose’, it was important to work with collaborators who
have all been part of the Scamp & Jude journey with me so that this collection felt authentic. I really admire these brilliant women. What Billie, Shaznay, Sophie and Vicky do and what they have each achieved over the years, have inspired me in many ways. They also each have a unique style which I knew would translate into their Scamp & Dude designs.”
