Fashion: Going Gaga for Japan

IT might be out of the headlines, but Japan isn't out of our hearts – Japanese über-store Uniqlo is raising money for the earthquake-relief effort by selling charity T-shirts, in collaboration with Vogue and a number of celebrities and designers. One, created by Victoria Beckham, reads "Sending love and hope"; another by Lady Gaga is scrawled with Japanese characters (below). The brand plans to donate £750,000 through sales of the tees, which come in at £12.99 each. uniqlo.com
