Designers and high-street fashion favourites have launched exclusive products to raise funds during the upcoming Breast Cancer awareness month.

British department stores and fashion labels such as M&S, Debenhams, River Island, Topshop and Lola Rose have designed special pieces that contribute to a collection of accessories and clothing, which hits stores today as the world goes pink.

Stella McCartney unveiled the most feminine campaign featuring Kate Moss wearing the designer’s limited-edition lingerie collection in candy pink, the universal colour for breast cancer awareness. The worldwide proceeds will go the Linda McCartney Centre, a cancer patient clinic in Liverpool.

Every year, almost 50,000 women in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer. In efforts to tackle the disease, the charity has joined forces with UK retailers and shoppers to help out.

What better way to contribute then to combine a shopping trip with a charitable endeavour.

It’s the little things that make a difference. From jewellery to handbags and lingerie, here are 17 fashionable ways to support the cause this month:

If a spot of pampering is more you thing then look no further. In a special event for Breast Cancer Care Elemis are hosting an evening at the Elemis Day Spa in Mayfair. On Tuesday 28th October the salon will be serving pink bubbles and cupcakes plus customers will get 20% off their next treatment in November and products purchased that evening.

There will be a speaker from the charity explaining all its good work and attendees will receive a goody bag worth £50. Philanthropy and pampering combined!
