Snip of the price

Stella McCartney’s designed for H&M, Celia Birtwell for Topshop and John Rocha for Debenhams but now Gap are getting in on the designer fashion action with a Roland Mouret collection.

Mouret, who created the popular Galaxy dress joined model Lily Cole to publicise his collection, which will consist of 10 different dress styles that go on sale in the UK next week.

The collection is priced between £45 and £78 and the designs are said to incorporate Gap's "easy to wear" aesthetic.

The tunic and shirt-style dresses come in charcoal, black, dark navy, red and silver-grey colours.

Half of all profits from the three red coloured dress styles will go to the Global Fund to Fight Aids, TB and Malaria as part of the Red project, founded by Bono.

Roland Mouret said: "I was interested in the opportunity to make my designs available to a broader audience and was particularly excited about the (RED) involvement."
