Baking has always been a huge part of Red Nose Day. This year, to encourage everyone to have a go and get messy in the kitchen HomeSense has partnered with renowned fashion and portrait photographer Rankin to create a line of exclusive Red Nose Day aprons. With all the ingredients to become a design classic, the aprons feature a selection of unique, quirky and quintessentially British animal portraits including Rankin’s own dog.
“I wanted to make these images as cute and fun as possible,” Rankin says, “I hope I have included something for everyone which encourages both adults and children to get in the kitchen and raise some dough for Comic Relief.”
The iconic photographer has pictured a whole host of celebrities wearing the apron to help raise money for Comic Relief, with the campaign is being fronted by the Hairy Bikers, Si King and Dave Myers. The bikers will be supported by other famous faces including Nadiya Hussain, Una Healy, The Hemsley Sisters, Susanna Reid, Ella Mills, Tim Lovejoy and Kimberly Wyatt to name but a few.
The adult apron, priced at £12.99, will be available to buy in HomeSense stores from February 13. At least £5 from every adult apron sale will go direct to Comic Relief, helping people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and across Africa.
Other products available in the collection include a tea towel, also designed by Rankin, a leather journal and a colouring-in notebook.
So why not grab an apron, whip up some treats and have a bake sale. Easy as pie!
