Pippa Middleton designs for charity

Pippa Middleton has designed a dress and scarf with Tabitha Webb for charity.

The stylish Brit was thrust into the fashion spotlight when she took on bridesmaid duties for her sister, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's, 2011 wedding to Prince William. Many lusted after her white, cowl-neck dress, which featured button detailing on the back that highlighted her derrière.

Now Pippa is turning her hand to design, working with Tabitha to create a limited edition dress and scarf with profits going towards her British Heart Foundation's London to Brighton Bike Ride.

"As an Ambassador for the British Heart Foundation, I wanted to do something different and exciting on behalf of this inspiring charity. I'm really looking forward to taking part in the London to Brighton Bike Ride this month and am thrilled I was able to collaborate with Tabitha on this project to help raise additional funds and awareness for the charity," Pippa explained, reports British newspaper the Telegraph.

Pippa, 31, will partake in the bike race on June 21.

Tabitha, who launched her label in 2013 and counts Miranda Kerr as a fan, has long been a favourite of Pippa's and jumped at the chance to work with her on the summery dress, which features a pink and red bloom design.

"I'm really honoured to be a part of such an amazing project. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Pippa throughout the designing process and we are delighted with the outcome," Tabitha smiled.

"The dress is perfect for the summer - either worn with a denim jacket and pumps for a casual look or dressed up with heels for a special occasion."
