Freud said: “It was wonderful for me to get involved in this project and support War Child UK’s work.

“The charity turns 25 this year and to learn about the ways they help children overcome the trauma of war is truly inspiring.”

Hogg added: “It’s heart-breaking knowing hundreds of thousands of children’s lives have been shattered due to ongoing conflicts that show no sign of stopping.

“It’s imperative to show solidarity by supporting this cause, Wear It For War Child, and I urge everyone too.”

War Child UK chief executive Rob Williams said: “We’re incredibly honoured to work with a stellar line-up of fashion designers, and want to thank them for generously lending their time and support to help us raise the essential funds we need to continue our crucial work.
