Iconic British designer, Elizabeth Emanuel, teams up with TigerTime to protect wild tigers

  • May 16, 2017

The iconic British fashion designer Elizabeth Emanuel, who found fame as part of the design duo behind the ‘wedding dress of the century’ for Lady Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales, has turned her design talent to support the protection of wild tigers.

The stunning design, unique to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s TigerTime Campaign, forms part of Elizabeth’s Moulage Heritage Collections brand that incorporates 18th and early 19th century images embellished with historical fonts, flourishes and her own artwork.

Commenting on the partnership Elizabeth said: “Tigers are one of the world’s most loved animals and the thought of losing them – of people using their skins and body parts for adornments and ineffective medicines – breaks my heart. With as few as 3,500 left in the wild we have to work together to raise awareness and funds for their protection. This is what this exclusive t-shirt is designed to do.”

“Elizabeth has been supporting our work to save wild tigers since 2013 and we are thrilled to be collaborating with her on this exciting new fundraiser,” says TigerTime Campaign manager, Vicky Flynn.

The exclusive design is available on t-shirts, vests and sweatshirts for a limited period via online retailer Everpress until June 19.
