The Duchess's sister has collaborated with London designer Tabitha Webb to create a dress and scarf to raise money for The British Heart Foundation

Pippa Middleton has taken a novel approach to fundraising for her latest charitable mission; she's turned her hand to fashion design.

The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge has teamed up with established designer Tabitha Webb to design a limited edition dress and scarf, the profits from which will go towards her fundraising mission for the British Heart Foundation's London to Brighton Bike Ride on June 21, in which she will participate.

"As an Ambassador for the British Heart Foundation, I wanted to do something different and exciting on behalf of this inspiring charity," said Middleton. "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."

The summery silk tea dress, which features a pink and red floral print, costs 295, while the matching lightweight scarf will set you back 95. Both are available at, as well as at Webb's Elizabeth Street, London, SW1 store.

"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," said Webb. "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."
