4. Lulu Guinness: The designer has designed a limited-edition Lulu Guinness brooch to increase awareness of HIV. The ribbon, which has an antique gold trim, even features her signature red lips. On this collaboration, the designer has said: “I was delighted to get the opportunity to be involved in designing such an integral symbol for the charity. I hand drew the design and wanted to make sure that was portrayed in the design, to give it a bit of a flourish. I feel honoured to be involved with such a wonderful charity in my 25th year of design and my main aim is to help lift the stigma and raise awareness through my involvement, whilst ensuring the spotlight is on the charity and all it is doing to help fight the cause!”
