Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Burberry and Versace bears cuddle up for Designer Pudsey 2012 Collection


What is common among 30 high-end brands and designers? No, we are not talking about shoes, bags or haute couture garments. Its a 24-inch Pudsey Bear for BBC Children In Need that has bought all these labels on one platform. The much awaited 2012 Designer Pudsey Collection has been unveiled and we can’t stop cooing over each of the teddies. Katie Grand, editor of Love magazine is the curator of this unique collection. Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Victoria Beckham, Prada, Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Versace and Paul Smith are just a few of the renowned names that have designed chic Pudsey bears. Each of them have shaped a bear by using a variety of fabrics in various colors along with Swarovski crystals in their iconic styles.
