Shaanti: University of Manchester students for The Prince's Trust

Fashion has always loved charity but it isn't often that you see charity loving fashion back.

Well, that was until Shaanti, a collective of students from the University of Manchester (Big up UM!), who have joined forced with comedian Doc Brown and designers Bethan Buss and Sophie Cull-Candy to create three limited edition t-shirts, on sale for just 24 hours to benefit The Prince Trust. The initiative hopes to raise as much money as possible for the charity in just 24 hours!

The tees, kindly supplied by Next, feature graphic designs on the front, each inspired by India, and so make for the perfect SS13 buy for wearing on Indian summer eves. Bliss.

Doc Martin, a former beneficiary of The Prince's Trust, said: "when I first started out as a rapper, as part of an initiative for disadvantaged young artists, The Prince's Trust gave me the opportunity to perform at Earls Court on the same bill as Jay Z and Will Smith. It was the first time I remember thinking, 'anything is possible'."

You can buy the t-shirts for 24 hours only on the 23rd of April 2013 from here
