Designer flags up big charity event

Linzi Stoppard, wearing a dress designed by Jasper Conran made of Union flags, meets a horse from the Household Cavalry in Hyde Park, London.

The musician and model – who is married to the son of playwright Sir Tom Stoppard – was launching a Fashion for the Brave event when some of the biggest names in British fashion will be supporting the nation's war veterans with a 1,000-a-ticket fashion show at London's Dorchester Hotel.

The event on October 26 will benefit three veterans' charities – the Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund, Help for Heroes and ABF The Soldiers Charity – at a glamorous black tie gala.
