Theo Fennell will sponsor the Glorious Goodwood Magnolia Cup women’s charity race to celebrate the launch of his new 18ct gold Whip collection
The horse-racing event, which runs on Ladies’ Day (July 31) at the Chichester venue, will raise money for Best Beginnings and The Haven. Other designers involved include Vivienne Westwood, Emma Hill of Mulberry and Katie Grand, who have all designed jockey silks for the occasion.
Theo Fennell will present his diamond and gold collections at the event, including the new Whip collection with RRPs from £450 to £9,950. In addition, he will design and craft the exclusive prize for the winning rider, trainer and owner, which will be presented on the day.
Fennell explained: “I have always loved the way Charles March, a very old friend, does things at Goodwood. I feel we share the same ethos as the team there, believing in great craftsmanship, originality and a very British style. We sponsored a race there some years ago and when this ladies race, The Magnolia Cup, came up it seemed an ideal way to re-ignite the relationship. It
is both for fun and charity and we hope a good time will be had by all."
