An Angmering boy dressed up as an iconic fashion designer to launch a charity’s fundraising event.

Daniel Runacres, eight, donned Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld’s iconic black and white style to help launch Oxfam’s new fundraising event, Dressed by the Kids Day.

Daniel said: “I feel really smart wearing my suit, but I’m not too sure about this wig!”

Daniel was one of five junior stylists who were carefully selected following a nationwide search by Oxfam to find the faces of Dressed by the Kids Day.

The other children dressed as Anna Wintour, Zoolander and Patsy and Eddie from Absolutely Fabulous.

Entrants were asked to submit a short video entry in which they had to describe their favourite fancy dress outfit.

Taking place on Friday, April 29, Dressed by the Kids Day dares the nation to put the children in charge of their wardrobe.

Mums, dads, aunts, uncles and grandparents are encouraged to get dressed by their kids in exchange for sponsorship.

Tim Hunter, Oxfam’s head of fundraising, said: “Dressed by the Kids Day is a fun initiative with children at it’s very heart.”
