Pudsey, the Children in Need bear, has been given a very stylish makeover this year!

Some of the fashion world's top talent has given their time to create a range of very special, extra-stylish Pudsey bears. The collection will be exhibited in Liberty from now until 19 November 2011, and the bears are being auctioned off to raise funds for BBC Children in Need. You can bid by clicking here.

The designers involved are a who's who of British fashion: Mulberry by Emma Hill, Katie Hillier, Erdem, Patrick Grant, Jonathan Saunders, PPQ, Pringle of Scotland by Alistair Carr featuring Forevermark diamonds, Henry Holland, Giles Deacon, Liberty and Louis Vuitton by Kim Jones for Katie Grand.

Henry Holland apparently said of the design process "Pudsey was great to work with and not as much of a diva as I had thought!"

We'd expect nothing less of such a kind and giving bear!
