Dame Prue Leith and Jo Wood turned heads as they hit the catwalk wearing textiles recycled from King Charles’s Sandringham Estate on Tuesday evening.

The Great British Bake Off presenter, 84, looked fabulous in a pink and white dress and jacket to strut her stuff at the Other House in London’s Kensington.

To celebrate VIN + OMI’s 20th anniversary, Prue showcased an outfit made from willow bark sourced from the King’s Sandringham estate. 

As part of the funky fashion designer’s Sci-Fi Magpie range, her garments were  pulped and turned into a linen-like fabric and beetroot was used to dye it.

Prue appeared in high spirits as she waltzed down the black-and-white runway wearing white trainers featuring rainbow laces.

In typical Prue style, she paired her look with a set of red and white statement glasses and a pair of fun red dangly earrings and a matching necklace.

Her youthful garment was made from plastic waste from leading art brand Daler-Rowney.

It was converted into a bonded recycled plastic that doesn’t release microfibres like standard recycled plastics, giving waste plastic a second, safe, life.

Showing off her toned shoulders, Jo looked incredible as she modelled the fabulous ensemble, which featured a colourful bird being spotted by aliens.

She added inches to her petite frame with a pair of silver Terry de Havilland platform heels.

Keeping her accessories simple, she finished of her look with a set of brown and black rope-inspired bracelets.
