Project catwalk

It must be bloody galling being a fashion student - you spend years sharpening pencils, drawing cloaks, being shouted at and trying to persuade models to work with you, and are still lucky to get a job choosing the direction the zips will go in Peacocks' summer range of kids' trousers. But then, someone has a top thirty hit and before you know it, they've got their own label and a clothing range in the windows of C&A, which has specially reopened because they're great.

Latest muso-turned-designer is - and here, insult turns into a really nasty injury that could fester - Matt Helders. The bloody drummer from the Arctic Monkeys.

A whole pound from each of his limited-edition of 600 tshirts will be going to some sort of charity. It'll all be flogged through ASOS.com.

The strangest thing is it just has his name, and doesn't mention the band - the only person I know who has the Feeling cd is my mum, and she wouldn't know his name if she saw it wearing a pink tank-top in the Saturday supplement.

And in a Monkeys interview last year, the rest of the band revealed that Helders was a source of much amusement for his bad taste in clothing and love of using the boxes of free clothes they got sent like a dressing up box from primary school. Still his colaboration with Sarah Harding should be good... are the PRs struggling to make stuff up until the LCC gigs?
