Hello, fashionistas.

Stella McCartney and Gap would like to invite 50 Mumsnetters (with or without their children) to attend the Stella McCartney for Gap launch on Monday 2nd November between 5.30pm and 7pm at the Gap Brompton Road store, Knightsbridge, London.

Here's what the guys at Gap say: "As you may know, Gap will be debuting the first ever collection of Stella McCartney for GapKids and babyGap. Launching in stores on 3rd November 2009, Stella McCartney has created a collection for boys and girls from 0-6 months to 12 years. The collection features her signature touches ? a soft colour palette, familiar silhouettes and her unique mix of unexpected pieces, creating looks that stay true to Stella?s unique vision, reinterpreted with GapKids? playful, child-like charm, keeping fun and practicality at the forefront of the design intent."

Stella herself has specifically suggested that Mumsnet members are invited to the preview event, as she is a fan of the site!

Guests will enjoy a tea party and children will be able to take part in a range of craft activities incorporating motifs from the campaign and will also receive a branded gift bag and balloon at the end of the event.

There is disabled access to the store. Baby changing facilities will be available.

If you'd like to come, please fill in this form.

Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. So, if you haven't heard by 1 November, we're sorry but you haven't been selected.

Yes, I would love to go.

However I do not live in London, and I confidently predict that this range will only be available in three stores in London, and the rest of us can whistle for it. This is always the bloody way with these 'exclusive' ranges.

And the Gap website doesn't even ship to the UK!

Hope Gap is enforcing child labor laws, as I like my children's clothes to be made by people older than they are... grin

Have just filled in the form - my first sign up thing (suppose it's not really a competition?!) as we only just moved back to the UK a few weeks ago. Almost feel like part of the in-group now (finally, an advantage to living squished into a postage-stamp flat in London!)
