This week, we witnessed the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan - one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded. With the death toll continually rising and many without their homes, food or water, the people of the Philippines are in desperate need of our help. Here, we list the designers who are generously giving the proceeds from their sales to the Typhoon Haiyan fund.
