Originally created by Nutters of Savile Row in 1972, Bodymetrics at Harrods will exclusively launch a digitally re-mastered version of the white suit worn by Bianca when she became Mrs. Jagger.

Inspired by the traditions of Savile Row tailoring and the use of cutting edge technology, Bodymetrics provide an extraordinary way of buying made to measure suits, hand-tailored to the contours of one's body but requiring as little as 5 seconds to secure the most accurate body measurements in existence. The Bodymetrics service employs unique software which scans the body with rays of light, capturing over 200 000 data points, and producing a digital virtual replica of its dimensions. This incredibly accurate scan is then used to produce a pattern for garments which are tailored to the exact lines of the body - a unique method many times more accurate than traditional bespoke, and considerably faster.

Following the success of the Amphora suit from the Vivienne Westwood archives, the Bianca suit by Nutters will be the latest in the Bodymetrics made to measure Vintage Collection. Each season the range will be expanded so the Bodymetrics customer will be able to take advantage of new designs, adapted to their own taste, on a regular basis.

It will be available next month, with a retail price of £1500. What's more, all proceeds will be donated to Elton's foundation.

Bodymetrics is located in The Designer Studio Room 2, Womenswear on the First Floor at Harrods.

And last night, Elton himself helped raise funds--for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Also at the Waldorf-Astoria event were Sheryl Crow, Vanessa Minnillo and Elizabeth Hurley.
