New York: Marchesa, a high-end design team have been approached by ‘Playboy Magazine’ to give their bunny costume a new look for the opening of the ‘Playboy Club’ in London.

"We were approached and were immediately intrigued by the opportunity," a daily quoted Marchesa co-designer Georgina Chapman as telling ‘Vogue’.

"The Playboy Bunny costume is one of fashion and pop culture`s most iconic emblems. The Playboy brand is about fantasy and escapism, which are elements embodied in our Marchesa collections," he said.

"I recently discovered that both Lauren Hutton and Debbie Harry were Playboy Bunnies in the Sixties. They would`ve been perfect; they are so fun and daring in their style!" Chapman added.

The costume will be auctioned to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.
