Pretty Little Thing is selling a burgundy tie-dye jumpsuit inspired by a woman who soaked her garment in red wine after she was splashed by a friend.
Eleanor Walton, 19, from Leeds, was enjoying a day out at Ripon Races with friends when her white jumpsuit was ‘ruined’ by a splash of red wine.
However, her friend, Mia Williamson, 18, decided to tackle the issue head-on – and soaked Eleanor’s jumpsuit in more wine, so she didn’t just have one red blotch.
The girl’s ‘genius move’ quickly went viral, and now PLT have launched a jumpsuit inspired by the wine splash design.
Pretty Little Thing have now launched a jumpsuit near identical to the garment created by Eleanor Walton and her friend Mia Williamson (left, the wine stained jumpsuit and right, the PLT piece)
Both were stunned to see PLT had picked up their design, with Eleanor saying if she saw anyone out wearing it, she would buy them a drink
Upon hearing the news that their make-shift jumpsuit had been launched as a product by the brand, Mia posted: ‘Cannot believe we made this baby.’
Meanwhile Eleanor tweeted: ‘As if! If I see anyone out wearing this I’m buying you a drink.’
The girls went viral last week with their creation after sharing their ingenious plan on Twitter.
Mia posted: ‘So we’re 2 hours into the races, and El comes and tells me someone has spilled red wine down her… no problem.

Mia’s tweet went viral, racking up 41k likes and 3.5k retweets – along with many comments admiring her initiative.
And impressed social media users were quick to praise the results, with one person calling the idea ‘genius’ and another hailing it as ‘pure artistry.’
