Fashion for Japan: Solange Knowles, Tory Burch, Opening Ceremony and Kate Spade Give Back
Over the past two weeks, the live coverage of the tragedy in Japan has prompted everyone to get together to do whatever they can to help all those affected by the earthquake and tsunami damage. Both the fashion industry and celebrities alike have stepped up to use their voice to create awareness and raise money.
Last night, Glamazon fave Solange Knowles tweeted that her adorable son Julez was creating t-shirts to raise money for Japan called ‘JULEZ FOR JAPAN‘. All proceeds will go toward the Japanese Peace Winds foundation. The link to order and support should be up within the next day, so be on the lookout! She will most likely post the site on her Twitter.
Just last week, Forever 21 donated 100% of their proceeds of their GLOBAL online sales to the Red Cross on March 18,2011 for the entire day.
Some of my personal favorites, Opening Ceremony, Kate Spade, and Tory Burch have started a trend by creating merchandise where 100% of the proceeds will go to Japan.
Opening Ceremony‘s T-shirt for Japan retails for $30 and can be found on their site with the purpose of:
‘aiding the american red cross’ earthquake & tsunami relief efforts in japan, opening ceremony has created this t-shirt in solidarity with a country near and dear to our hearts.’
Kate Spade‘s tote retails for $18.
Tory Burch is donating all proceeds from her t-shirt to the Red Cross as well offering free shipping until September 15,2011.
I’m having such a hard time picking which item to purchase so I may get all three! What are you going to do to help Glamazons? To see which other designers have stepped up, check out this list. For more information about the American Red Cross, please visit www.redcross.org
