Donna Karan, together with the CFDA and eBay, celebrated the launch of “Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts” on Thursday, April 11th with a celebratory cocktail reception at Urban Zen.
Designers and industry influencers gathered to support the project which will benefit the Haitian Artisan Project – a special project from Donna Karan’s Urban Zen organization. Among those who attended were Hugh Jackman & Deborra-Lee Furness, Kenneth Cole, Vera Wang, Rachel Roy, Charlotte Ronson, Nicole Miller, Mara Hoffman, Monica Botkier, Pamela Love, Olivier Theyskens and Anna Corinna Sellinger.
The “Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts” collection will be auctioned off exclusively on eBay, eBay.com/fashionforhaiti, beginning on Monday, April 22 at 11AM ET / 8AM PT through May 2. During this time, you can bid on the designer-embellished hearts ornaments, with 100% of proceeds from the auction benefitting Urban Zen’s Artisan program, which is dedicated to creating jobs, vocational education, and highlighting the creativity of Haiti’s artisans. eBay has a legacy of partnering with designers and celebrities to raise funds for charitable causes and celebrating original design is an important part of that vision. With “Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts,” eBay will provide its global platform to raise awareness and financial support for this important cause.
The world’s largest marketplace and leading platform for charitable giving eBay has partnered with Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Foundation and the CFDA (Council for American Fashion Designers) for “Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts,” a collective partnership that brings together more than 150 CFDA designers, including Donna Karan, Diane Von Furstenberg, Narciso Rodriguez, Tory Burch, Oscar de la Renta, Olivier Theyskens and more in an effort to raise social consciousness and funds for the Haitian Artisan Project.
