TV personality-turned-fashion designer, Angela Simmons and Team USA’s 4-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Sanya Richards-Ross will co-host the official launch of their anticipated luxury faux fur line, Foofi & Bella on December 17, 2015.
Simmons and Richards-Ross will host the exclusive Winter preview at Technogym’s flagship SoHo Store from 7- 10 P.M. to benefit Ne-Yo's Compound Foundation. The Compound Foundation aims to create opportunities for youth in foster care and group homes. All guests are encouraged to donate an unwrapped toy upon entry.
Combining their love for fashion and commitment to empower young girls to boldly chase their dreams, Simmons and Richards-Ross remain “like-minded and passionately motivated to leave a lasting impact as entrepreneurs and make a difference in [their] communities,” says Simmons, CEO of Foofi & Bella.
“Foofi & Bella embodies the individual’s call to live ethically and responsibly,” adds Richards-Ross, CMO for Foofi & Bella. Adding, “You don’t have to sacrifice style for it.”
The collection sources 100% animal-free acrylic and polyester blends for chic, fashionable alternatives to traditional fur. The designs pay realistic homage to mink, suede, lynx and shearling. The winter collection is playful, energetic, cozy and versatile, authentically embodying the style and personal philosophy of its founders.
The inaugural collection will be available for pre-order on December 14 on www.foofiandbella.com, and offer its first 50 buyers an automatic chance to win two (2) tickets to attend the star-studded official launch party in New York City on December 17.
