Singer Mary J. Blige has put the down the microphone and teamed up with fashion designer Catherine Malandrino to create a new line of t-shirts to benefit the singers charity, Foundation For the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN).
The t-shirts, which help raise awareness for the empowerment of underprivileged women, have a low cut neck and will feature lyrics from Blige’s songs, including the phrases “I’m Love” and “I’m Power.”
They will be available at Malandrino’s boutiques as well as Bloomingdale’s in New York starting on February 17.
"As a designer, I feel I have a role to play," Malandrino said in a press release. “What I want is to free women. Femininity is a strength and not a weakness.”
Blige says the shirts not only support a great cause but also provide a unique look.
“Even better, every woman can feel beautiful and comfortable rocking these Ts just about anywhere,” said Blige. “Catherine . . . offered to create a t-shirt collection that would celebrate being women, being strong and being free. These are not your average t-shirts.”
