Actress Sienna Miller, shoe maestro Tamara Mellon, and nine other designers are working with Harper’s Bazaar to create t-shirts for charity.
Each woman is creating her own design for the “Women for Women” collection. Proceeds will go to Women for Women International, which helps those whose lives have been shattered in war-torn countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo. The organization provides financial and emotional support, as well as jobs and business skills training.
Lucy Yeomans, editor of Harper’s Bazaar, said, “I’m thrilled at the amazing and heart-warming response from each British designer to support [this] incredible charity. There’s something quite powerful and poignant about top British female talent using their creativity to raise money for a charity that helps other women, and I’m extremely proud that Bazaar is at the heart of this campaign.”
The collection will be launched on March 8, which is International Women’s Day. Each t-shirt will cost 30 Euros.
