Fashion for Good; Protest Collabs!

Fashion for Good; Protest Collabs!

New York Fashion Week starts this Thursday (follow Molly and Veronica for up-to-the-minute style forecasting).  If you’re into that and, uh, saving the world, check out this awesome shopping opp.  

A little background...

Some seriously cool moms (behind some seriously good activist stuff) put together a compilation of essays in honor of the anniversary of the Women’s March. The book, Together We Rise, includes tons of great March-inspired writing by celebrities, activitists, and activist-celebrities. 

 BTW did you hear Tammy Duckworth is having a baby?!  She’ll be the first sitting U.S. senator to give birth in office!

In celebration of the book launch and the start of NYFW, these great ladies opened an online shop that lets you buy beautiful stuff in support of a good cause.  A dozen or so great designers (Mara Hoffman, Clare Vivier, Lingua Franca, La Ligne, and more) are donating 10-20% of the proceeds of sales to the Women’s March and Planned Parenthood.   

The stuff is a little on the pricey end, but it’s, like, GOOD quality, SUPERCOOL fashion stuff.  Oh, and the whole world-saving thing counts for something, right?!  

Start shopping now!  Or take a look at my top picks!
