Harper’s Bazaar has bought together some of the UK’s top British female designers to create a range of ‘must have’ limited edition T-shirts in aid of Women for Women International, a charity helping women whose lives have been shattered by war.
The ‘Women for Women’ t-shirt campaign, which coincides with International Women’s Day on 8 March, was born out of a meeting between Harper’s Bazaar Editor, Lucy Yeomans and Baghdad-born charity founder, Zainab Salbi, who is well known in the US as the author of two books, and is a regular on Oprah in New York.
Lucy was so moved by Zainab’s tireless efforts and the way her organisation works, with letter writing, donations and ‘sister-to-sister connections’, that she was determined to find a way that Bazaar could unite women in the fashion industry to support her cause.
As a result, Harper’s Bazaar asked designers – Alice Temperley, Bella Freud, Charlotte Dellal, Holly Fulton, Betty Jackson, Clare Waight Keller for Pringle of Scotland, Savannah Miller for Twenty8Twelve, Tamara Mellon for Jimmy Choo, Nicole Farhi, Pam Hogg and Amanda Wakeley – to design the t-shirts. Each designer has stamped her mark so that each t-shirt design is wildly individual.
Available to buy on net-a-porter.com for £30 each from 08 March.
