The CFDA has commissioned Peter Arnell, who designed the logo for the group's post-9/11 "Fashion for America" fundraiser, to create follow-up t-shirt in support of Haiti. The tee, which will cost $25, goes on sale February 12th; all proceeds to go the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.
Meanwhile, Naomi Campbell and British First Lady Sarah Brown are organizing a runway show for February 18th, the night before London Fashion Week begins. Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, and Dolce & Gabbana have all agreed to donate dresses, and a flock of models and celebrities have offered to walk.
And the charity initiatives just keep coming. Sigerson Morrison is holding a shoe drive (and giving 15% off their spring collection to anyone who donates.) Joseph Abboud will give a chunk of all Nordstrom sales between now and January 30th to Doctors Without Borders. Fashion blog Modelina is holding a silent auction fundraiser ending tomorrow night. And the Collective Showroom will be auctioning off all sorts of jewelry and bags during tomorrow's sample sale, with 100% of auction proceeds and 10% of sale proceeds going to Haiti relief efforts.
