Born Free aims to stop the transmission of HIV from mother to child by the end of 2015. The organization recently teamed up with 22 designers who are also mothers—like Miuccia Prada, Jenna Lyons, and Isabel Marant—for a collection sold exclusively on Shopbop. Priced between $39 and $450, all proceeds directly benefit Born Free.
