Launch You’ll Love: Donna Karan’s Fashion For Haiti: One Million Hearts InitiativeApr 22, 2013 @ 3:30 pm
Donna Karan’s Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts initiative is now up for your browsing and bidding pleasure. The designer, along with Council of American Fashion Designers President Diane Von Furstenberg, helped wrangle over 160 designers in the CFDA to decorate papier-mâché hearts, and the one-of-a-kind pieces are up for auction on eBay starting today. Proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Haitian Artisan Project within Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Foundation, which fosters the education of Haiti’s artisans. “Designing is designing the future,” Karan remarked at the reveal of the hearts at her Urban Zen store in New York City this month, where she was joined by designer Kenneth Cole and supporter Hugh Jackman. “All of us design clothing, apparel, but unless we design people’s insides we can’t design their outside and in their inside is their heart.” Visit ebay.com to see the designer hearts, and place your bids through May 2.
