We Got Ours ...You Got Yours?

The result of the fashion industry having rallied around Haiti, is a nation-wide effort to raise monies for the victims w/ proceeds from the "Fashion For Haiti" tee going to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. The campaign was organized by the The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), which appointed Beyonce as the face of the limited edition tee, and efforts are endorsed by fashion leaders such as Diane von Furstenberg, Tory Burch, Donna Karan, Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta.

The "Fashion For Haiti" logo was designed by Peter Arnell. Peter Arnell designed another tee per a previous campaign also organized by the CFDA to lend support following 9/11. The black and lime green logo features the tag line "Hope Heal Heal Haiti" underneath a block design of "To Haiti With Love," with a map of the nation standing in for the word "Haiti". The sleeve will be marked with the "Fashion for Haiti" slogan and the inside collar will have "CFDA" printed on it.

The tee is manufactured by Theory and is now available for men and women at retailers nationwide or online at http://www.cfda.com/. We feel much the same as you in that how can we ever do enough for the victims of this tragedy but we can lend support. It's the least we can do and for just 25 bucks. We got ours ...so the question is, you got yours?
