New York, December 8, 2015 – Fashion designers channeled The Force last week for a charitable initiative called Force 4 Fashion. Taking inspiration from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie, fashion favorites Cynthia Rowley, Diane von Furstenberg, Giles Deacon, Halston, Opening Ceremony, Ovadia & Sons, Parker, Rag & Bone, Timo Weiland, and Todd Snyder each created an outfit to be auctioned for charity.
“This collaboration celebrates the distinctive synergy between film and fashion in the run up to an exceptional moment in the history of pop culture. We’re excited to see how this incredible lineup of designers interpret Star Wars characters in unique ways, as well as to raise money for a great cause.” – Leslie Ferraro, co-chair, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media and President, Disney Consumer Products.
They kicked off the auction at a special, star-studded event at the Skylight Modern in NYC with Star Wars cast members, designers, and influencers in attendance.
The outfits are being auctioned off until December 18 by Bloomingdale’s on CharityBuzz.com, with the proceeds benefiting their holiday charity partner, Child Mind Institute, on behalf of Star Wars: Force For Change — a charitable initiative that empowers people to make a positive impact on the world around them. Happy bidding!
