Malandrino and her friend Mary J. Blige put their creative minds together to launch a charitable line of T-shirts for FFAWN (The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation For the Advancement of Women Now), which helps under-served women feel empowered to reach their full potential with scholarships, grants and other supporting programs.
A percentage of all sales from the collection, called FFAWN + Catherine Malandrino, will go to the charitable organization.
The capsule collection of off-the-shoulder tees emblazoned with messages inspired by Blige's songs, including "I'm Love" and "I'm Power," will debut on Feb. 17 at Catherine Malandrino boutiques worldwide and the Bloomingdale's NYC flagship store.
Then, in June, the full line will be presented in a charity fashion show followed by the Mary J. Blige "Honors Women Concert 2010."
