It seems that the sale of all of those $25 'Fashion For Haiti' t-shirts, which were ubiquitous on celebs, models, designers and commoners during New York Fashion Week, really added up.
Last night, Diane von Furstenberg, the president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Tory Burch and Andrew Rosen, the CEO of Theory, which produced the 'Fashion For Haiti' tees, awarded a $1 million check representing the t-shirt proceeds to Bill Clinton, who accepted it on behalf of the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.
On February 12th, the t-shirts, which read 'To Haiti With Love. Hope. Help. Heal. Haiti,' went on sale at various retailers including Barneys, Bloomingdales, Gilt.com, QVC and J. Crew. The proceeds, now in the hands of Clinton's organization, will go towards the reconstruction of Haiti following the tragic January 12th earthquake.
Other fashion events organized for the quake victims include a Modelinia ping-pong tournament, a Mango bag designed by Scarlett Johansson and the Naomi Campbell-organized 'Fashion For Relief' celebrity runway shows in New York and London, in which designers such as Calvin Klein, Lanvin and Dolce & Gabbana donated garments to be auctioned on Net-a-Porter.com.
See what else von Furstenberg has had her hand in lately.
