Help for Haiti Tee Design

The Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc, (CFDA) a not-for-profit trade association that leads industry-wide initiatives and whose membership consists of more than 350 of America’s foremost womenswear, menswear, jewelry, and accessory designers is reaching out to offer their support to the people of Haiti.

Peter Arnell, who in 2001 created the now iconic mended heart logo for the “Fashion for America” fundraiser, has designed a T-Shirt with a black and lime green logo that features the words “Hope Help Heal Haiti” underneath a block design of “To Haiti With Love“.  The sleeve will be marked with the “Fashion for Haiti” slogan and the inside collar will have “CFDA” printed on it.

The short sleeve Tee will be manufactured for both men and women by Theory with the proceeds being given to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, which is raising funds for immediate, high-impact relief and long-term recovery efforts to help those in Haiti who are most in need of assistance.

The tragedy in Haiti has affected everyone and most of us individually have given money for relief,” said Diane von Furstenberg, President of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. “However, I think it is now important to send a message and create a channel for funding from fashion as an industry.”

The T-shirt, which retails for $25.00, will be available for purchase starting February 12th online at www.cfda.com in addition to selected retailers.  The following is a list of retailers who will be participating in this fundraising initiative:
