One Million Hearts: Fashion Unites for Haiti

Uncategorized

The CFDA and fashion Designer Donna Karan teamed up for a project for Karan’s charity Urban Zen called upon american designers to fashion their own paper mache hearts donated by DKNY to be sold as a part of
their auction on eBay ‘One Million Hearts’ for Haiti
— the resulting hearts were not only for a great cause, but happened to be pretty fabulous.

The hearts were all crafted by Hatian artisans, whom supporting is a big part of what the foundation does. The personalized hearts will be auctioned on eBay, the auction ending on May 2nd. I highly recommend checking out the creations and if you are feeling charitable bidding
on one from your favorite designer.

You can also see the exhibition / explosion of hearts decorating Urban Zen’s beautiful West Village store.
