Fashion designers team up to tackle breast cancer

While it’s true that buying designer fashion jewelry should make you feel good, it’s rare that it also does good as well. But that’s exactly what happened in September, as the Council of Fashion Designers of America partnered with home shopping network QVC on a special program designed to help the fight against breast cancer.

The QVC Designer Charms for Charity campaign featured CFDA designers developing special charm bracelets to be sold during special programming tied to New York Fashion Week. Top names such as Robert Lee Morris jewelry made limited edition charms available, with all proceeds going to the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer charity.

“The CFDA and its members are proud of the accomplishments made by Fashion Targets Breast Cancer in the past 15 years,” said Steven Kolb, executive director of CFDA. “It is our hope that progress in treating breast cancer will advance so we do not have another landmark anniversary like this one.”

Rilee & Lo features jewelry from distinguished CFDA members such as Robert Lee Morris, as well as pieces from up-and-coming designers such as CC Skye jewelry.
