Save the Elephants with Pamela Love, SUNO & Prize Pins
Aside from the wealth of stellar collections from designers like Public School, Jeremy Scott, and Chromat (to name but a few) many of the attendees of MADE Fashion Week SS14 were struck by the literal elephant in the room upon entering Milk Studios. A sculpture created by artist Tristin Lowe, the elephant was the effort of a partnership between Made and the Clinton Foundation to raise awareness on the horrors of the ivory trade, one that is leading to the extinction of the magnificent African elephant. We are excited to announce that the art installation was just the beginning of this partnership, as Made and the Clinton Foundation continue their collaboration with a limited edition line of holiday gifts.
To continue raising awareness of the great danger in which elephants are daily placed in (96 elephants are killed everyday!), all of the gifts are elephant-inspired and created by some of our favorite designers. The accessories for sale include scarves by SUNO, pins by Prize Pins, and necklaces by Pamela Love. Proceeds from every sale will go to major NGO’s that aid in the prevention of the ivory trade, such as the Wildlife Conservation Society, the Nature Conservancy, and Conservation International. Consider your holiday shopping nearly over with our array of presents; sure you could buy something else, but wouldn’t it feel nice to tell Mom that she helped save an elephant’s life with her new necklace?
