Defenders has friends in fashion! And designer Yotam Solomon is using his upcoming spring collection to prove that environmental awareness is all the rage.
Solomon - who says, “Environmentally friendly high fashion is on our forefront!” - drew inspiration for his coming spring collection, “Oil Spill,” from this year’s BP oil disaster, which he believes is “a major event in our decade and even century.” He hopes the collection, which comprises a variety of heels, dresses and separates, will raise awareness about the tragic oil spill and other environmental issues.
The eco-friendly designer has pledged to donate a portion of the sales from the 2011 collection to Defenders for our work in the Gulf.
You don’t have to be a fashionista to know that hard work and generosity like that never go out of style!
YOU can help protect wildlife impacted by oil in the Gulf of Mexico too – urge your Senators to pass the Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Accountability Act before Congress adjourns for the year.
