Alexander Wang Partners with DoSomething to get charitable for his 10th Anniversary
By Kenneth Richard | The Impressionist
Never one to think small, designer Alexander Wang has partnered with DoSomething.org to help the house not only celebrate their 10th anniversary, but do some good at the same time by raising funds and awareness for the youth and social change charity.
To kick off the program, the house enlisted longtime creative collaborators, Pascal Dangin of creative agency KiDS and iconic fashion lensman Steven Klein, to shoot a series of 38 portraits of people Wang admires. The group of influencers includes Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West, Kate Moss, A$AP Rocky, Alison Mosshart, Daria Werbowy, Pamela Anderson, Rod Stewart, Kristen Wiig, Taraji Henson, Grimes, Lauren Hutton and The Weeknd.
A bevy of models and even Pamela Anderson posed in the Wang-designed, co-branded, DoSomething hoodies and T-shirts, which were worn by all participants in their own, personal style. As for our own personal favorite photos, have to support our family of creatives: Pascal Dangin, Steven Klein and Alexander themselves.
The Alexander Wang x DoSomething hoodies and T-shirts will be available exclusively in Alexander Wang stores worldwide and on www.alexanderwang.com starting September 1, 2015. Half, that is, 50% for those of you who like percentages, of the retail price will go to DoSomething.org. For a 10th celebration, not half bad!
