After the months-long global parade, which is fashion month, runway after runway after collection, fashion can sometimes start to feel frivolous. What is the purpose of all of this? Sometimes, fashion exists simply for its sake.
Other times, however, fashion is fine. Case in point: Michael Kors’s Watch Hunger Stops initiative. In a new campaign, the brand has teamed up with Olivia Culpo and multimedia artist Bonny Guo, better known as NYSometimes, to launch a limited edition bag and bag to benefit the United Nations World Food Program. Debut, voiced Love connects the world, is this year’s iteration of Kors’ longstanding partnership with the World Food Program, an annual initiative that has garnered the support of celebrities such as Kate Hudson, Halle Berry and Lupita Nyong’o. Since 2013, Michael Kors has provided 29 million school meals to children in food-insecure regions of the world.
The campaign features two items, both designed by Guo: a black tote with the word “love” written on it, and a white canvas bag with the phrase “food is love” emblazoned all over. All profits from the sale will be donated.
Additionally, a Michael Kors Instagram filter called “Share Your Heart” can be found on the company’s Instagram page and used on social media posts across the app. Each use of the filter activates a donation of 50 meals to the World Food Program.
Tonight, Kors will host the God Love We Deliver 2022 Golden Heart Awards Ceremony in New York. This year’s celebration, hosted by Billy Porter, will include such honorees as Jessica Alba, Bella Hadid, Huma Abedin and Karen Pearl.
“We are all more connected than ever,” Kors said, “but we still need a reminder that love makes the world go round.”
