NET-A-PORTER CELEBRATES INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
To mark International Women's Day on Friday March 8, NET-A-PORTER will invite it's extensive global audience of over nine million to share their #PowerToChange commitment for a better, more equal world and to harness their power to create a more peaceful and prosperous environment for women worldwide.
The global NET-A-PORTER community is invited to shop from the 13 exclusive pieces created in collaboration with 12 female designers across ready-to-wear, lifestyle and jewellery with 100% of NET-A-PORTER profits donated to Women for Women International.
Now in the fourth year of their partnership with Women for Women International, 100% of all proceeds will be donated to the charity which aims to help women living in war torn countries rebuild their lives.
The exclusive collection consists of nine t-shirts by Stella McCartney, Emilia Wickstead, Westman Atelier, Tove, Anya Hindmarch, Jennifer Fisher, Simone Rocha, Amina Muaddi and Ninety Percent; jewellery from Roxanne Assoulin and Alighieri, and homeware from Anissa Kermiche.
"After a year like no other, supporting and celebrating our global community of women has never been more important. We are incredibly honoured to partner with Women for Women International for a fourth year and continue our support of their critical work." says Alison Loehnis, President NET-A-PORTER & MR PORTER.
"At NET-A-PORTER, we are proud to reinforce this commitment, while cultivating and inspiring meaningful change.” continues Loehnis.
Each piece reflects the personal interpretation of women's empowerment and what it means to each chosen creative. Stella McCartney's contribution depicts a female superhero ‘Super Stella’; Emilia Wickstead, Tove, Ninety Percent and Westman Atelier create minimalist designs to celebrate Incredible Women. Anya Hindmarch uses artwork produced by Margaret Calvert, entitled ‘Woman at Work’, the British road sign features a female figure. Jewelry designer Jennifer Fisher offers an exclusive t-shirt which embraces the unity of women while Amina Muaddi’s graphic long-sleeve t-shirt honours womanhood. Alighieri’s necklace celebrates the beauty of the woman’s body, while Roxanne Assoulin creates a version of her much-loved stacked bracelets with the words ‘Kind Woman’. And Anissa Kermiche’s Titty Committee Mini Jugs are inspired by her bestselling Jugs Jug, reimagined as a pair to embrace female solidarity.
In addition to the donation of 100% of profits from the sales within this collection, for every public post tagged #PowerToChange, @womenforwomen and @netaporter on TikTok or Instagram between March 1 2021 to March 8 2021, NET-A-PORTER will also donate $1 to Women for Women International.
All profits from activity will go towards Women for Women International’s critical work helping women survivors of war to rebuild their lives and create lasting change in their communities.
The organization enrols women living in some of the world’s most dangerous places on a year-long training program where they learn about their rights, health, a vocational skill and form a support network of women with similar experiences. For International Women’s Day 2021 the charity is asking women everywhere to use their #PowerToChange the world – to make it more equal, peaceful, and prosperous for women everywhere by signing the #PowerToChange commitment by March 8th.
Following the success of its previous partnerships, NET-A-PORTER’s campaigns have raised enough money to support over 850 women through the charity’s year-long training program.
