I always love when fashion, something that is materialistic is used to aid in wonderful causes that are very skin deep! Fashion Fights Cancer is one cause that I hold near and dear to my heart! Fashion Fights Cancer (FFC), is an organization that offers therapeutic fashion workshops to cancer patients and survivors. Currently, FFC has partnered with accessories design duo The Freeman Sisters (theFFS) in
launching a line of beaded jewelry to benefit the nonprofit organization.
TheFFS are known for their brightly colored beaded jewelry that has a global/eclectic twist that grace the selling floors of such prestigious specialty stores as Barney’s New York and Fred Siegel. This capsule collection is no exception to their namesake aesthetic; super cute, bright and great for summer!
TheFFS for FFC collection reflects the kaleidoscope of color that is theFFS signature and part of the new FFC logo, which is a nod to colors of cancer awareness ribbons. It includes a handcrafted necklace, and three bracelets that combine neon infused Swarovski pearls, recycled vintage vulcanite, green sapphires as well as faceted turquoise and pyrite. Priced between $90 and $400, 100% of the designers’ profits are going directly to help fund programs and workshops that nurture the mind, bodies and souls of cancer patients. I love it when we know our well and hard earned money goes towards something beautiful and unique we can ware but is also completely sent to those in need of it!! How Wonderful…!
The collection is available exclusively Greenwich Jewelers in NYC or on its website at www.greenwichjewelers.com, for a limited time only: now through Labor Day.
