In keeping with her belief that clothes can empower women, Catherine Malandrino has teamed up with her friend Mary J. Blige to cobrand a T-shirt collection that will strive to do just that.
Their new label, FFAWN + Catherine Malandrino, features tunics with hand-painted messages such as “I’m Free” and “I’m Power.” The collection will hit stores next week. As a nine-time Grammy Award winner who has sold more than 65 million records, Blige knows the impact of making an appearance. But the one she and Malandrino have penciled in for Feb. 17 at Bloomingdale’s in Manhattan is geared to drum up attention for FFAWN, Foundation for the Achievement of Women Now, the charity she started in 2008.
