LONDON — The Zegna Foundation has teamed with London College of Fashion on a tailored clothing project aimed at supporting young, recovering addicts in Italy and female prisoners in the U.K., WWD has learned. An announcement is expected today.
Conscious Contemporary Tailoring unites the work of students at LCF with weavers at Italy’s well-known San Patrignano Community, and women at Making for Change. The latter is a social enterprise set up by LCF and Britain’s Ministry of Justice that provides skills and employment for serving and recently released offenders to help them reintegrate into society.
Exclusive: @tommyhilfiger has tapped 22-year-old actress @zendaya to be his newest collaborator and together they will launch a see-now-buy-now collection in February. Speaking to WWD about the project, the Spider-Man actress said: “Fashion is more than just wearing cool clothes. It’s a way to celebrate self-expression and individuality, which is extremely empowering. This is why I am proud to partner with Tommy Hilfiger.” Tap the link in bio for the full scoop. #TommyXZendaya #wwdfashion
