On too many occasions fashion has held ownership of a bad rep, but there are plenty of positives to have arisen as a result of the industry, case in point, Florence Kosky’s new collaboration with suicide prevention charity Papryus.
Utilising the talents of the kind of contacts that come with campaigns for Burberry, Dior catwalks and a four figure Instagram following, the model, actress and director launches #DressForLife today.
A high fashion digital auction – lots boast the likes of Chanel, Paul Smith and Topshop Unique – the sale has already raised over a grand for the charity, and remains open until the 20th (that’s Monday, for those unsure). An issue close to Kosky and which she is passionate about, the auction has been organised to raise awareness and join the campaign against suicide as taboo.
Set up in 1997, Papyrus focuses on suicide amongst young people; all donations from the sale will go directly to the charity. Find it here.
