Fashion for a Cause

I was asked to be part of the fashion campaign in which Miami's fashion bloggers will help raise awareness for Breast Cancer. We were all given tshirts and asked to style them for a photoshoot. I was so excited to be able to represent my Aunt Olga in all of this. Many of us have been affected by breast cancer  in one way or another. My aunt Olga was diagnosed with breast cancer over 27 years ago and was able to beat it but unfortunately other types of cancer came back and she passed away almost 2 years ago. She was by far the most positive outgoing person, I've ever met. I was so blessed to have her in my life and influence me for the better. So this one is for you Tia Olga!






Here are all the details from Annie Vasquez which put the Fashion for a Cause Campaign together.

Twenty-six of Miami’s top fashion bloggers are joining forces during the month of October to help raise funds for breast cancer in a fashion campaign that showcases how stylish it is to give back and raise awareness for a good cause. The bloggers over a 3-day period were photographed by Getty photographer Alexander Tamargo at the Shelborne hotel in South Beach wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “Fashion for a Cause.” I designed the tee which retails for $25 and proceeds go to The Florida Foundation for Breast Cancer. The tees come in sizes small to xl, the top will be sold at boutiques such as My Best Friend’s Closet in Coral Gables, Lilac and Lilies in Ft.Lauderdale, Guy and Girl in South Beach, BrandOneThree.com and on Saturday, October 13 during Art Walk at the grand opening launch of Wynwood Squat where the photos of all twenty-six fashion bloggers will be on exhibit from 7 to 11 P.M. Wynwood Squat (wynwoodsquat.com) is free giant pop up which features 40 plus designers, artists, and entrepreneurs with monthly rotating art and video installations, live music and DJ, specialty cocktails and bites.
