Here in New York, the weather is never usually that big of a topic. With last week’s arrival of Hurricane Sandy, that totally changed, and now the recovery is on the mind of every soul here. While there are a variety of relief organizations, there have been some really creative and amazing charitable initiatives in the fashion world. Worth mentioning are those by Alejandro Ingelmo and Osklen.
Alejandro, a favorite of the Snob team, designs some of my favorite shoes for both sexes. He’s stepped up to the plate now, and will be donating 10% of sales from his SoHo store at 51 Wooster Street until November 9th, 2012. Donations will be sent to Feeding America, a hunger relief organization, which is helping those affected by the hurricane.
The fabulous Brazilian brand, Osklen, will be donating 10% of sales, too, to the Red Cross to aid in Sandy Relief. You’ll be able to shop in New York at 97 Wooster Street in SoHo, and 1101 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.
