DUBAI: French fashion house Chloe has partnered with UNICEF on a new capsule collection to support Girls Forward, a non-profit initiative dedicated to creating and enhancing opportunities for girls who have been displaced due to conflict or persecution. The charitable line of jewelry and attire was launched on International Women’s Day, which took place on March 8, with the support of influential faces such as Lebanese-Australian model Jessica Kahawaty and Saudi creative Alaa Balkhy.

The collection includes a graphic t-shirt, a vibrant scarf, a bracelet, necklace and pins with graphic medallions, as well as a soft, heart-shaped printed pouch. It should be noted that the t-shirt in question has already been worn by many style influencers on Instagram.

Kahawaty took to the social media platform to show support for the initiative.

“On this symbolic and historic day, I’m proud to be a small part of the Chloé and UNICEF initiative,” she wrote alongside a picture of herself donning the charitable t-shirt that depicts people holding hands.

“They have together sealed a three-year agreement around gender empowerment initiatives that is set to reach 6.5 million adolescent girls and young women around the world, providing them with skills to advance in the workplace.”

She went on to add that “the Girls Forward initiative, which encompasses digital and technology skills as well as entrepreneurial advancement, will be implemented in countries such as Bolivia, Jordan, Morocco, Senegal and Tajikistan. 100% of revenues from this capsule go towards UNICEF.”

It’s not the first time that the model, humanitarian and entrepreneur has teamed up with UNICEF. She previously visited Jordan’s Azraq refugee camp near the border with Syria in a bid to raise awareness about the plight of the families who live there.

She also visited the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan to help children affected by the Syrian crisis.

Chloé announced a three-year partnership with UNICEF in 2019 with the aim of supporting UNICEF programs that help young women empower themselves with regard to education, employability and active citizenship.

The collection is available online on chloe.com and in Chloé boutiques in France, Italy, Japan, the UAE, the United Kingdom and the United States.
