The Cannes Fashion Festival announced that it has secured a trio of luminary names to sign a limited edition range of charity t-shirts. Legendary footballer, Lionel Messi, prodigious DJ and producer, Steve Aoki and world renowned sculptor artist, Lorenzo Quinn are among the first A-list celebrities to lend their signatures to the Festival’s anti-Ebola campaign.
A handful of the limited edition t-shirts have been sent to key personalities hailing from sport, music, art and film backgrounds. Cue contributions from Messi, Aoki and Quinn! The trio have generously autographed their t-shirts which will be mounted and framed. The unique pieces will then be auctioned live during one of the VIP Cannes Fashion Festival galas.
Inspired by vibrant colours, CUSTO Barcelona creator, Custo Dalmau designed the on-trend unisex t-shirt that captures the 'joie de vivre' of the famous French event.
Cannes Fashion Festival extends a huge ‘thank you’ to the generous celebrities and commends them for their commitment to combating Ebola.
While the fight against Ebola is a key charity cause, the Cannes Fashion Festival is also involved with a number of other not-for-profit organizations. A Present Back Society is one of its chosen groups, with the principal purpose of fighting poverty and malnutrition of the elderly and children principally in the developed world. The society will be holding a handful of charity events throughout the Cannes Fashion Festival in a bid to raise awareness for its cause.
