Ralph Lauren X Team USA

The opening ceremony of the Olympics is the one moment when every country gets a chance to give the world a taste of its essence. For some countries athletes wore traditional garbs from their culture. Others wore more modern and colorful outfits. Team USA adorned a chic nautical theme that embodied classic American spirit. For the 5th straight Olympics Team USA was officially outfitted by Ralph Lauren. No U.S. apparel company is more associated with classic American style than Ralph Lauren. Ralph Lauren has always celebrated American iconography and it has always been present in their style. The uniforms display some of the classic hallmarks of Olympics past: Clean white bottoms, navy blazers, a classic combination of red, white and blue.  As we continue to cheer for Michael Phelps and the fantastic five, let us take a look at Ralph Lauren’s influence over the last five Olympics.

FASHION FOR HUMANITY EVENTS: Taking Charity Events to a Whole New Level

Fashion for Humanity Events has been holding events all around Florida for almost 2 years. They had events in Philadelphia, New York, and Miami.

When you would walk into the event and see the designers, models, painters, singers, dancers and all forms of entertainment, you would never expect it was a charity event.

They pick charities to receive the profits based on a lottery system in the categories of Children/Community, Animals and Health. Not only are the events entertaining, 100% of profits go to charity.

It is a win/win situation, people can be inspired, have a good time, be entertained, all while giving back to their community. The beginner and professional models gain experince/confidence, businesses gain business, and charities gain funds.

Rebecca Kerchak, Founder and CEO of FFHE, started the nonprofit because of the negativity she saw in the fashion world and the mistrust in the charity world. Her goal, since she was 5 years old, was to mix fashion and charity together in a way that was exciting, positive and charitable. After seeing a few of her events, I would say she accomplished that goal.
