Artists from the worlds of film and music are supporting Fashion Against AIDS (FAA) this Spring, H&M’s and Designers Against AIDS’s mutual initiative to help spread the message of safe sex and HIV/AIDS prevention to young people around the globe.
Selma Blair, Akon, Nikki Reed, Scissor Sisters and The Misshapes are among the celebrities involved in this year’s FAA collection, which for 2011 is a unisex range. The collection is available in H&M’s Divided department and online from April 26, with 25% of sales donated to the charity Designers Against AIDS and various other international HIV/AIDS prevention projects. The FAA campaigns have so far raised more than 41 million Swedish krona.
"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do." - Apple Computer Inc.
