Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker and More Design Handbags for Charity
Rihanna and Sarah Jessica Parker have teamed up with Italian fashion house Fendi to design handbags which will be auctioned off for charity.
The stars, plus Top Five actress Rachel Feinstein, British model Jourdan Dunn and author Leandra Medine, were given “free rein” to design their own version of the brand’s Baguette handbag by “choosing their favourite colors, favouring their own personal tastes”, according to Fendi chairman Pietro Beccari.
Their designs will be unveiled at the brand’s new store in New York and be on display for a month from February 13. The accessories will then be auctioned online to raise money for a charity chosen by the stars.
Rihanna has selected her own charity, The Clara Lionel Foundation, which was named in honor of her grandparents and aims to improve health, education, arts, and culture for communities around the world, while Parker’s bag will raise money for The Brain Trauma Foundation.
