Michael Kors efforts to fight world hunger

Kors has created a Watch Hunger Stop T-shirt but this isn’t your standard slogan T-shirt which hopes to provoke and engage, it is creating tangible results too because for every person who posts a picture of themselves wearing it on any social media platform using the hashtag #WatchHungerStop, Kors will personally donate 100 meals to children in need.

He has also released a limited-edition watch for the campaign (pictured below) and for each watch sold, Kors will donate $25 to the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) and as well as 100 meals to children in need.

Academy award winning actress Halle Berry, a partner in Watch Hunger Stop, travelled to Nicaragua on behalf of Watch Hunger Stop and Michael Kors in July where she accompanied WFP on a field visit to see the school meals programme in action.

You can buy the watch online from www.michaelkors.com/watchhungerstop and the T-shirts are available (for free) from Michael Kors stores until the end of October (while stocks last).

Dan Gosling – DHL Fashion Scholarship double ‘winner’

Does winning an award and then judging that same award seven years later make you a double winner? We think so.

In 2008 Dan Gosling and his Stolen Girlfriends Club co-founders Marc Moore and Luke Harwood won the inaugural DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship in New Zealand. This year Gosling is on the judging panel.

Stolen Girlfriends Club is now stocked in more than 13 countries and has grown to be one of New Zealand’s most successful fashion exporters.

He is joined on the judging panel by Max ceo John Kelly, FINZ chairman Paul Blomfield, and Megan Wildermoth (fashion and textiles specialist at DHL).
