During the last few weeks, the DAA Online Charity Shop has been given a small revamp. Take a look at our carefully handpicked selection of pre-loved, new and handmade pieces to score amazing finds that you don't have to feel quilty about - 100% of the sale proceeds go to our Education Center and DAA's new iniatives to raise AIDS awareness in Asia. We have eveything from those coveted Balenciaga bags and Maison Martin Margiela t-shirts to handmade pieces and Fashion Against AIDS classics that were modeled by Katy Perry, Leigh Lezark and Penn Badgley, Gossip Girl's Lonely Boy.
Our customized Hmong collection consists of special pieces handmade by a fashion designer in Antwerp who used vintage fabrics, some over 40 years old, made by Hmong people in Thailand and turned them into contemporary pieces like the beautiful jacket pictured. Hmong textile art has a rich history, it is traditionally embroidered and features bold patterns and contrasting colors. The vintage fabrics are combined with denim, leather and printed cotton in unique bags, accessories and skirts. Hannelore Knuts, the Belgian model and actress who has appeared on Vogue covers seven times (!), loved them.
New additions to the online charity store include a donation of unisex pieces by Naco-Paris that are super fun, like the brand itself. Naco-Paris once got one Karl Lagerfeld to wear a Karl Who? cotton shopper after they won a lawsuit by Chanel at court.
