Disney and Bloomingdales have started an initiative called Force 4 Fashion to celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The film has been using its popularity, even before the film opens, to raise money for charity, notably its Force For Change. Taking inspiration from the film’s costume designer, Michael Kaplan, fashion favorites Cynthia Rowley, Diane von Furstenberg, Giles Deacon, Halston, Opening Ceremony, Ovadia & Sons, Parker, Rag & Bone, Timo Weiland, and Todd Snyder are each creating an outfit to be auctioned for charity that pays homage to characters from the new movie.
“This collaboration celebrates the distinctive synergy between film and fashion in the run up to an exceptional moment in the history of pop culture. We’re excited to see how this incredible lineup of designers interpret Star Wars characters in unique ways, as well as to raise money for a great cause,” said Leslie Ferraro, co-chair of Disney consumer products and interactive media, and president of Disney consumer products.
Between Dec. 2-18 the outfits will be auctioned off on CharityBuzz.com
