We can’t believe we just discovered these mommy & me dresses designed by Marchesa to benefit Born Free Africa, a nonprofit with the mission to end mother-to-child HIV transmission by 2015. They hit ShopBop on April 23, 2014 but as of today, there is still availability in both women and child sizes. Not only do we love the color, print & overall design, we especially appreciate that 100% of the profits* will benefit Born Free!
Designed by Marchesa's Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, this elegant cocktail dress for mom is crafted with a slim, solid bodice and a full, pleated skirt in an exclusive Born Free print, designed by Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu. Extra-long waist tie. Spaghetti straps. Hidden back zip. Double-layered bodice and semi-sheer skirt. The matching charming voile child's party dress is designed with crisp shirting on the bodice and a grosgrain ribbon tied at the waist. The dress is sleeveless with a double-layered skirt. These mother daughter matching dresses would be absolutely perfect for a summer garden wedding!
Born Free is a global initiative with a single goal: to end mother-to-child HIV transmission by Dec. 31, 2015. This exclusive collection was formed in collaboration with Shopbop, Vogue, and 22 top designers, and 100% of the profits* will benefit Born Free. The M•A•C AIDS Fund will match the total purchase price of all tickets sold for the Born Free Mother’s Day Family Carnival and the total purchase price of all products sold, up to $500,000.
