Round your neck, on your wrist, in your hair or tied nonchalantly around your [designer] bag, the “must-have” accessory dominating New York Fashion Week – both on and off the runway – sure is versatile.
Forget ugly shoes, necklaces that feel like you’re carrying a weight round your neck and anything fluffy.
This year it’s all about the white bandana.
No longer an accessory just for cowboys and/or gang members, it’s been spotted on everyone from designers and magazine editors to top models and street style stars. Oh, and it costs just $4.
And there’s a very good reason for its ubiquity.
#Regram @bof : “The #tiedtogether movement launched less than one week ago and hundreds of people around the world have already participated, making a clear statement in support of solidarity, human unity and inclusiveness. We are taking this one step further and raising money for the ACLU (@aclu_nationwide) and UNHCR (@unrefugees) to reach a total of 10,000 #tiedtogether posts on Instagram this Fashion Month. For each #tiedtogether post, our donors and benefactors will pledge $5 to the #tiedtogether campaign. It’s this simple: The more you post, the more money we raise together. Our first donor is one of our investors, Carmen Busquets, who has pledged her own funds to the sum of $10,000 – equaling 2,000 #tiedtogether posts. Since launching the initiative, users have generated 1,316 #tiedtogether posts. Carmen also challenges others in the industry to pledge funds — no amount is too small. What actions are you going to take?”
