Lena Dunham Is Selling Her Clothes for a Cause

Lena Dunham is supporting the Planned Parenthood Federation of America by selling 169 clothing pieces from her closet. The women’s rights activist and feminist posted her clothes on the RealReal. 70 percent of the proceeds earned from sales will be donated to Planned Parenthood, in a time where the organization is struggling in terms of funding.

“I realized I had been carrying around a lot of crap, both internally and externally. I always thought I was going to hoard all my clothes for my future daughter, and now I understand, especially being a woman with a reproductive illness, I may end up with an adopted son, I may end up with a daughter who doesn’t identify with her gender at birth. You can’t live for the future that does not yet exist. I have to take all this good fashion fortune I’ve had and spread it,” said Lena to The New York Times

Clothes purchased from her closet will come with a personal letter as proof of authenticity. The size of the pieces range from 4 to 12, “I like being a woman who’s not a typical Hollywood size putting beautiful designer things out into the world,” Lena said. If you’re in the market for a red carpet look, Lena’s Elizabeth Kennedy gown worn at the 2017 Met Gala is on sale for $4,000.

Whether you purchase the clothes out of hate for the actress or because you want to support the cause, Lena had this to say, “Probably some people will buy the clothes because they hate me and burn them. And I bless them, too. The money’s still going to Planned Parenthood.”

Local Prints and Florals

Vania Romoff’s Latest Collab Is a Celebration of Femininity via Local Prints and Florals

Filipino designer Vania Romoff collaborated with Plains & Prints for another capsule collection. Known for her romantic and feminine designs, the brand reached out to Vania to inject her style onto the collection.

“After working with so many designers in the past, we wanted a different approach,” said Roxanne Farillas, vice-president of Plains & Prints. “Vania’s known for her femininity. It’s still a mix of Plains & Prints, but you’ll still see her style in the collection. You’ll really see her personality in it.”

The 12-piece collection features functional clothing for the everyday woman. When we got a first look of the collab, I saw romantic blouses, airy day dresses, lightweight trousers, and vibrant pieces inspired by local influences. It was like seeing our version of springtime, especially with the floral prints. Even those who aren’t into feminine pieces might be drawn to them.

When asked how it’s different from her previous capsule collection with Plains & Prints, Vania said the designs are pulled from local influences.

“[I was] inspired by local flora and art work. There are also batik and ikat prints, and the bougainvillea is also evident in a lot of the pieces,” Vania explained. “A lot of it has a happy vibe. It’s very relaxed, wearable, and fun. It’s a very lighthearted collection.” And, as Roxanne said, you’ll see Vania’s penchant for dainty ribbons and delicate embellishments, and a hint of drama with how the fabric moves.

“The general feel of my collection is always feminine. I like to do a lot of skirts and flounces, always accentuating the waistline,” Vania said. “I don’t make dresses that are too avant-garde, they’re made for every type of woman. They’re not too sexy and not too complicated.”

The Plains & Prints x Vania Romoff collection will launch in select stores and online (their website, Zalora PH, and Amazon US) starting July 6. It’ll be available nationwide on July 15.
