What do you get when you give a talented French designer and a fly songstress some fabric and a cause? FFAWN + Catherine Malandrino, a fierce "t-luxe" collection benefiting the Foundation For the Achievement of Women Now, a charity started by Blige in '08. The line, which starts at $39, hits Bloomingdale's next week and is all about empowering women with messages like "I'm Free" and "I'm Power."
So how did the duo join forces? "Catherine has been a dear friend of mine for years and, after she learned about FFAWN and our mission, she offered to create a T-shirt collection that would celebrate being women, being strong and being free," Blige said. Great friends, doing great things.
