Victoria Beckham is taking the fight on AIDS on her own terms, through fashion. The celebrity fashion designer has designed a line of special items in honour of World AIDS Day including a ribbon pin, key chain and a T-shirt featuring a heart-and-eyes illustration inspired by the charity’s pink ribbon.
“The world has committed to end the AIDS epidemic as part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and I truly believe this is a real possibility,” Beckham told WWD. “We have come such a long way in the fight against AIDS…But we are not there yet. There are still people being left behind due to gender inequalities, stigma and discrimination and lack of resources. I am proud to take a stand, speaking up for change and pushing on towards our common goal of ending AIDS.”
It has certainly gained traction with Beckham’s celebrity friends, such as Eva Longoria, who posted an update on Instagram to support the worthy cause.
The items will be available for sale on 1 December at www.victoriabeckham.com. All proceeds from the sale of the items will go towards UNAIDS.
