The aim is to spread awareness about HIV/AIDS, which affects many young people all over the world. The collection â€śFashion Against AIDSâ€? will be available in H&Mâ€™s Divided departments from February 2008.
The artists participate free of charge and 25 per cent of the proceeds from the collection will go to HIV/AIDS-prevention projects around the world. This will be coordinated by DAA and YouthAIDS, Population Services Internationalâ€™s (PSI) HIV/AIDS prevention initiative which reaches more than 600 million young people in 60 countries.
Prices vary from ÂŁ7.99 to ÂŁ19.99. All garments are made from 100 per cent certified organic cotton and carry a special hang tag that reads: â€śThis might be the most important piece of clothing youâ€™ve ever had your hands on.â€?Â
