Emily Ratajkowski Teams Up with Designer Christy Dawn to Create ‘The Emily Dress’
Emily Ratajkowski helped create a dress that gives back.
The model-turned-actress reached out to designer and fellow former model Christy Dawn to work together. Dubbed, the “Emily” dress, it is a square neckline minidress with three-quarter sleeves that flare out at the ends. “I’ve always been interested in designing and creating clothes for women by women that are unique and flattering. Teaming up with Christy, an amazing friend, mother, and entrepreneur, was an ideal situation,” Ratajkowski said in a statement.
In an interview with WWD, Dawn described the collaboration with the Gone Girl star. “I let Emily take full rein on the charity of her choice because I wanted her to be really inspired to give to a charity that she was passionate about and I know she’s done a lot of work with Planned Parenthood so I was definitely on board.”
The Emily dress (which will be available as of Dec. 7) will come in six colors and one print, made from deadstock fabric. About 100 dresses will be produced and made in downtown Los Angeles, Calif. at a retail price of $250. However, if you need more of an incentive to purchase, 25% of the proceeds will be donated to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
In case you didn’t know, Ratajkowski is on team Bernie Sanders.
