Fashion For Conservation Debuts Elephant-Inspired Collection to Raise Awareness for Poaching Crisis
Fashion for Conservation took to the runway to raise awareness and funds for African elephants. Presenting their Elephantasia campaign at London Fashion Week, Fashion For Conservation worked with 24 international designers to create unique, conscientious pieces.
The elephant—A majestic, elegant creature.
Gliding down the runway in whites, khaki greens, and gray and silver hues, the multitude of looks formed a cohesive collection despite the number of designers. From sophisticated elephant shapes and patterns to voluminous pieces to intricate details, the creativity and heart put into this cause is unmatched.
In the spirit of preserving one of nature's treasures, the collection brought together minds from all over the world, including: Kromagnon, Gabriela Rose, Amin Phillips, Autonomous Collection, Tatiana Shebelnik, Annafora, Re.ne(w), Free Mind, Gypset Girl, Dawnamatrix, J. Von Stratton, Meredith Allen, AS Fashion Ibiza, C.Nicol, Ashanti Renee, and more.
Elephantasia had everyone in a trance with its absolute breathtaking collection, reminding fashion week-goers that only we can protect the elephant.
Proceeds from Elephantasia's S/S '18 collection benefit the African Wildlife Foundation and Elephant Crisis Fund.
