FASHION GIRLS FOR JAPAN

We weren’t going to miss the special two-day designer sample sale where 100% of the proceeds from the sales were going to the relief efforts organized by Japan Society’s JAPAN EARTHQUAKE and TSUNAMI RELIEF FUND, THE RED CORRS, AND NYC’S JAPAN EARTHQUAKE and TSUNAMI FUND.  Check out some of the pics below…..

先日ご紹介した、FASHION GIRLS FOR JAPAN。 NYのファッション業界で活躍している日本人の方々が中心となり、NYの100以上ものデザイナーさんを集結し、日本への義援金を募る合同サンプルセール。売上はすべて米国赤十字、ジャパンソサエティーを通して日本救援のため寄付されるとのことで参加してきました。

開催場所はThe Bowery Hotel。

The special event took place at the Bowery Terrace in the The Bowery Hotel.

We showed up at 11:00 AM sharp but as you can see, the line to get in was out of control.  But I guess you would expect that at such an event where you can find more than 6,000 hot items including clothing, shoes accessories and jewelry on the cheap and for a much needed cause.

4月2日の土曜日の朝11:00 am 開場。11時に行きましたが、もう既にすごい行列が出来ていました。。。。

Had to wait for one hour and half before we could finally get inside.

待つ事1時間半、ようやく開場に時は入れました!

The crowd!!!

開場のなかは、かなりの人でいっぱい。

Julie Gilhart (former fashion director of Barneys)

It was a huge crowd and under different circumstances, the experience may have been a little discouraging.  But this event was special.  Maybe because I am Japanese and this was about helping people back home, it felt good to just be there.

有名デザイナーさんたちがファッションショーで披露したお洋服やアクセサリーなど約6千点が半額になる2日間だけのこの特別サンプルセール。売上全てが義援金として寄付されました。すこしでも日本の復興の手助けが出来たらと思い、このイベントに参加してきました。本当に一日も早い復旧復興を心より願います。


GLOBAL RELIF EFFORT FOR JAPAN

NYのファッション業界でも東北関東大震災の被害者の支援に向けた寄付をということで、いろいろな形で義援金を募っています。その中からいくつかをご紹介したいと思います。本当に日本は世界中のみなさんからたくさんの愛情で支えられていることを感じます。そうした方々への感謝の気持ちと共に、今、私に出来る事を、出来る限りの支援をしたいと思っています。そして一日も早い復旧復興を心よりお祈り申し上げます。

The fashion community of New York has been organizing benefits, special products, and donations to help with the current humanitarian effort in Japan. I have listed a few interesting ones below if you are interested in helping out.

アメリカを代表するデザイナー、ラルフローレンでは胸と背中に「希望」と書かれたTシャツを発売。売上の100%を寄付しています。

Ralph Lauren “Help Japan” polos – 100% of the proceeds goes to assist Japan relief.

また、トリー・バーチでもWe ♥ Japanを掲げ、ハートと日本の日の丸をかわいくデザインしたTシャツを販売しています。こちらも売上の100%を米国赤十字を通して日本救援の為に寄付されます。

100% of the net proceeds of every Japan Relief T-shirt sold through September 15, 2011, will go to the American Red Cross to benefit the Japan earthquake and Pacific tsunami relief efforts

Tohoku Earthquake

3月11日(金曜)に発生した東北関東大地震により、被災された皆様、そしてその家族の方々に、心よりお見舞い申し上げます。

NYでも連日ニュースで大地震の被害状況ともに何度となく繰り返される大地震・津波の映像が報道されています。その映像を見るたびに本当に心が痛み、悲しみでいっぱいです。日本からは遠くは離れたNYにいる私ですが、私なりに出来るだけの支援をしてあげたいと思っています。

米最大の日米交流団体“ジャパン・ソサエティー”では先週末より「地震の被害者の支援に向けた寄付を」とのメッセージで、義援金を募っています。

詳しくは下記のウェブサイトをご参照ください。

We at TWILL NYC are extremely saddened by the loss of thousands of lives and colossal damages caused by one of the most powerful earthquakes and Tsunami that struck Japan last week.  We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the people of Japan, particularly  the victims and members of the bereaved families for their tragic losses and great suffering brought about by a combination of these natural disasters.

If you are interested in helping out, the Japan Society of New York has created a disaster relief fund to aid the victims of the Tohoku earthquake in Japan.  You can make an online donation by following the link below or sending a check to Japan Society at the address below.
