Schön! supports ‘designers against aids’

‘DESIGNERS AGAINST AIDS’ is a non-profit organisation that promotes AIDS awareness in the international media and towards the general public, more specifically towards young people in the industralised countries using elements from pop culture (music, fashion, design, arts, sports, film, celebrities etc) as channels of communication. They recently opened their first education center IHAEC in Antwerp, where young people can learn how to make creative safe sex campaigns.

DAA was born in Belgium but is now active all over the world and objectively strives to get the subject of HIV/AIDS back into the international media, as lately it has become a forgotten disease, especially in the western world. Their messages are: ‘Prevention is the only cure for HIV/AIDS‘ (protect yourself and your partner) and ‘Know your status’ (get tested).

We at Schön! Recognise the great work that goes on within DAA and hope that you too will visit the website, click on the links to local AIDS organisations and learn more about the disease. The most important tool for DAA is the website that is shown on every item, in press releases and publications and that constitutes a platform with links to local AIDS organizations. So take a look and follow the link below to donate to DAA!

I DONT LIKE MONDAYS, has coupled up with DESIGNERS AGAINST AIDS, in their latest IDLM GALLERY project, which showcased on November 30, 2011, at The IDLM GALLERY is an evolving project focused on offering true rarities of fashion and supporting the creators behind them. Each collaborative project provides an exclusive showcase for one-of-a-kind or ultra-limited edition garment art, with 50% of sales being donated to DESIGNERS AGAINST AIDS. AS I DONT LIKE MONDAYS always aims for designers who push the boundaries of fashion, these artists go one step further and blur the lines between art and apparel.
