Dubai-based international fashion house GlamOnYou joins its fashionable forces with Dubai Foundation for Women and Children (DFWAC) for an exclusive collaboration. GlamOnYou will sell t-shirts imprinted with the hand of Fatima also known as Hamsa, which in Arabic means number five; a popular sign in the Middle East, Africa and around the Mediterranean. The hand of Fatima is represented as an open palm which for many societies is considered ‘protection’ and also wards off the notion of the ‘evil eye’. The GlamOnYou T-Shirts will be produced in a wide range of colour combinations including; neons and glitter prints that will surely appeal to every fashionable trendsetter. With each sale of one of the shirts GlamOnYou will make a donation to DFWAC.
Nadine Arton, Founder and Designer of GlamOnYou explains,“following the success of our first ’Fashion for a Cause’ collaboration with a Dubai based non-profit organization I just knew we had to do it again. Having a family of my own, the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children is a cause close to my heart. I really wanted to do something that would raise awareness to their cause and get all trend setting, glamorous and fashionable ladies to be involved in some way.”
Established in 2007 by his Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minster of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, th Dubai Foundation for Women and Children (DFWAC) is the first licensed non-profit organization that provides shelter for victimized women and children in the UAE. These women and children are victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, child abuse and more. DFWAC also offers support services according with international human right laws and regulations. Through its counseling and support groups the center also hopes to put a halt to the escalation of violence and emotional abuse on women and children and try to put a stop to it.
Through the latest GlamOnYou ‘Fashion for a Cause’ t-shirts the fashion brand hopes to collect a good amount of money to go towards DFWAC and to raise awareness about the cause of the center and their efforts.
T-shirts are available in: ZINZIN Boutique, Mercato Mall, Accent, Wafi Mall and in the GlamOnYou Showroom and are priced at 275 AED.
