Missoni hieress Margherita wants to highlight one of her favourite causes, OrphanAid Africa, a non-profit organisation whose mission it is to help orphans and vulnerable children in Ghana, West Africa. To do this she's enlisted the help of some special friends to design special products that are ethical, beautiful and reflect Ghana's heritage, to be sold online exclusively at Yoox.com .
Rap mogul Damon Dash, his wife, U.S fashion designer Rachel Roy and Rachel Zoe are all on board as is Greek jewellery designer Ileana Makri, who has designed the first piece in this special collection, a rose pink 18ct gold and brown leather bracelet set with pave diamonds.
The limited edition design was, says, Makri, inspired by a design she found on an African fabric and the oval OrphanAid logo, while Margherita Missoni said of her new venture, I have chosen YOOX.COM because Im a great fan of online shopping." Aren't we all Margherita.
But we don't think this gorgeous bracelet will be online long so click now to shop.
