The Wall Of Dolls exhibition

Fashion brands support the cause

If you’ve seen ELLE’s feminism campaign (if you haven’t, where have you been?), you’ll know that we feel strongly about women’s rights. So we were pleased to hear that more than 50 fashion brands and designers have teamed up with human rights organisation Intervita to create an exhibition in Milan to highlight and condemn violence against women.

The Wall Of Dolls, which was intentionally set up during the Milan Collections: Men shows to raise awareness among men, was created by Italian journalist Jo Squillo and a number of not-for-profit organisations, according to WWD.


Brands including Ermanno Scervino, Missoni and Etro have taken part by creating dolls to be included on a wall in the Cultural Center in Milan. Anyone is welcome to add a doll to the installation, and the wall is set to travel around Italy and other European cities – so stay tuned to see when it will be near you.
