Rihanna, Timbaland and Brandish favourite, designer Henrk Vinskov are amongst the artists who have collaborated with H&M and Designers Against AIDS on a new collection of T-shirts and tops aimed at raising awareness of AIDS amongst 15-24 year olds.
I only hope we’re not getting fatigued with all these charity initiatives as some of the facts that this initiative is highlighting are quite galling and deserve attention: 50% of new infections are amongst 15-24 year olds; 12 million young people now carry the HIV virus; and every 15 seconds, a young person is infected. As Henrik’s T-shirt states: “Be Aware – It’s still happening”.
The collection launches in February and is good and cheap as you’d expect form H&M (£7.99 – £19.99). 25% of the profits go to helping prevent HIV infection around the world.
