Empowering messages dominated the runways at New York fashion week this month. We saw breast cancer survivors bravely display their scars on the catwalk, strong feminist statements from the likes of Prabal Gurung and Christian Siriano, and a diverse range of models of all ages, sizes, and races.
Designer Lela Rose also used the runway to showcase a special cause. Alongside accessories designer Jennifer Behr, Rose launched a line of hair accessories that not only look ultra-chic, but also gives back to the community: A portion of the sales will be donated to Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union, two organizations both women are extremely passionate about. “As women and women business owners, it’s important to stand up and support causes we believe in,” Behr tells Allure. “Both of these organizations are doing critical work and it’s so critical to support them.”
The Jennifer Behr x Lela Rose collab features three headbands inspired by Lela Rose’s fall 2017 collection. “We picked a classic shape and created the pieces with her extraordinary fabrics of embroidered tulips and super fun textures,” says Behr. There’s a navy and tulip printed headband, perfect for sprucing up a simple sundress or a shirt-and-denim combo; a gold tinsel headband that can easily complement any evening look; and a black feather headband that Mandy Moore recently wore to the Marchesa show.
Not only will these headbands add the perfect finishing touch to your look, but you’ll wear these with pride knowing that your purchase made a difference. The line is available now at lelarose.com for $265 each. Take a look at the entire Jennifer Behr x Lela Rose FW17 collab below.
