Perry Ellis takes initiative to help clean up oil spill

Perry Ellis, the classic American sportswear brand, is acting to clean up the Gulf oil spill with an initiative that encompasses the fashion runways of New York and the laptops and mobile devices of consumers nation-wide.

Called Project Beach, the initiative aims to raise awareness and funds for the recovery from the largest oil spill in American history by tapping Perry Ellis' advertising, social media networks and upcoming fashion show. The brand has partnered with National Wildlife Federation (NWF) for the effort, which will support the organization's crucial Gulf Coast oil spill programs.

"The coast has always been home for the Perry Ellis brand. Whether winter or summer, our creative team takes inspiration from the beach, and as a Miami-based company, we appreciate life on the coast every day. We've also used the beach as a backdrop for our ad campaigns for decades," said Brett Dean, chief marketing officer of Perry Ellis International. "It's difficult to watch this disaster and not feel compelled to help. With this initiative, we have an opportunity to reach out to our customers and fans to help National Wildlife Federation toward a long-term solution for the Gulf Coast."

Perry Ellis' September 13 fashion show at New York's Lincoln Center will recognize NWF's Gulf Coast restoration work. In addition, Project Beach will become a significant component of the brand's upcoming events and advertising campaigns, with Perry Ellis heading to the Gulf Coast in coming months to shoot its Spring 2011 campaign—a first for the company.

"The work to restore the coastal habitats that sustain wildlife and people is just beginning," said Meri-Margaret Deoudes, senior director of corporate relations and special events for National Wildlife Federation. "We are most grateful for the Perry Ellis Project Beach campaign, to help support National Wildlife Federation's Gulf Oil Spill Restoration Fund."

NWF's Gulf Oil Spill Restoration Fund is designed to support short- and long-term volunteer teams, restoration of nesting and breeding grounds and public education about the oil spill and its impact on wildlife.
