H&M's star-studded FAA collection hits this Spring

Apr '11
Artists from the worlds of film and music are supporting Fashion Against AIDS (FAA) this Spring, H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB - H&M's and Designers Against AIDS's (DAA) mutual initiative to help spread the message of safe sex and HIV/AIDS prevention to young people around the globe.

Selma Blair, Penn Badgley, Keri Hilson, Sky Ferreira, Akon, Nikki Reed, Ginnifer Goodwin, Scissor Sisters, Shiloh Fernandez and The Misshapes are among the celebrities involved in this year's FAA collection, which for 2011 is a unisex range. The collection is available online and in H&M's Divided department from April 26th, with 25% of sales donated to the charity Designers Against AIDS (DAA) and various other international HIV/AIDS prevention projects. The FAA campaigns have so far raised more than 41 million Swedish krona.

“I think it's really fitting that this collection is androgynous in style since the disease affects both men and women. It's a universal thing and we are all in this together. It's a disease that can be avoided and it's especially tragic when our ignorance keeps us from safety.” Selma Blair.

“I've had a lot of friends who've been in the situation where their friends and family have been affected by HIV. As I travel the world, I see how much HIV affects people. It's not like we have a cure for HIV, we only have prevention. Make sure you are protected so that you don't ever have to worry about it. Ever.” Akon.

“Artists are an essential part of our campaigns, as they are role models for so many young people. Celebrities help to spread the message by speaking out about HIV/AIDS prevention. We're asking them to help spread the safe sex message on social media: Twitter, Facebook, their own websites and at their concerts too.” Ninette Murk, founder and creative director, DAA.

When the stars come together for H&M's Fashion Against AIDS campaign, it really shows this year's unisex collection at its best. Selma Blair wears a stylish Spring coat over a slogan T-shirt, while Penn Badgley wears an essential hoodie over his T-shirt. Shiloh Fernandez sports a khaki nylon parka, T-shirt and jeans; Ana Matronic of Scissor Sisters wears her peach version of the trench as a dress. Singer Keri Hilson has a cool slogan jumpsuit. It's all so versatile, and all helps spreading the message about HIV/AIDS prevention.
