ELLE Australia magazine has joined forces with Cotton On, creating a limited-edition necklace and bracelet with proceeds helping the Cotton On Foundation fund its projects in Southern Uganda.
The charitable collaboration came about when members from the ELLE team, including editor Justin Cullen, feature’s editor Vanessa Lawrence and lifestyle director Jana Johnson-O’Toole, joined the Cotton On Foundation on a trip to Mannya Villahe in Southern Uganda. The girls witnessed the work which has been done for the community, and learned about their plans for the future, and were so inspired that they created accessories to help fund its projects.
“We feel so lucky to have visited some of the areas where the Cotton On Foundation is making such a difference, and we couldn’t wait to come home, tell the stories of the people we met and the things we saw, and enlist our readers to help the cause,” Justine told the Cotton On Foundation.
The glossy’s entire team was behind the design process of the two exclusive pieces, with a result sure to please fashion lovers (models Phoebe Tonkin, Lara Bingle and Cheyenne Tozzi are already repping the pieces) and benefit Southern Ugandans in the process.
The ELLE x Cotton On Foundation jewellery will be sold in selected Australian Cotton On stores and online.
