Badgley Mischka rallies to the cause with the sale of a series of illustrations
May 11, 2020
Observing stay-at-home measures in Palm Beach, Florida, Mark Badgley and James Mischka, founders and designers of the American fashion brand, have taken advantage of their time of social distancing to produce a series of illustrations on the theme of the ongoing global health crisis. Having been shared on Instagram and the brand's website, the illustrations are now being sold in an online auction that is set to run until May 17. Proceeds from the sale will be donated to the charity Feeding America.
Mark Badgley and James Mischka have created no less than 35 illustrations to support and encourage those who are battling the coronavirus around the world with a creative and artistic endeavor. The series of illustrations, which is on display on the brand's Instagram, is now the focus of an online auction. All of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to the charity Feeding America, which is working hard to provide food to vulnerable populations who risk going hungry during the pandemic.
The 35 illustrations can be viewed in the brand's online store (Badgleymischka.com). Those who wish to obtain one of these works simply have to click on the "Place Bid" button for an individual illustration, and they will be automatically redirected to an online auction organized by eBay for Charity. Once they are sold, the illustrations, which have a starting price of 100 dollars, will be personalized before being framed and shipped by Badgley Mischka.
Focusing on the theme of the global health crisis, the works highlight emotions and feelings that many of us have experienced in the current period. One of the more recent entitled "Breathe" shows a young woman assuming a Zen posture while wearing a glamorous mini-dress, "Don't Forget Your Mask" shows another equally elegant woman wearing a mask that matches her outfit while examining a butterfly. A third, "Back Off, Covid-19" shows a slender model in a glamorous backless evening gown.
