Collections for a Cause
Many bridal fashion leaders lent their collections to special causes this season. Rita Vinieris’s Fall 2019 collection presentation raised awareness to the importance of mental health and suicide prevention. A portion of the proceeds from this collection will be donated to Project Semicolon, a nonprofit organization that supports people with depression, addiction and thoughts of suicide. Other bridal designers and brands, including the Knot, Crate and Barrel and the designer Malia Mills, partnered with VOW, a new initiative aimed at ending the practice of child marriage globally. A portion of their proceeds will go to toward this mission.
