Aventura Mall is proud to feature brands dedicated to making positive contributions to our world. In the wake of COVID-19, numerous brands with Aventura Mall have gone the extra mile to contribute to relief amidst the crisis. Here are a handful of admirable contributions:
Production at Carolina Herrera has shifted to support the creation of hospital gowns in collaboration with local health authorities. Every day, the brand’s team collects raw materials from specialized health institutions, uses a pattern that has been digitized to cut and tailor the garments, and delivers the final product for sterilization. The iconic designer plans to meet the changing needs of our doctors, hospitals, and nurses. You can watch a video of this incredible work on the brand’s Instagram account here.
Jimmy Choo recently launched a weekly “Choo Sketch” initiative on Instagram. Creative Director Sandra Choi invited the Jimmy Choo community to join in an artistic conversation by sketching their fantasy shoe designs. Sandra will be shortlisting ten sketches to be put to a final vote on the brand’s Instagram page @JimmyChoo, where winners will be announced on June 8th. The five finalists will then see their dream shoe brought to life as a capsule of five styles that will be part of a forthcoming collection with all proceeds donated to a charity within the Jimmy Choo Foundation. Additionally, each week a new sketch will be posted by Sandra that symbolizes a message of positivity, like this one, titled “Gratitude.”
