Dita Designs for Fashion Against AIDS

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a piece of Dita Von Teese-designed fashion for some time now. The burlesque beauty’s Wonderbra line is sold exclusively in France and England and I’m not willing to max out my credit card on shipping fees for the stockings she’s designed for Secrets In Lace. So you can imagine my sheer delight when I found out that she’s designed a T-shirt for Fashion Against AIDS, a collaboration between H&M and Designer’s Against AIDS (DAA) to help fight the disease and raise awareness among youth.

The T-shirt, which features the iconic image of Dita’s red lips and arched brow, goes on sale May 28. Other artists who are collaborating with H&M on the collection include Katy Perry, NERD, Cyndi Lauper and Robyn. Twenty-five per cent of the sales price will be donated to youth HIV/AIDS awareness projects.
