Iman Teams with Modelinia to Introduce New Bracelet In Support of Somalia

Yesterday, the beautiful Iman attended the Modelinia event alongside fellow supermodels. Iman & Modelinia teamed up to introduce their new Beautiful Friends Forever (BFF) Bracelet by nOir Jewelry. The bracelet is designed to unite to raise awareness for the devastating drought and famine in Somalia. 100% of the proceeds from the sales of these bracelets will be donated to Save the Children, an on the ground charity currently saving the lives of those affected by the drought.

The bracelets are designed using the colors of the Somalian flag and are currently available for $35 at www.noirjewelry.com. On September 12th they will also be available on endless.com and at Curve Boutiques in New York and Los Angeles.

 All the models were excited to kick off Fashion Week with a philanthropic focus.
“Back when I was a model we used to joke about Fashion Week in New York because it always looked like the United Nations Summit because girls descend on New York from all different corners of the world. So I thought models should be given back their voices,” remarked Iman on the significant amount of models joining the movement [source]. 

Be sure to keep an eye out throughout Fashion Week as more models show their support by wearing the Modelinia BFF Somalia bracelets. You can purchase a bracelet here, I'll definitely be getting mine :o)

*sidenote: I remember using these plastic lanyards (the material the bracelets are made of) to make key-chains in middle school, it's funny how everything comes back full circle ;o)
