Kathryn Wilson’s new charity garments

Women’s footwear brand Kathryn Wilson is teaming up once again with the Ronald McDonald House Charity New Zealand to raise money for families with sick children.

Wilson has released a limited edition set of sweaters inspired by her SS18 range. The range was made in collaboration with the Nope Sisters who a renown for the strong social messages they incorporate in their apparel designs. The Wellington-based sister design duo has tackled issues such as sexual abuse, youth suicide and breast cancer awareness in their previous designs, and this new partnership is very much in touch with their brand's mission. The new collection has been manufactured by a sustainable Canadian outlet which was hand chosen for the project by the Nope Sisters, who feel strongly about sustainable processes and renewable energy.

The sweaters come in four bold colours: navy, white, pink and grey, and the collection are limited to 100 pieces. The sweaters retail at $150, and of that $50 from each sweater will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charity. Wilson will be raising $5,000 for families in need, which is sure to brighten up the festive period for those who are suffering.

Wilson has been an ambassador for the Ronald McDonald House Charity for many years and has contributed to a variety of auctions and catwalk events to raise money and awareness for the organization. “I’m always so pleased to work the Ronald McDonald House. Being able to contribute to giving children staying at the Ronald McDonald House and their families a Christmas experience or a special treat is something we are honoured to support,” said Wilson in an official statement.

The new sweaters are available from Friday 30th November via Kathryn Wilson’s online store and her Auckland retail boutiques.
