"It's a real honour to be able to contribute in my own way to this year's Witchery White Shirt Campaign. I am surrounded by many beautiful women in my life who provide me with support, strength and protection, and in turn, I hope that the shirt I have designed can offer the same to those who are drawn to it," expressed Maticevski.
Whilst the shirt will bear the Maticevski and Witchery logo, it is a dedication to the countless namelss women who have fallen victim and fight this horrible disease.
