A letter from our CEO on the true meaning of the holidays.

Hey there.

The holiday season, December especially so, is seen as a time of frivolity. Parties and social activities and so much shopping! Our consumer-compelled calendars are now decorated with new excuses to shop–Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and now China’s Single’s Day offering abundant opportunities to buy more!

At Fame and Partners, we encourage some frivolity but we also want to remember what else is important; that happiness can come from both that shiny package arriving and also from a bonding moment with friends. From a sparkly selfie alongside a charitable gesture. From that dress you bought new… but also that dress you refurbished. We actively encourage women to dive deeper at this time of year; to pair the indulgence of the season with philanthropy; to remember that more is not always more and to dress up and give back.

For every sale made on fameandpartners.com, we donate $5 to women’s empowerment charities in partnership with UN Women, Plan International, and Akilah. After your purchase, you can even choose where you’d like your $5 donation to go–it could help end violence against women (UN Women), keep young girls in school (Plan International), or provide education for a woman in a developing country (Akilah).

You can shop our holiday collection here and empower women the world over, one dress at a time. Let’s dress up and give back.
