This is about a collection designed by Toni Garrn for CLOSED. The sales of these jeans will contribute to help children in Africa to a better education with PLAN INTERNATIONAL. Toni Garrn is PLAN INTERNATIONAL’s ambassador for the worldwide campaign “Because I am a Girl”.
“Why did you pick this particular project with Plan International?
In Burkina Faso I saw that girls without education did not have the opportunity to lead a self-determined life. I know from my own life how import education is for that. Plan’s project “Improved primary school education for girls” helps them to become independent. For me it is a heartfelt wish to improve the situation of girls and young women. I want to do all that I can for that cause. As the ambassador for the worldwide campaign ‘Because I’m a Girl’ from Plan international I am hoping to do many more projects of this kind.”
Both originated from Hamburg, Toni Garrn and Closed are the perfect match. After having worked together for the first time in 2008 for one of her first campaigns, the Supermodel and the contemporary Denim label team up again in order to create a design cooperation, which contributes to a charity project run by Plan International.
