It’s CULTED with your Friday NEWSRUSH.
First up, Zara Rahim, former communications director for Vogue, is organising an online sample sale to raise funds for the BLM movement and COVID-19 support.
Over 40 brands will participate, including Gucci, Prada and Pyer Moss, with 100% of proceeds going to Movement for Black lives and the National Domestic Workers Alliance. The Good Buys sample sale launches mid-July. Find out more on the initiative’s Instagram, and thegoodbuys.org.
Next up, TikTok has formed a Creator Diversity Collective to bring together creators from different backgrounds to help ensure greater levels of inclusion and representation on the platform. Members of the collective so far include Nabela Noor, Cristian Dennis and Kane Caples to name a few.
In other news, Gucci Mane has tweeted that he’s getting his own line at Gucci. At the moment the collab hasn’t been confirmed but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled.
And to end this morning’s updates, ASICS and GmbH’s third GEL-NANDI 360 collab launches this weekend. The new sneakers will be available from 27th June and come in 2 colourways that are perfect for summer.
It’s Sam with CULTED. Have a great Friday.
