TV personality-turned-fashion designer, Angela Simmons and Team USA’s 4-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Sanya Richards-Ross recently co-hosted the official launch of their anticipated luxury faux fur line, Foofi & Bella. Simmons and Richards-Ross hosted the exclusive Winter preview at Technogym’s flagship SoHo Store to benefit Neyo’s “The Compound Foundation”. The Compound Foundation aims to create opportunities for youth in foster care and group homes. All guests were encouraged to donate an unwrapped toy upon entry.
Combining their love for fashion and commitment to empower young girls to boldly chase their dreams, Simmons and Richards-Ross remain “like-minded and passionately motivated to leave a lasting impact as entrepreneurs and make a difference in [their] communities,” says Simmons, CEO of Foofi & Bella.
“Foofi & Bella embodies the individual’s call to live ethically and responsibly. You don’t have to sacrifice style for it,” adds Richards-Ross, CMO for Foofi & Bella.
The collection sources 100% animal-free acrylic and polyester blends for chic, fashionable alternatives to traditional fur. The designs pay realistic homage to mink, suede, lynx and shearling. The winter collection is playful, energetic, cozy and versatile, authentically embodying the style and personal philosophy of its founders. The inaugural collection will be available for pre-order on December 14 on www.foofiandbella.com. Check out a video from the event below!
