Fashion Nova, a renowned global fashion brand, prides itself as a frontline company in giving back to the community. And during Women’s History Month, this trendy fashion house partnered with the famous American rapper, Megan Thee Stallion, to launch a female empowerment initiative labeled Women on Top.
This initiative was launched in line with Fashion Nova’s guiding principles. Richard Saghian, its founder and CEO, said, “At Fashion Nova, women empowerment and ongoing advocacy for diversity and inclusion have always been part of our guiding principles.”
The Women on Top initiative was run under the Fashion Nova Cares’ umbrella. It focused on supporting women-based and female-focused institutions, foundations, and businesses by offering women scholarships, grants, and donations.
The selected recipients received $25,000 or more.
Black Trans Femme Artists (BTFA) collective, a community-based organization, revolves around art production and preservation by Black trans nonbinary femmes and Black trans women. It provides them the support and resources they need to thrive.
This organization received donations to the tune of $25,000 from Fashion Nova’s Women on Top.
Fashion Nova affirmed this donation through a Facebook post on their official page, “At Fashion Nova, we believe every woman should have the opportunity to create meaningful art, but acknowledge that not every woman has equal access to the means to do so; @btfacollective is a community-based arts organization that centers the production and preservation of art by Black trans femmes by providing them with the resources and support necessary to thrive. Be sure to check out btfacollective.org where BTFA is soon to launch The List, an online database of Black trans femme artists around the world.”
“We believe the world will be a better place when all women are provided the opportunity to maximize their potential. This program was created to give women greater advantage as they pursue their passions,” said Saghian. This statement shows Fashion Nova’s willingness and commitment to seeing women succeed.
