HOLT RENFREW'S OLYMPIC ATHLETE GATHERING IN SUPPORT OF RIGHT TO PLAY!!


Just this Saturday I had a pleasure to join Holt Renfrew team & Olympic Athletes from Calgary who are supporting wonderful project.

Holt Renfrew has collaborated with internationally renowned New York brand, rag & bone to design an exclusive collection of totes to benefit Right To Play, a global organization that uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity. Through playing sports and games, Right To Play helps one million children weekly in more than 20 countries to build essential life skills and better futures, while driving lasting social change. Founded in 2000 by four-time Olympic gold medalist and social entrepreneur Johann Olav Koss, Right To Play is headquartered in Toronto, Canada.

The canvas ‘numbers’ totes, inspired by vintage competitive surf t-shirts, were designed exclusively for Holt Renfrew’s H Project and are available in three colours; black, cream and dark green, available for purchase beginning Friday, May 9 for $55 at Holt Renfrew stores across Canada.

By purchasing the totes, customers will help Holt Renfrew reach its goal of raising $100,000 for Right To Play.



Among Olympic Athletes were Jesse Lumsden, Helen Upperton, Gilmore Junio, Sam Edney, Roz Groenewoud and Brad Spence!!
Not only I was lucky to have briefly conversation with each of them - about fashion as well!:-) - but also at the end of my visit - I left Holt Renfrew in Calgary with nice white "specially signed" Rag&Bone tote bag!!!
Thanks @holtscalgary & @rag_bone!!
