Ilfenesh Hadera delivers a manifesto dedicated to women, celebrating Anne Klien’s visionary and timeless quote, “Clothes Won’t Change the World. The Women Who Wear Them, Will”
Iconic women’s fashion brand ANNE KLEIN has returned to the new New York Fashion Week, presenting a timely and timeless video on CFDA’s Runway360 platform and simultaneously on IMG’s NYFW.com. The presentation highlighted the heritage of the ANNE KLEIN brand, narrated by actor, activist, and humanitarian, Ilfenesh Hadera who delivered a manifesto dedicated to women, celebrating the brand founder’s visionary and timeless quote, “Clothes Won’t Change the World. The Women Who Wear Them, Will.”
“Every day I’m made proud by the strength, compassion, vision and selflessness of the women in both my community and around the world,” said Ilfenesh Hadera. “I’m perpetually in awe of, though never surprised by, our ability to be the change we want to see in the world. Anne Klein was one such woman and I’m honoured to be a part of this celebration of her legacy.”
More than 50 years later, Anne Klein’s famous words are still inspiring women. Her legacy of not only purposefully styling designs, but her trailblazing spirit and vision of empowerment are more relevant than ever. Her Granddaughter, Jesse Gre Rubinstein, who now serves as the brand’s Ambassador, opened the presentation to share her Grandmother’s enduring imprint.
“Anne Klein was often first, and always put women first,” stated Rubinstein, “Her first introduction of separates changed American Fashion and liberated the way women dressed forever. She was the first to create sophisticated styles in all sizes, for all ages, true today as the brand serves all women all over the world.”
The See It Now, Buy It Now Collection is shown in the five-plus minute video introduced editors and consumers alike to a Fall 2020 capsule collection with bold prints and styles at accessible price points. The collection look book on the CFDA site is entirely shoppable and links directly to the new AnneKlein.com e-commerce website.
New exclusives on the site beginning 1 October, will also highlight Anne Klein’s partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), in tribute to the brand’s late founder. Anne Klein, unfortunately, passed due to breast cancer in 1974. This collection is a celebration of her life, vision, and to power important science forward.
