MY SISTER Launches Exclusive Collaboration with Amber Tamblyn
November 17, 2017
Socially conscious clothing brand, MY SISTER announces the launch of the MY SISTER x AMBER TAMBLYN #ChoirUp Collection today.
Actress and women’s rights activist Amber Tamblyn teamed up with MY SISTER to design their latest collection of statement-making, female empowering apparel.
“Collaborating on this collection with MySister.org has been such a joy and inspiration,” says Tamblyn. “We live in an era where words have extreme power and lead directly to actions, often times violent or harmful actions against the bodies that identify themselves as women. A shirt collection can’t stop that from happening but it can empower those that it has happened to. I can’t think of a better way to share my poems and words with the world than with MySister.org which gives a portion of its proceeds to help survivors of sex trafficking. This collection is a small gesture in the world of sexual assault, harassment and rape but it is, hopefully, also a powerful one.“
The 6-piece contemporary collection features original poetry and statements from Amber to encourage women to #ChoirUp and use their voices to inspire change.
Her New York Times op-ed piece spurred a movement of women and Hollywood elite alike speaking up and naming their abusers.
Supported by Amy Schumer, Amy Poehler, Uzo Aduba, America Ferrera and more, 25% of proceeds from this collection will be donated to GEMS (http://www.gems-
to help young women and girls who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking exit the industry with support and resources.
Prices range from $16 – $78 and will be available on MY SISTER’s website beginning today (www.mysister.org).
