Angry Elephant 1969: Fashion With A Cause



Hello Fashionistas! 
Hope everyone had a fashionating weekend. I certainly did, thanks to Angry Elephant 1969! What's an Angry Elephant? It's a Loxodonta elephant that is currently being poached for its ivory in Africa as you read this blog post. The founders of Angry Elephant created an apparel line to bring awareness of the poaching crisis (up to 25,000 elephants are killed each year for ivory) affecting the African Loxodonta elephant and the destruction of its natural habitat. The company's products include T-shirts, hoodies, headgear, and wrist bands which promote the message of the Angry Elephant Clothing line. After I was approached by one of the founders, I was fascinated by the information I read on their website and after doing my own research. Yes, clothes/fashion is always a  huge interest for me, but I was more interested in the cause. Now, to put the two together, feels really good. Please take the opportunity to visit the website and read about Angry Elephant's inception and what their mission and objectives are. Oh, did I mention, the t-shirts and sweatshirt I received were all made in the USA!








T-shirt: Thanks to Angry Elephant Clothing! 
Sweatshirt: Thanks to Angry Elephant Clothing!



I've teamed up with one of the founders of Angry Elephant Clothing to host a t-shirt styling competition (coming soon) featuring five (5) participants: Several fashion bloggers, models (one male) and a personal stylist featured on WJXT "Fashion 4ward" TV fashion segments. This will be a friendly competition to show the individual styles of each participant; they are allowed to create any look they like, whether it's an edgy look, corporate/business, casual, etc. Check back for more details on the competition, the participants and the prize package.


I have to thank my husband for helping me out with this one. He's not one for being in front of the camera so this really meant a lot when he said he would wear the sweatshirt and allow me to feature him on the blog. He's down with the cause! :-)


In addition to being sold online, Angry Elephant Clothing is now available in store at Tom Dick & Harry's - Manhattan, NY.
