Christian Siriano is doing his bit to help end animal poaching.
The famed fashion designer launched his very first line of non-leather totes, carryalls, and clutches on Monday in a star-studded affair at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California.
The Morocco-themed handbag line comes with an affordable price tag of $98-$350. For every piece sold, the designer will donate a portion to anti-poaching organizations.
Siriano gives credit to his friend, actress and animal activist Alicia Silverstone, for the inspiration.
“She turned me on to Year of the Elephant, which is about supporting non-poaching,” he said in an interview. “Thousands of elephants are killed every year just for their ivory, so for every bag and charm sold, we’re donating to organizations working to end poaching.”
Photos of the entire collection will soon be available at christiansiriano.com.
Also in attendance in the event are supermodel Heidi Klum, Kelly Osborne, Lydia Hurst, Brad Walsh, and many more.
