KAMI learned that Solenn Heussaff has been lenting her talent for a good cause in the past. Now, she is doing another special collaboration former actress and HOPE founder and President, Nanette Medved-Po.
Solenn was approached by Nanette to help her create designs for the exclusive Hope in a Shirt collection and she recalled,
Actually, she called me and asked me ‘cause she knows that I'm very much into art, that I love drawing.”
Nanette was inspired to help build a better future for the Filipino kids and said,
“Their company works in building classrooms for the children so when she called me do the collaboration, of course I couldn't say no because that's something I love to do, art. At the same time, I'm helping for education for the kids in the Philippines. Even in my own small way."
Their t-shirt is made out of 100% recycled bottles. They had it printed with an exclusive artwork that Solenn painted. This project is more of an awareness-raising exercise not just for building public school classrooms but also for recycling.
Solenn added how much she believes in this project and shared,
“I'm very much into their advocacy so I thought it was a fun project to work on and she just said basically we have shirts. Each t-shirt is made out of 11 plastic bottles and it's actually really soft, you'll be surprised. When I tell my friends there's no cotton, 100% plastic bottles, they're really shocked."
When Solenn was asked how she came up with the designs of the shirts? She said,
“It's really just the art focusing on the art. I basically drew a kid and flowers because when you give education to a child they will blossom into something bigger and better and flowers is the symbol of beauty and blossoming and that's how I came up with the drawing.”
