Breast cancer is a serious health problem that impacts millions of people across the world every year. Thankfully, breast cancer awareness has become a common concern for a wide variety of people, from high school athletes, all the way up to the President of the United States.
As is to be expected, various celebrities have also decided to do their part in helping rid the world of this destructive disease. One of the most recent of these celebrities was Kate Hudson.
This beautiful young actress is one of the most philanthropic celebrities in Hollywood, and she decided to focus her fashion firm, Fabletics, on the fight against breast cancer.
Fabletics focuses primarily on creating a variety of leisure wear, and is now working with the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Her pairing helped her get chosen as the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer ambassador for the year.
This new role has her working to create a line that women will want to wear, with much of the proceedings going to help benefit breast cancer research groups on Fabletics. She will be working to use her fashion group to help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer in a positive and constructive way.
When asked on the pairing, Hudson said: “It’s a no-brainer…I think every person has had an experience, or a friend, or parent or themselves, that has been diagnosed with breast cancer. When you think about it, it’s very scary, but we’ve come so far…We’ve got more and more survivors, but it’s something that’s still very much a part of our lives.”
What can fans of Fabletics expect from this new fashion line? Right now, it looks like it will contain one pair of capri leggings, a bralette, and two tank tops. The clothes here are relatively simple, for comfort’s sake, and currently shaded dark shades of pink. Hudson wanted to avoid bright shades that might be hard on the eye.
Pink is one of the main colors associated with breast cancer awareness, but Hudson wanted a “…pink with some depth to it,” in order to showcase the serious nature of breast cancer. Anything much lighter would seem too trite or “loud” for the purpose of this particular line.
In celebration of her new role and Fabletics new focus on fighting breast cancer, Hudson and her mother, Goldie Hawn, dyed their hair pink. To many, this was seem as a simple publicity stunt. However, Hudson and Hawn have years of experience working on projects like this.
As a result, it’s easy to see that this one hits close to home for both of them. Hopefully, her line is a success and raises some desperately needed funds for breast cancer research.
