International Women’s Day may have been yesterday, but March is Women’s History Month and it’s just getting started. On Monday (March 8), fashion lifestyle brand Fashion Nova and rapper Megan Thee Stallion announced that they’re teaming up for “Women On Top,” a new initiative supporting women entrepreneurs and women doing inspirational things.
Until March 31, Fashion Nova Cares and the rapper will be spotlighting and giving away $25,000 or more to “inspirational women doing great things.” A total of $1M will be donated to various, preselected women, entrepreneurs, and organizations.
“I’m excited to collaborate with Fashion Nova Cares on the Women on Top initiative and be part of giving one million dollars to support women-led businesses and organizations,” said Stallion in the official press release. “These donations are life-changing and will help women of all ages get one step closer to making their dreams a reality.”
“At Fashion Nova, women empowerment and ongoing advocacy for diversity and inclusion have always been part of our guiding principles,” said Richard Saghian, Founder and CEO of Fashion Nova. “We believe the world will be a better place when all women are provided the opportunity to maximize their potential. This program was created to give women greater advantage as they pursue their passions.”
Recipients will be announced on Fashion Nova Cares initiative’s official website. Last year, Fashion Nova partnered up with Cardi B to donate a total of $1M to support people who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of 1000 people were given $1,000 each. You can find read the names and their words of thanks on Fashion Nova’s website.
On the fashion front, Megan launched her very own Fashion Nova collection last November to bring more representation to the popular clothing brand. “I just realized how big of a lack of representation there is for curvier girls, or taller girls, or girls with bigger feet,” shared in an interview. “Everybody is not just a cookie cutter size, so I just want to make sure that starting with this collab we have better representation with just women in general.”
