100% of Holiday Party Collection Will be Donated to Nonprofit Baby2Baby; Exclusive Resort Collection to Follow
Today, children’s fashion brand, Janie and Jack, debuts their newest collection with celebrated fashion designer and entrepreneur, Rachel Zoe. A two-collection partnership, which launches with the Rachel Zoe x Janie and Jack Party Collection and follows with chic Resort Collection, features clothing and accessories inspired by Zoe’s iconic signature style, including gold and sparkle embellishments, texture and statement silhouettes. The Party Collection offers glamorous styles for girls and boys to ensure they are dressed for those special holiday occasions. In addition, 100% of net proceeds from the Party Collection will be donated to Baby2Baby*, a nonprofit organization that provides children living in poverty with basic necessities, and of which Zoe is a proud board member.
Baby2Baby, a non-profit organization led by Co-Presidents Kelly Sawyer Patricof and Norah Weinstein, provides children living in poverty, ages 0-12 years, with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves. In the last 8 years, Baby2Baby has distributed over 70 million items, including 40 million diapers to children in homeless shelters, domestic violence programs, foster care, hospitals and underserved schools as well as children who have lost everything in the wake of disaster. Every year, Baby2Baby serves hundreds of thousands of children across the country.
Janie and Jack is a design house with every kid at its heart—because individual style starts early. Each season collections feature modern twists on classic fashion. Janie and Jack is known for family moments, thoughtful details and memorable gifts.
“Rachel Zoe is such a renowned force in the fashion industry – and as a mom of two boys, she definitely knows how to blend comfort with style,” said Shelly Walsh, SVP and General Manager, Janie and Jack. “The Party and Resort Collections combine Rachel’s exceptional taste and glamour with Janie and Jack’s modern twist on classic fashion. We’re proud to be continued supporters of Baby2Baby and offer our customers the opportunity to give back to this inspiring organization and help children in need this holiday season.”
The Holiday Party Collection offers 38 pieces of clothing and accessories, available in sizes 12-18 months to 12 years, with prices ranging from $18-$169. From a gold lurex maxi dress, metallic cheetah pant suit and rose gold lurex jumpsuit to accessories like a metallic turban, glitter cheetah print booties and faux fur wristlet, each design will make girls feel chic and ready to celebrate. The boys’ pieces are standouts too, from velveteen and wool tuxedos to satin neckties and a dapper fedora, all still allowing them to be comfortable.
“Creating these collections with Janie and Jack has truly been such a dream. I have always wished to bring my design and glamour to children’s wear. This collection includes all my favorite design elements with metallics, sparkle and luxurious fabrics that are easily wearable for the most active little ones. To make this design collaboration even more special, Janie and Jack is donating 100% of net proceeds from our Party Collection to Baby2Baby which is an organization I am so proud to be a part of. It is infinitely rewarding to know this collection is giving back, especially during this time of year.” – Rachel Zoe
