United Colors of Benetton has created a limited edition orange dress and will donate the proceeds from its sales to gender equality organisation United Nations Women. The sweater dress is on sale for £109.90 via the retailer’s website.
Benetton has also unveiled a new campaign focusing on equal opportunities and non-discrimination to celebrate the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25.
Last month the company announced a €2m (£1.5m) five-year commitment aimed at supporting sustainable livelihoods for women in the readymade garment manufacturing sector, in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
Activities will include training and education, health and safety such as access to transport home from work, as well as offering access to additional financial resources through credit to help improve the livelihoods of women working in the textile and garment supply chain.
