Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu teamed up with 23 designers to create a limited-edition line of clothing and accessories sold to benefit Born Free, an organization dedicated to ending mother-to-child HIV transmission in sub-Saharan Africa. "As a busy artist and now a busy mother, I never take for granted how fortunate it is to have healthy and happy children," Mutu explained. "Being able to help eradicate mother-to-fetus HIV transmission moves the most inner part of me, the little girl who always wanted to draw and speak about the world through images."
Mutu contributed two prints based on her artwork, which have become the textiles used throughout the fashion line.
