The Ultimate Fashion-Forward Gift That Gives Back this Holiday Season
Star Wars, Target
have teamed up with a handful of the industry’s leading digital influencers and bloggers from Foray Collective
to style and sport the limited-edition range of upcoming “Force 4 Fashion” t-shirts
This fashion-meets-fundraising initiative is inspired by the themes of rebellion in the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story film, which revolves around the idea of ordinary people who do something extraordinary. Through Foray Collective, a leading influencer marketing agency, a selection of the most in-demand bloggers and style trendsetters were tapped, each of whom are changing the face of the digital industry. They have each rebelled against a traditional path and forged their own force for change in this ever-evolving digital landscape.
These ten top digital influencers each put their unique spin on styling these t-shirts in an exclusive shoot in Downtown LA, as each are “fashion rebels” in their own right.
The exclusive t-shirts are available exclusively at Target and Target.com, and are in support of UNICEF’s Kid Power Program. For every shirt sold, $5 will be donated to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, up to $1 million, which will help UNICEF improve the lives of children around the world.
Modeliste caught up with some of our all-time favorite influencers and found out how they rebelled against a traditional path and are forging their own future in the ever-evolving digital landscape.
“Working a desk job was never for me. I have always loved fashion and travel, and could never stay in one place at the same time. Technology has given me the ability to express my creativity everywhere that I am.”
“I chose to rebel against a traditional path because I felt like there was always more I could be doing to feed my creative side. I always wanted to do something that not everyone else did, and blogging serves as a free and creative space for me to do as I please.”
Saul Rasco, Trend Styled
“I chose to rebel against the traditional career path after realizing that going against the grain has a bigger impact on what I believe it means to be successful. Creating, impacting, and influencing the world through my own digital ideas and style is what makes me feel accomplished every day.”
“Growing up, I had the traditional 9-5 as soon as I graduated from college. After about 4 days, I knew something was off. I lasted about a year at the job and never really felt fulfilled. I would sit and daydream of doing something that I actually loved. So, I grew some balls and quit the 9-5 to pursue my dreams. To say it was the best decision I ever made would be an understatement. I now love what I do, who I work with, and consider myself extremely successful in all aspects of my life.”
“I chose to rebel because I wanted a job that gave me the freedom to do what I love every day. Not taking a traditional career path allowed me to work hard immediately for my goals. It gave me the opportunity to express myself creatively, meet amazing people whilst simultaneously promoting causes and projects I believe in. I have never looked back.”
“I’ve always marched to the beat of my own drum. It’s who I have always been. Choosing a career where I could set the rules and be COMPLETELY ME in the process, was a no brainer!”
