Giving Inspiration - Rachel Zoe

December 9th, 2011

The ViX Swimwear Giving Inspiration campaign is now in its third week of highlighting notable women and their philanthropic efforts in hopes of inspiring others to give back during the holiday season. Likewise, designer Paula Hermanny continues to work with her charity of choice, World Vision, as she has a special love for children around the globe. In keeping with the spirit of giving, we encourage you to share your charitable efforts and deeds of goodwill on the ViX Swimwear Giving Inspiration Facebook discussion post; we’ll be donating $100.00 for every comment received to further our support for kids in need.

Our previous feature on Donna Karan left us moved and ready to affect positive change. This week, we want to highlight the inspirational achievements of Rachel Zoe, a fashion maven and businesswoman in her own right. Originally from New Jersey, Rachel’s conquering of New York comes as a surprise since the future industry guru possessed no formal fashion training. She then moved onto Hollywood and with her styling prowess and trademark bohemian—meets—Old Hollywood flair, Rachel was immediately catapulted to the top of the celebrity fashion frenzy and became a household name.

That recognizable name has now lent itself to the several causes Rachel Zoe is passionate about, including the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). She is an avid supporter of raising awareness for early detection and treatment for ovarian cancer, plus a regular presence at OCRF campaigns, perhaps the most recognizable being Super Saturday. This Hamptons fundraiser is a renowned shopping sale with proceeds supporting the charity. Additionally, as a new mother, children are a special focus for Rachel. She supports orphanages through the World Child Project and just last month, attended Baby2Baby’s Winter Wonderland event, co-hosted with Huggies to help LA families in need with basics for newborn babies.

As an active participant in campaigns for a cause, Rachel Zoe continues to inspire us through her charitable efforts. We invite you to reflect on the spirit of giving and encourage others to give back this holiday season. Make sure to join us next week as we stay inspired and continue with the ViX Swimwear Giving Inspiration campaign.
