Obama X Saks X Blackwood
Jamaican-blooded handbag designer Brandon Blackwood was selected by The Obama Foundation and Saks to be part of their holiday window and fundraising efforts to support the Girls Opportunity Alliance (GOA), which seeks to continue Michelle Obama’s work of empowering adolescent girls around the world through education. With the purchase of a Brandon Blackwood bag, 100 per cent of the collection’s net proceeds from online sales on saks.com and at participating Saks Fifth Avenue stores will be donated to The Obama Foundation in support of the GOA through January 1, 2022.
