New York, NY (CNS) – Italian luxury goods company Gucci is designing a limited-edition watch in support of R&B songstress Mary J. Blige’s charity, the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now.
According to Fashion Week Daily, Gucci creative director Frida Giannini has designed a limited-edition black PVD twirl watch for the foundation. The watch features a face framed in black diamonds and will have a commemorative FFAWN engraving on the back of its rotating case.
It will make its debut at Gucci’s Fifth Avenue store on September 16, and will be available to the public at the company’s boutiques and select department stores nationwide the next day. A portion of its $1,895 price will be donated to FFAWN.
FFAWN aims to help women gain the confidence and skills they need to reach their full individual potential. Blige founded the charity with marketing pioneer Steve Stoute in 2007.
Meanwhile, Blige will next be seen in the Tyler Perry film “I Can Do Bad All By Myself.” She will also appear on “American Idol” as a guest judge.
