More than 50 years later, Anne Klein’s famous words are still inspiring women. “Clothes won’t change the world. The women who wear them will.” Serving women around the world with classic American style, the iconic fashion brand Anne Klein was founded in 1968 and returned to New York Fashion Week last week presenting a timely and timeless video on CFDA’s Runway360 platform and simultaneously on IMG’s NYFW.com. The presentation highlighted the heritage of the Anne Klein brand, narrated by actor, activist, and humanitarian, Ilfenesh Hadera.
Anne Klein’s legacy of not only purposefully styling designs, but her trailblazing spirit and vision of empowerment are more relevant than ever. Her Granddaughter, Jesse Gre Rubinstein, who now serves as the brand’s Ambassador, opened the presentation to share her Grandmother’s enduring imprint. The See It Now, Buy It Now Collection is shown in the five-plus minute video introduced editors and consumers alike to a Fall 2020 capsule collection with bold prints and styles at accessible price points.
The Fall 2020 collection tells the story of the Modern Anne Klein Woman. The collection look book on the CFDA site is entirely shoppable and links directly to the new AnneKlein.com ecommerce website. Starting October 1st, AnneKlein.com will also highlight Anne Klein’s partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), in tribute to the brand’s late founder. Anne Klein unfortunately passed due to breast cancer in 1974. This collection is a celebration of her life, vision, and to power important science forward.
