DUBAI: Ramadan is a month of giving back, and these four fashion brands have been using their platforms to support underprivileged people during the holy month. Behnoode The Italian bespoke brand, founded by designer Behnood Javaherpour in Naples in 2005, released a three-piece Ramadan collection for men. To celebrate the spirit of giving during the holy month, Javaherpour is donating all the proceeds from the sales to help displaced Ukrainian mothers and children who have fled their homeland during the war with Russia. The campaign also features a 27-year-old model, Nicolas, battling autism. Level Shoes The Dubai-based upscale store, selling a large selection of designer brand footwear, bags and accessories will donate to the charity foundations Nefsy and Tarahum in the UAE. Throughout the month of April, the leading luxury footwear retailer has been sharing a meal for every online and in-store purchase. The set target is 5,000 meals. Level Shoes Ramadan campaign.
