NEW KENNETH COLE BOOK: SOCIAL ACTIVISM AT ITS MOST CREATIVE

BY EMILY GLOCER

KC 1We all know that Kenneth Cole has become an icon for his irresistible shoes, handbags and clothing. His discerning design eye for fashion isn’t his only claim-to-fame. Cole’s efforts dedicated to social activism and philanthropic initiatives should not be overlooked. His new book, This is a Kenneth Cole Production (Rizzoli New York), captures the three-decade long career of this designer who has worked his way up from rags to riches, building his brand from a simple shoe business into a global powerhouse.

 

Screen shot 2013-10-08 at 10.02.46 AMCole has chosen to live a life of conscience, distinguishing himself as a fashion designer who appeals to those who sport the young, New York urban style and a philanthropist who uses his fashion advertisements to support social movements such as HIV/Aids community, same-sex marriage, gun control, and the homeless, to name a few. Lisa Birnbach wrote This is a Kenneth Cole Production with contributions from celebrity icons Bill Clinton, Diane Von Furstenberg, Robert Redford, Mark Seliger, and Joe Zee.

 

At $75, you can dive into Kenneth Cole’s compelling story, available at finer bookstores everywhere.
