PoshPublic Aligns Art and Fashion with Charity to Create a New Format for Collaboration — Yoga Style

Crowdfunding Ground Zero, Planet Earth – November 26, 2015 – The Innovators at PoshPublic are determined to bring creative and caring people together to harness their collective talents. They aim to help the unfortunate, to boost the careers of artists and to make sure people look great while they do it.

This unique crowdfunding platform forms triangular, synergistic alliances between three separate parties who would otherwise be unlikely partners. The resulting synergy allows artists to crowdfund their work while building awareness for charities through the medium of quality, handcrafted items of clothing.

PoshPublic’s newest campaign features the work of three distinct artists presented on yoga pants. A big percentage of the sale of these artistic and stretchy garments then goes to benefit a charity of the individual artist’s choice. The American Cancer Society (ACS), the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund (NMCF), and Friends of the Orphans Canada (FOC) are about to be touched by the works of Gabriel Gault, Jabu and Amanda Morie.

Son of the NFL and the ACS

While Gabe is the son of former NFL wide receiver Willie Gault, he is a star in his own right. Gabe creates interesting and unique contemporary art using celebrity figures and pop culture icons. His skill and intuitive artistic talent lend themselves into depicting these images in ways never seen before. His impressive mastery of traditional media in a digital age is refreshing and inspiring. You can look at his artwork on his website at gabegault.com or follow him on Instagram @gabegault. PoshPublic has made this artwork accessible to you while benefiting a fantastic cause ACS, who for over 100 years, has led the fight against cancer through education, support, and fundraising. LA regional ACS chair and breast cancer survivor Cynthia Vant Hul attests: “Uniting with others gives us the power to make a real difference in the fight to end breast cancer.”

The Transformer and the NMCF

The artist Jabu describes his work as “Transformative Art” and the man’s work achieves exactly that. The South African native who lived through the Apartheid era brings happiness and color into what can often be an unfriendly world. His images will be splayed across sets of tensile yoga trousers as the wearers become nimble and healthy. Proceeds will benefit one of the legacies of Jabu’s fellow countryman Nelson Mandela. The NMCF was founded in 1995 and is “changing the way society treats its children and youth” by working with partners throughout South Africa.

Abstract Acrylics and the FOC

Multi Media painter Amanda Morie creates dazzling displays of color and design that have earned her widespread popularity and international recognition. Her detailed swathes of texture and color will decorate sets of flexible yoga slacks that are sure to make workouts dynamic and vibrant. Proceeds will benefit FOC, who provides direct financial assistance for children in developing countries including Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras and more.

Witness PoshPublic’s confluence of art and fashion as they combine strengths of two mediums to reach out to charities that make a difference in the world’s community.
