The Holiday Spirit: Charity + Fashion = never goes out of style

W Hotels is partnering with the CFDA to create a limited edition 2009 Calendar that is designed to spark creativity in the new year. Designed to resemble a sketchbook, the calendar even has blank sketch pages in the back and room to hold a pencil on the bottom. Perfect for those spontaneous moments of inspiration.

Twelve designers were asked to share an exclusive image that has inspired and energized their creative process. They include:

Simon Alcantara
Matt Murphy
Marcus Wainwright, Rag & Bone
MJ Marcasiano
Robin Renzi, Me & Ro
Rozae Nichols
Keanan Duffty
Diane Von Furstenberg
Sue Stemp
Victoria Bartlett
Charles Nolan

The calendar will retail for $15 and will be available in early December through a special “Celebrate Package” at all W Hotels around the world, at W The Store locations and online at

100% of the proceeds will be donated to The CFDA Foundation, which raises funds for charitable initiatives and campaigns on behalf of the American industry’s designers. The CFDA’s ongoing philanthropic efforts include Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC), the fashion industry’s response to the devastating impact of breast cancer.
