Both my Mom and I worship Maison Martin Margiela. The Belgian fashion house's influence in fashion cannot be ignored. Its revolutionary designs and conceptual shows have served as references for the next crop of fashion designers. Aside from this, Margiela is known for actively supporting the fight against AIDS. The Margiela AIDS Charity Tee is undoubtedly one of Margiela's most iconic pieces. It was first produced in Fall/Winter 2003. Since then, it has been seasonally reproduced in different colorways. Part of the proceeds go to Aides, a French organization that aides people afflicted with HIV.

The classic AIDS Charity Tee reads "There is more action to be done to fight AIDS than to wear this T-shirt but it's a good start." Who doesn't love the idea of fashion with a cause, right? Certainly not Lola A who fully supports the fight agains AIDS!
