“We were inspired by their mission and their important work and wanted to give back to their cause,” said Krasner. “We created the Dyer for JustWorld show shirt which features pops of JustWorld blue on Dyer’s signature white heritage show shirt. The JustWorld logo appears on the center back of the shirt to accent Dyer’s signature button back detail. With the sale of every JustWorld show shirt, fifteen percent of the proceeds will go directly back to the organization.”
“Dyer participated in the fashion show that we did at WEF two years ago and that’s how we first met,” said Sabrina Jurak, Sponsor and Event Coordinator for JustWorld International. “They sponsored a few looks from that show. Then they came back to us looking to do the show shirt. The shirts are beautiful. We are looking to do more co-branding in the future with Dyer.”
