Fashion designer and artist Johny Dar’s ‘Jeans for Refugees’ project, collaborating with 100 celebrities to raise funds for refugees worldwide

キャンドルウィックが日本のPR事務局として応援させていただいている、難民支援のためのプロジェクトをご紹介します。国際的に活躍するアーティスト兼デザイナーのジョニー・ダー氏が2016年に立ち上げた、国際的なチャリティプロジェクト “Jeans for Refugees”(難民支援のためのジーンズオークション)です。

We’d like to introduce ‘Jeans for Refugees’, a Johny Dar project and artistic fundraising initiative dedicated to helping refugees around the world. Johny Dar is an internationally acclaimed fashion designer and artist, and Candlewick is supporting this worthy cause by acting as the Japan PR representative office pro bono.




One hundred celebrities have come together to support the cause by donating their jeans to be painted by Johny Dar. Each pair of jeans will be made into an individual art piece and auctioned at a special fundraiser with all proceeds going towards IRC (International Rescue Committee) initiatives, helping millions of refugees worldwide. The ‘Jeans for Refugees’ initiative aims to spread a message through art, to empower people to collaborate for a common goal and create positive change, painting a new paradigm and inspiring a brighter world.

Here are some of the celebrities who are contributing their jeans to the project.




The painted jeans were shown on the runway at New York Fashion Week.



この後は10月24日- 30日の間、英国ロンドンにあるコンテンポラリー・アート専門の美術館、サーチ・ギャラリーで展覧され、オークションにかけられます。

From October 24th to 30th, the jeans will be exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery in London.



The online auction is open to anyone and will be receiving bids till October 30th. Please visit the Catawiki site to see the jeans for auction, and perhaps even make a bid for your favourite celebrity’s jeans!



Candlewick is proud to be supporting such a worthy cause, and is excited to see these fabulous pieces of art on display in London.
