For almost 20 years, October has been Breast Cancer Awareness month, bringing light to a cause close to many of our hearts. Statistically breast cancer is currently the most common type of cancer contracted, however, each year the month is dedicated to educating men and women about the disease, and raising money to fund research into a cure.
With the pink ribbon as its symbol, the colour has become synonymous with the charity and so on Friday, 24th October, we swapped our classic purple for a lighter shade of fuchsia and showed our support for the Wear it Pink initiative.
STYLIGHTers from across all departments turned out to make a pink wave of support. With a donation box collecting 435,00 Euros from each and every one of us, STYLIGHT topped up the box with a company donation of 565,00 Euros, which will be split between the different countries we represent.
With fashion always at the forefront of our daily life, we wanted to take the opportunity to show our support (and style!) by both looking good and doing good. So join us by binning the beige, saying goodbye to grey, and wearing it pink!
