Rihanna Auctions Designer Dress To Raise Funds For Black Lives Matter

An ASAI pink tie-dye dress Rihanna wore in an Instagram post last year 2019 is on sale for a limited time in order to raise funds for the Black Lives Matter movement and two charities.

The singer is among the list of celebrities vocally supporting the movement following the death of George Floyd last week, May 25, 2020, and now she has joined forces with the designer of the dress she wore in October in an effort to support the protesters.

A Sai Ta of ASAI says, “We will be producing this iconic dress exclusively for three charities.”

The item is available for $376 and can be purchased via direct message or by emailing info@asaita.co.uk. The sale will close on June 5, 2020. Proceeds will benefit Black Lives Matter, Solace Women’s Aid, and The Voice of Domestic Workers.

Meanwhile, Rihanna has taken to Twitter to announce her participation in #BlackOutTuesday, as celebrities and companies posted a plain black square on their social media pages and stepped away from posting.

She also announced that business operations at her Fenty, Fenty Beauty, and Savage X Fenty companies will be halted for the day.

“Fenty as a brand was created to elevate beauty, power and freedom,” a statement reads. “At this very moment racists are attempting to rip those values away from black people and we will not stand by and let that happen. We are too powerful, creative and resilient.”

“In support of the black community, we will be donating funds to Colour Of Change and Movement For Black Lives. We ask you to speak up, stand up, and pull up against racism and discrimination in all forms…”

“In solidarity with the black community, our employees, our friends, our families and our colleagues across industries we are proud to take part in #BlackoutTuesday. Fenty will be closing our business on Tuesday, June 2 – Globally. This is not a day off, this is a day to reflect and find ways to make real change, this is a day to #PullUp.”
