Spice Girls launch limited
Following the announcement of the Spice Girls reunion tour last week, the foursome are now planning a fashion range.
During their appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, the girl band revealed that they are launching a limited edition clothing range which will include a T-shirt, sweatshirt and hoodie emblazoned with the hashtag #IWANNABEASPICEGIRL – a play on their 1996 hit single Wannabe.
The good news doesn’t stop there; Emma, Melanie C, Mel B and Geri also announced that 100 per cent of the proceeds from the collection will be donated to Comic Relief’s Gender Justice fund, which helps champion equality for women and girls in the UK.
The style evolution of the Spice Girls through the years
Comic Relief has been funding programmes tackling gender-based sexual and domestic violence, and supporting women and girl’s empowerment since it began in 1985.
It says that this money will help us to continue supporting organisations doing such fantastic work to help drive change.
“Equality and the movement of people power has always been at the heart of the band. It is about equality for all, ‘every boy and every girl’,” said the Spice Girls in a statement.
“We recently found out that charities focused on issues faced by women don’t get the funding that they desperately need, so launching a campaign to raise funds for these issues is incredibly important to us and an area we want to support.”
Similarly, Victoria Beckham – who isn’t joining the band on their reunion tour – launched her own Spice Girls charity T-shirt to help Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day back in April.
