Stella McCartney will receive an award from the David Lynch Foundation
British designer Stella McCartney and executive director of the American Council of Fashion Designers Fern Mallis will receive prizes from the fund of director David Lynch (David Lynch Foundation). According to the representatives of the Foundation, their contribution to the fashion industry and support of women who found themselves in difficult life situations were noted.
Stella McCartney and Fern Mullis will receive their awards on May 8 as part of the second annual Women of Vision dinner.
The event will also collect funds that the fund will send to help women and children who face domestic violence and sexual harassment from family members. The sponsor of the dinner was the jewelry brand Alex and Ani. Together with him, Lynch created the Meditating Eye collection, part of the proceeds from which it also goes to charity.
David Lynch Foundation was founded in 2005 and provides assistance to people who survived physical and psychological violence, veterans of war, homeless and imprisoned prisons.
The work of the foundation began in the 1970s, when David Lynch, struggling with his own shyness during the interview, began to engage in transcendental meditation. “People are constantly experiencing fatigue,” says the director. – If you work only for money and do not feel joy, life simply passes by. Only when you enjoy what you do, your life becomes full of meaning. ” Lynch argues that one way to achieve a state of satisfaction from work is meditation. For her, you do not need to give up everything, you do not need to join any club, it has nothing to do with religion. “Negative emotions and thoughts block the flow of ideas,” Lynch explains. “Immersion to deeper levels of intelligence gives unrestricted freedom.” Transcendental meditation is practiced by many Hollywood celebrities: Liv Tyler, Cameron Diaz, Naomi Watts, Clint Eastwood and many other stars. Tom Hanks, for example, meditates himself and helps cope with the post-traumatic syndrome of the military, who visited Iraq. “Celebrities are the same people and they do not want to suffer,” he later explained the popularity of meditation among the stars.
In 2005, the director founded a foundation that not only teaches meditation, but also deals with charity – helping veterans, refugees, victims of domestic violence. The Lynch Foundation is supported by many Hollywood stars – Jane Fonda, Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood.
