Billy Reid is one of the nicest fashion designers we've met. We got to know him before he received all of his accolades. If you haven't heard, 2010 was an epic year for Reid. In February he won GQ's Best New Menswear Designer in America award and nine months later in November the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.
Despite his success Reid remains humble and grateful for everything he has. Case in point, Reid who lives in Florence, Alabama has teamed up with the American Red Cross to assist his fellow residents of The South. All of the proceeds of the $38 limited edition Rise t-shirt will go to the Red Cross' Tornado Disaster Relief Fund. The shirts are available for guys and gals. You can pick up one (or several) at any of the six Billy Reid stores across the country and of course online. Giving back is so on trend. -Benjamin Liong Setiawan
