The gorgeous oversized dove brooch worn by Lady Gaga to the inauguration of US President Joe Biden in January by the Couture house Schiaparelli will be sold to benefit the Born This Way Foundation, a non-profit organization that “supports the mental health of young people and works with them to create a kinder and braver world,” co-founded and led by Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta.
This brooch symbolizes peace, showing a dove carrying an olive branch, and it will be available in three different sizes.
“Like so many of us, I have been inspired by Lady Gaga and her Born This Way Foundation for years. Her inauguration performance, and the symbolic Dove Brooch, is a milestone in the history of this Maison and in my life. It is with great pride that we are able to contribute to Gaga’s foundation and the remarkable work it has done in the lives of young people everywhere, moving them towards more freedom, kindness, and love.”Daniel Roseberry, Creative Director at Schiaparelli.
“My daughter and I, along with the young people we work with every day, believe kindness is the way forward from the overlapping, ongoing crises of the last year and a half. We couldn’t be more grateful to have the proceeds from the Schiaparelli Dove, a beautiful symbol of hope and new beginnings, benefit our work and mission to build a kinder, braver world. With the support of Schiaparelli, we will continue to follow the lead of this aspirational, hopeful generation to build movements that address youth mental health and connect them to the resources they need to not only survive their lives, but thrive.”Cynthia Germanotta.
