One of fashion's greatest icons is teaming up with one of it's top designers to raise money for charity. Sarah Jessica Parker
is partnering with Kenneth Cole
to design a handbag to raise money for amfAR
, a charity dedicated to the fight against AIDS.
The two fashion stars are bringing the message of amfAR to 2013 Fashion Week with the limited edition evening bag, which will be auctioned on February 6 at the New York amfAR Gala. The gold-dusted snake skin bag will then make its runway debut the following day at the Kenneth Cole fashion show.
Inspired by the idea that every woman should be safe and stylish, the bag is etched with the words "We're All Potential Carriers" and includes a condom inside.
The stylish bag has many features including a snake chain that can be tucked inside the handbag for convenience, plenty of wallet room and a wrist strap. The bag also contains a gunmetal frame with Sarah Jessica Parker's name inscribed on it and will retail for $1,000!

"It's been an amazing experience to collaborate with Kenneth Cole on the design of a handbag supporting amfAR," says Parker. "I'm thrilled this bag will help raise money and awareness for the 30 million people living with HIV and AIDS."
Cole is no stranger to the fight on AIDS. As the Chairman of amfAR, Cole has already designed a limited edition watch
that supports AIDS awareness. Cole also will be donating $1, up to $30,000, to AIDS research during the live stream of his runway show during Fashion Week.
