Levi’s drops 6 new band tees for music industry charity, Support Act

Words by Fashion Journal

Supporting local artists when they need it most.

For the second year in a row, Levi’s has teamed up with Support Act to release a limited run of band tees in support of Australian music industry workers.

With 40% of musicians earning below minimum wage and five times more likely to suffer from depression, Support Act is providing financial assistance to people working in the music industry.

Designed by the Australian musicians themselves, net donations from the six new styles will be going straight to Support Act. The funds from last year’s initiative were large enough to help fund a 24-hour mental health and wellbeing helpline. The service continues to run today and is free, confidential and staffed by professional councillors.

With October being Mental Health Awareness month, it’s a great time to give back to the initiative helping out the artists and industry workers who create the soundtracks to our days. AusMusic t-shirt day is also coming up, so the timing could really not be better.

A number of local artists have jumped on board, designing exclusive shirts for the brand.

The lineup of artists who have designed the tees this year include shirts from Australian legends INXS and folk-pop sweethearts Angus and Julia Stone, as well as Tkay Maidza, Ruel, Parkway Drive and Ocean Alley.

The limited-edition Levi’s x Support Act collection is available online and in-store now, and you can access the wellbeing helpline here.
