If you follow pop culture, you will probably recognize famed model Karlie Kloss featured in the latest Versace campaign. What you probably don’t know, is that she founded an organization empowering women and girls in computer science. Kode with Klossy provides access to hands-on learning opportunities and community support that will help close the gender gaps in the tech industry. Through two scholarships: Camp Scholarship and Career Scholarship, Kode with Klossy aims to give women and girls the chance to explore and engage the wonderful world of code.
Mixing fashion with computer science, Versace is using the new iconic “it” bag – the Palazzo Empire – to help fund the Kode with Klossy cause. Versace is proud to announce that $100 from every Palazzo Empire handbag at all North American boutiques will be donated to Karlie Kloss’ scholarship fund from October 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.
