Two Sex and the City superfans are raising money for Cynthia Nixon’s gubernatorial campaign with a logo T-shirt dedicated to the actress’ iconic Sex and the City character, Miranda.
Back in September, Lauren Garroni and Chelsea Fairless — the duo behind the @everyoutfitonsatc Instagram account — began selling a white logo T-shirt with the words ‘We Should All Be Mirandas’ emblazoned across the front.
Now, they are re-releasing the item and pledging to donate 15 per cent of all sales to Nixon’s campaign for governor of New York.
Solidarity: Sex and the City superfans Lauren Garroni and Chelsea Fairless have created a line of ‘Miranda Solidarity’ clothing items including this ‘We Should All Be Mirandas’ T-shirt
Campaign: The duo first retailed the white logo t-shirt back in September 2017 but have re-released it ahead of Cynthia Nixon’s run for governor of New York
Inspiration: Dior’s ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ T-shirt inspired Garroni and Fairless
The shirt was made in the style of Dior’s now-iconic ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ T-shirt. The Dior tee itself, which retails for $710, was inspired by Chimamanda Ngozi’s book of the same name.
The idea for the Sex and the City version was born when Garroni and Fairless noticed that Miranda had started to eclipse Carrie in popularity among fans, who looking back on the show now realize Miranda was the ‘sanest’ of the bunch.
Garroni and Fairless told Refinery29 that at first, they considered themselves ‘Miranda apologists,’ since they figured more people were ‘Team Carrie.’
However, they soon realized ‘there were more of us out there than we thought.’
‘Although it shouldn’t be surprising, as we all relate to eating cake out of the garbage. #MirandaSolidarity is for all the girls who aspire to make partner by 35 and be the first of their group to buy their own apartment on the Upper West Side,’ they said.
Team Miranda: The pair run the popular @everyoutfitonsatc Instagram account and decided to create the t-shirt when they realized people weren’t as ‘Team Carrie’ as they thought
Goals: They have also detailed how, in hindsight, Miranda is the most identifiable character in SATC
Campaign trail: The $32 tee is on back-order, and 15 per cent of the proceeds will go towards Nixon’s campaign fund
After first selling it last fall, the duo is now re-releasing the same style in the wake of Nixon’s decision to run for Governor of New York.
Writing on their website that ‘it’s hard being a Miranda in the age of Trump and $700 feminist slogan tees,’ the ‘We Should All Be Miranda’ t-shirt retails for $32, and 15 per cent of sales will go towards Nixon’s campaign.
‘But if Mirandas ruled the world, the world would be a considerably less f*cked up place. We should all be Mirandas: smart, pragmatic, ambitious and unafraid to eat cake out of the garbage,’ they explained.
On back-order, the T-shirts are expected to ship on April 11. They are also selling a baby onsie in the same style for $30, as well as
‘We desperately need representatives who want a more equal New York and refuse to fund their campaigns with corporate contributions. Also, it’s [still] the Miranda thing to do,’ Garroni and Fairless added.
