THE Wexford native put his resources to a use he is firmly behind.
Irish fashion designer Richard Malone has put his money where his mouth is and lent his support to the Repeal the 8th movement in his home country.
The 26-year-old Wexford man was spotted today exhibiting a 'read, react, repeal' collection of messages on the windows of Selfridges in London to spread awareness of the cause.
Messages written on the windows among hearts and equal signs read women's rights equal human rights.
Both he and another unnamed woman in photos captured of the protest wore white t-shirts emblazoned 'read, react, repeal' making it crystal clear what their stances on Ireland's restrictive abortion laws are.

This is not the first time Mr Malone has supported the Repeal the 8th movement while working in the UK, as the London-based designer was spotted in 2016 sporting a t-shirt with the slogan.
