Raising six children isn’t stopping Angelina Jolie from continuing to do amazing charity work.

Education Partnerships for Children of Conflicts is Jolie’s charity, and it will use 100% of the profits from The Style of Jolie for the primary school.

Procop added that it was "an honour to have the opportunity to be part of creating this line with Angie, as we both believe every child has right to an education." [
