Japan's biggest clothes retailer continues to take the lead in relief efforts following the country's earthquake and tsunami disaster, partnering with a star-studded cast of designers for a new t-shirt collection.

Uniqlo, whose CEO Tadashi Yanai already donated $12 million of his own money and a lot more in clothes and funds of his company, will release a range of ten new designs June 25.

Prints will consist of drawings and scripts, crafted by the likes of Lady Gaga, Karl Lagerfeld, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman, Lanvin's Alber Elbaz, Blake Lively, Charlize Theron, Cyndi Lauper, Victoria Beckham, and Orlando Bloom.

All proceeds of the t-shirts - retailing for $19.90 each - will benefit the Japanese Red Cross.
