This post is a little different – not beauty related but for a really good cause!
High Fashion Society have teamed up with a host of celebrities and raided their wardrobes in search of pre-loved vintage designer items to raise money for Kids Company (www.kidsco.org.uk) for the Celeb Wardrobe Raid 2013.
These one-of-a-kind celebrity donations will be sold from the 25th February to the 17th of March. You can get your hands on a Sienna Miller vintage kimono, or rock a Nigella classic coat all to raise vital funds and awareness for Kids Company, a charity dedicated to helping vulnerable children in London.
High Fashion Society is supported by celebrities such as Sienna Miller, Melanie C, Fearne Cotton, Nigella Lawson and Lorraine Kelly to name a few. All proceeds made will go towards care and support of deprived and at risk Kids Company children in the capital. The best bit is that the starting prices will be set at a snip of the original value, so you really could bag a bargain while raising money to help Kids Company.
The bidding goes live from the 11th February and runs until the 3rd of March, but don’t worry if you end up being outbid, you can still do your bit by donating any pre-owned and pre-loved items of your own on the site – come on, you know you’re never going to wear those shoes/coat/hat/bag/scarf ever again.
The auction is live on High Fashion Society from the 25th February and runs until the 17th of March.
