When it comes to good causes at Christmas, I think I’m particularly keen to spread the word far and wide. Not that this shouldn’t be the case every day but there is something special about this time of year that makes us all reflect on the things we have to be thankful for, from family and friends to good fortune and even material goods. That’s why I’m pleased to share with you this morning a wonderful initiative from Vestiaire Collective.
Vestiaire Collective have just launched a celebrity auction to benefit a charity that is very near and dear to my heart – Dress for Success. This charity specifically helps women from low income families in getting back on their feet and becoming financially independent. Dress for Success not only makes sure these women receive proper interview training to help them with their job search, they also insure that they look their best for the interview itself by providing sophisticated interview attire. One in two of the women the charity helps, gets the job. THAT is an amazing statistic and I think you can see now why I’m particularly keen to show my support.
Now about this celebrity auction… Vestiaire Collective have teamed up with Rachel Weisz, Davina McCall, Trinny Woodall, Sophie Dahl, Jasmine Guinness, Jade Parfitt and Bay Garnett to create a lustworthy exclusive online auction. The celebrities have donated several treasured pieces from their very own wardrobes to be auctioned off to the highest bidder with all proceeds going to Dress for Success.
The auction will run for ten days, starting from today 21st December and running through the 31st of December. There will be one item on sale per day, launched each morning. You can expect to see Bay Garnett’s Joseph leopard fur wrap, Jade Parfitt’s beautiful Prada bag, YSL heels from Trinny Woodall and a custom-made leather jacket, designed by Michelle Banarse for Davina McCall…and many more.
