Frost Loves that Rachel Weisz, Davina McCall, Trinny Woodall, Sophie Dahl, Jasmine Guinness and Bay Garnett donate treasured pieces from their wardrobes to women’s charity Dress for Success with an exclusive online auction on Vestiaire Collective starting on December 21st
This Christmas, UK A-list celebrities Rachel Weisz, Davina McCall, Trinny Woodall, Sophie Dahl, Jasmine Guinness and super-stylist Bay Garnett are offering the opportunity to buy coveted designer pieces from their own personal collections. The celebrities are partnering with online fashion retailer VestiaireCollective.com, the destination online store for pre-loved high-end designer fashion and the platform to sell and update your wardrobe, with all proceeds from sales going to the charity, Dress for Success.
From the 21st December to the 31st of December, visitors to Vestiaire Collective will have the opportunity to buy one amazing item per day – with a new item becoming available for sale each day. Details of which items are available for purchase each day and at what time, will be available on the Vestiaire Collective site.
Proceeds from the sale will go entirely to Dress for Success – the charity that helps women on low incomes get back into employment and become financially independent. Dress for Success provide interview clothes and interview training to help women feel more confident and start to believe in their own ability to succeed and move on with their lives. One in two of the women the charity helps, gets the job.
Among the items being auctioned are Bay Garnett’s Joseph leopard fur wrap, Jasmine Guinness’ vintage leopard-print jacket, YSL heels from Trinny Woodall and a custom-made leather jacket, designed by Michelle Banarse for Davina McCall.
‘Whether you are a celebrity, a Vestiaire Collective community member or a client of Dress for Success, the confidence and self-esteem gained from smart clothing is something we are unified in understanding’ said Shannon Edwards, Managing Director, Vestiaire Collective UK. ‘We are grateful to our Style Advisor Bay Garnett for bringing together an inspiring group of women donating to our charitable partner, Dress for Success London’
‘In my years as a stylist I’ve seen the transformative impact of clothing on the self-esteem of even the most confident women in the world’, said stylist and Vestiaire Collective style advisor Bay Garnett, ‘so to be able to support an organisation that provides this type of head start to women in need is a great reward.’
For the opportunity to purchase one of these unique one-off pieces please log on to Vestiaire Collective on the 21st December to check out the sale www.vestiairecollective.com
Buyers will have until the 31st December to purchase a celebrity item and support a worthwhile cause – but you’ll need to be quick as there’s only one piece per day! With the New Year approaching we hope to help those looking for new opportunities to change their lives.
