Victoria Beckham announced on Instagram this morning that she is selling off iconic pieces from her personal wardrobe on THEOUTNET.com in support of charity mothers2mothers.
With the help of her mother and sister, Victoria has selected 600 items to be auctioned online, including pieces from her early days with the Spice Girls, dresses she wore out with David Beckham, outfits from catwalk appearances, parties, awards shows and other events.
THE OUTNET, with the support of Christie’s who valued each piece, will host this private sale online from August 20th to the 25th, with all customers required to register from today.
Mothers2mothers trains, employs and empowers what they call Mentor Mothers – women living with HIV who educate expectant mothers about preventing the transmission of HIV to their baby. At the invitation of Anna Wintour, Beckham visited South Africa and met with mothers2mothers (m2m) founder Dr. Mitch Bessie in February.
“I laughed a lot when we were going through my wardrobe as the pieces hold so many happy memories for me, David and the children,” Victoria said of her preparations for the sale. “A lot of the clothes have been specially designed for me by the most talented designers and I’ve loved wearing them, however I now feel it’s someone else’s turn to enjoy them. We approached THE OUTNET as they have an incredible global reputation and are the perfect partner for us to build awareness and raise as much money as possible for Mothers2mothers.”
