lanvin for h&m charity auction
There was madness in H&M stores around the world earlier this week when the Lanvin for H&M range was launched. There were even reports of a stabbing in a NYC queue, though these were later proved false – turns out the only victims were of the fashion variety.
If you’re not Lanvin-ed out, you might like to check out the charity auction related to the launch. Alber Elbaz customised looks from the H&M range to create one-off haute couture pieces for the auction and there are also original, signed sketches by Elbaz available for you to bid on.
Each piece is sponsored by a fashion blog and all proceeds will go to the H&M UNICEF All the Children project. If this blog was to sponsor a piece, it would be the fabulous sketch pictured to the right (which is actually sponsored by El Fashionista). Bidding currently stands at $1400.
All bids close at 11:59 PM CET on Friday. With prices for the dresses comparable to those listed on eBay for store-bought pieces, I know I’d feel much better about sending money to support children’s rights than lining the pockets of a greedy seller.
