The 40-year old Victoria Beckham is now teaming up with Net-A-Porter.com’s site TheOutnet.com to sell more than 600 items she won’t be wearing anymore, and help the less fortunate with the fundraiser.
“Every single piece that I have put in to be sold brought back a lot of memories,” she explained in an accompanying video. “A lot of really, really happy memories of myself and David, of myself and the children, of different events that I’ve been to. A lot of these pieces have been made especially for me, by the designers; these haven’t all have been bought off the shelf.”
The sale will take place from August 20-25, but potential customers need to sign up via the website to register for their chance to shop.
All of the proceeds will be donated to mothers2mothers, a non-profit organization that trains, employs and empowers mothers living with HIV.
“As a woman, we have a responsibility to help and support other women, to do what we can do to help,” says the mother of four, who visited the mothers2mothers charity in South Africa.
Auction house Christie’s valued the clothing, and an auction featuring 10 of Beckham’s most iconic pieces will also take place via sealed bids and feature the white dress by Dolce & Gabbana that she wore to the MTV Music Awards in 2003.
Back in November 2013 the Beckhams donated some of their unwanted designer items to the Red Cross Charity Shop in West London.
