More than 600 items from Victoria Beckham’s personal wardrobe are about to see the light of a day – with the support of TheOutnet.com, the famous singer and style icon is to sell her clothing in aid of charity Mothers2mothers.
Mothers2mothers is a international non-profit organization that aims to train, employ and educate mothers who live with HIV on how to prevent the transmission of HIV from mothers to babies and improve the health of women and their families. Earlier this year, Beckham was kindly invited by Anna Wintour and American Vogue to South Africa in order to visit the charity base and meet the founder, Dr. Mitch Bessen.
“After spending just a few days with these remarkable women and learning more about the charity from Mitch and his lovely wife Annie Lennox, I wanted to do as much as I could,” Victoria said. “It really was a life-changing experience; I’ve never experienced anything like it.”
The selection of pieces that Beckham is going to contribute to the cause is truly impressive – it includes the most iconic pieces starting from her days as a Spice Girl, and then proceeding with gowns, shoes and jewellery Victoria sported on a red carpet of the major events, fashion parties and award shows. For example, the fashion icon picked the memorable white Dolce & Gabbana dress worn to the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards and the pre-World Cup 2006 party yellow Roberto Cavalli gown to help her raise “as much as possible” for a cause that stole her heart.
Victoria admitted she had quite a fun time decluttering her wardrobe, too. “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. 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.”
For the big spenders who are wishing to get a piece of Victoria and join her noble initiative, the charity sale for mothers2mothers will be available exclusively on TheOutnet.com from August 20 to 25, and the registration is already open.
