Victoria Beckham has curated 25 outfits from her three-year-old daughter Harper’s wardrobe and donated them for sale as part of Save the Children’s Fashion Saves Lives sale.
The outfits will go on sale at the Mary’s Living & Giving shop for Save the Children in Primrose Hill from 10am on Thursday 18 June, with 100% of the money raised going to Save the Children’s work to end child deaths from preventable causes by 2030.
The complete outfits – including outerwear and shoes – put together by style icon Victoria Beckham, include items from designers such as Chloe, Roksanda Ilincic, Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Charlotte Olympia.
‘I am delighted to be supporting the wonderful work of Save the Children through the Fashion Saves Lives Sale,’ says Victoria. ‘As a mother, I passionately believe that all children, wherever they live, have the right to a happy, healthy life. Everyone out there can do their part by purchasing or donating, ensuring children all around the world have the opportunity of a brighter future.’
Currently 17,000 children die every day from preventable causes such as pneumonia and malaria due to a lack of adequate health services. Save the Children is backing a campaign to ensure that at the UN summit in September world leaders make a commitment to ensuring that by 2030, every child has the basic healthcare that they need to survive.
Fronted by Save the Children ambassadors Erin O’Connor and Mary Portas, the Fashion Saves Lives sale will be sold on the Mary’s Living & Giving eBay store for Save the Children for a 10 day period from 18-28 June.
Jade Jagger, Kate Moss, Alex Gerrard, Stanley Tucci and fellow spice Girl Melanie C have also donated items to the sale.
