Here at LOOK HQ, we love it when charity and fashion come together, so we’ll definitely be getting involved in Save The Children’s ‘Bag To Save A Life’ appeal tomorrow. Supported by supermodel Erin O’Connor, the charity has teamed up with celebs including Samatha Cameron, Sienna Miller and Florence Welch to host a designer bag auction on Friday 25 November. Samantha Cameron donated a Jimmy Choo, Sienna Miller gave a Miu Miu bag and Gemma Arterton handed over a patent Prada number.
And if that wasn’t enough to give you the bidding bug, there are also bags from Julia Restoin-Roitfeld
, Georgia May Jagger
and designers including Christian Louboutin, Moschino and Jason Wu. The best bit is that the starting prices will be set at a quarter of the original value, so you really could bag (excuse the pun) a bargain while raising money to help Save The Children deliver life-saving healthcare to some of the world’s poorest countries.
The auction goes live tomorrow and runs until Sunday 4 December, but don’t worry if you end up being outbid, you can still do your bit by donating any unwanted bags – come on, we know you’ve got at least one – to any Save The Children store in the UK. We’ve got to warn you, we’re not letting Sienna’s
Miu Miu go without a fight! GG
