German model Toni Garrn has collaborated with pre-owned high-fashion e-tailer Vestiaire Collective to open her friends’ wardrobes to the public.
Garrn has been hosting “supermodel flea markets” for three years. All the proceeds from them go to her charity, The Toni Garrn Foundation, which provides educational opportunities for girls in Chipinge in Zimbabwe. In 2015 she raised more than $20,000. In 2016 it was $60,000.
This is the event’s third year and this time around Garrn has curated a selection of designer pieces from her own wardrobe as well as the closets of Jess Hart, Kate Moss, Gisele Bündchen, Georgia Fowler, Alexa Chung and Poppy Delevingne.
This is a taste of what’s available: a one-of-a-kind signed denim jacket from Kate Moss, personalised Prada shoes from Gisele Bundchen and a vintage pink-velvet dress donated by Poppy Delevingne.
British designer Bella Freud has designed a limited-edition “GILR EMPOWER” T-shirt for the online sale. Shoppers can also expect pieces by Givenchy, Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Céline and Marc Jacobs.
The Toni Garrn Foundation funds the construction of girls-only dormitories, safe toilets and new classrooms in Zimbabwe. And education for parents, teachers and members of the community.
The donated pieces will be available for purchase in Australia online on November 3 until sold out.
