This month, the CFDA and online retailer Yoox are both doing their part to rally the fashion troops in order to raise relief funds for Japan. They’re offering some seriously great items that you’ll want to snag, and not only because it’s for a good cause.
Last week, the CFDA launched Fashion & Friends for Japan, an auction on charitybuzz.com that has already raised over $180,000. Today the second round of items went up for auction and they’re equally amazing as the first lots that included a customized PS1 bag.
Some highlights are a Vogue Japan photo shoot in Milan with Anna Dello Russo, a J.Crew Crewcuts photo shoot for your stylish child, and two coveted tickets to the spring 2012 Rodarte show.
The new lots will be available until May 5, and you still have time to bid on the first round of lots that will be up for auction until April 28.
In other cute fashion-for-a-cause news, Yoox.com teamed with eight international brands including Marni, Margiela, Y-3, and Moschino to create unique t-shirts centered around the theme “We Love Japan.” The designs sold out quickly earlier this month, but Yoox is re-releasing them tomorrow on yoox.com.
Both groups are donating 100% of the proceeds to aid recovery in Japan.
