Vestiaire Collective launches coronavirus charity sale
Vestiaire Collective, the online platform for pre-owned luxury fashion, has launched a charity sale to support the fight against coronavirus.
Vestiaire Collective has partnered with more than 50 influential celebrities, including Kate Moss, Rachel Weisz, Thandie Newton, Anna Dello Russo and Charlotte Tilbury, to offer luxury pieces from their wardrobes.
Some items were already sold on the first day of the sale such as leopard print faux fur coat from Kate Moss or a Penny Packham maxi dress from Charlotte Tilbury.
“We’re doing everything we can to combat the effects of the virus with our community, and to help fight it with charity fundraising,” the company said in a statement.
According to the company, all proceeds from the sale will be used to support hospitals and scientific research working on coronavirus, including the World Health Organization, the Italian Lombardia Region Fundraising, the France/Paris Hospitals Foundation and Madrid’s La Paz Hospital.
Founded in Paris in 2009, Vestiaire Collective now has more than 7 million members from more than 50 countries across Europe, the US, Asia and Australia, with 25,000 new items submitted every week.
