Victoria Beckham has donated 25 designer outfits of her daughter Harper Beckham to charity. The outfits -- by designers including Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Charlotte Olympia -- were on display at Mary's Living and Giving store in Primrose Hill, London, on Thursday. Outfits worn by Harper included outerwear and shoes. Fashion designer Victoria, 41, curated the range herself.
The clothes went for auction as part of Save the Children’s “Fashion Saves Lives” sale. Fans lined up for hours to get their hands on some of the toddler's most fashionable clothes. The first one was snapped up in five minutes, with thousands of dollars already raised. TV presenter Mary Portas was on hand to help shoppers, according to Mirror UK.
Starting at £150 ($238), the tiny high-fashion pieces run into the thousands. All the outfits can be seen on the Save the Children website.
“I am delighted to be supporting the wonderful work of Save the Children through the ‘Fashion Saves Lives’ sale. As a mother, I passionately believe that all children, wherever they live, have the right to a happy, healthy life.” She added that everyone can do their part by purchasing or donating, ensuring children all around the world have the opportunity of a brighter future.
A Stella McCartney dress, Charlotte Olympia kitty heels and mini Doc Martens were snatched off the shelves within minutes of going on sale. Fans hoping to snap up a piece from the mini fashionista’s wardrobe had queued around the block, desperate to snap up the celebrity tot’s castoffs. Doors opened at 10 a.m. for the sale, with all proceeds going to the charity.
In between running her popular fashion brand and raising her family, Victoria Beckham is currently focused on raising awareness for Save the Children. The former Spice Girl has donated lots of clothes to charity before, including a host of shoes for Typhoon Haiyan aid in 2013 and more than 600 pieces from her own wardrobe to the Mothers2mothers HIV charity last year. Daughter Harper will turn 4 years old next month.
