When Victoria Beckham visited South Africa recently, it was a life-changing experience for the star.
The 40-year old met with the charity mothers2mothers while in the country, an organisation that empowers mothers living with HIV, and was so moved by their plight she decided to help raise money and awareness for them.
Lucky for us, that means access to her extensive fashion closet, with Beckham announcing plans to auction over 600 personal items in conjunction with THEOUTNET.com to raise funds for mothers2mothers.
"I laughed a lot when we were going through my wardrobe as the pieces hold so many happy memories for me, David and the children," said Beckham. "A lot of the clothes have been specially designed for me by the most talented designers and I've loved wearing them, however I now feel it's someone else's turn to enjoy them."
A host of iconic outfits will be up for sale, including the Dolce & Gabbana white gown Beckham wore to the 2003 MTV Music Video Awards and the yellow thigh-split Roberto Cavalli dress she wore to her and David Beckham's pre-World Cup party in 2006.
"We are thrilled to be working with Victoria Beckham and her team on this very exciting charity event," said Stephanie Phair, President of THEOUTNET.com. "From the start, THEOUTNET.com has defined itself by its strong relationships and collaborations with designers in luxury fashion and we are confident we can draw an enormous amount of interest for these iconic items and raise awareness for mothers2mothers."
The auction will take place between August 20-25, and users can sign up now for the chance to take part.
