Victoria Beckham & THE OUTNET.COM Present A Charity Sale To Benefit mothers2mothers

Victoria Beckham and THE OUTNET.COM have partnered to sell more than 600 items of her clothing in aid of the charity, mothers2mothers.

In February this year, following an invitation from Anna Wintour and American Vogue to visit South Africa, Victoria met with mothers2mothers (m2m) founder Dr. Mitch Besser. The charity trains, employs and empowers Mentor Mothers, who are mothers living with HIV, in order to educate them on how to prevent the transmission of HIV from mothers to babies and improve the health of women and their families. Victoria was so moved by the experience that she wanted to do all she could to raise money and awareness.

“After spending just a few days with these remarkable women and learning more about the charity from Mitch, and his lovely wife Annie Lennox, I wanted to do as much as I could. It really was a life-changing experience; I’ve never experienced anything like it”, said Victoria

The designer felt that a sale of items from her wardrobe could be an incredibly powerful way to raise both money and awareness. With help from her mother and sister, Victoria carefully selected iconic pieces from her wardrobe – pieces from her early days with the Spice Girls, that she wore out with David Beckham, and from catwalk appearances, parties, awards shows and other events that have been heavily documented and photographed by the world’s press.

“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. 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.”

The Victoria Beckham Charity Sale for mothers2mothers will be available exclusively at www.theoutnet.com/vbcharitysale from August 20th-25th, 2014.

    Awww! And this is why I really love VB. This is a very good charity effort on both both their parts. Can’t wait to see the outfits Victoria chooses.

    Also, please note there is no crazy posing in the pic below. Hallelujah, it can be done!!!

    This is an outstanding cause and she deserves kudos for this. My mind is boggled by the fact that she still has all these clothes–She must own a climate-controlled warehouse somewhere. Imagine what it would be like to wander around in there.

    She is such a smart wonderful woman, really growing into her own the older she gets. I just adore her more and more.

    So Vogue had to invite her to be involved initially with this charity? And the only people that could buy this stuff are size 0 petite women or crazy fans?

    It is interesting she didn’t do this with her own label in a variety of sizes…

      I think the idea is that people will buy the clothes as collectibles or investment pieces, not to wear (in the same way people buy one of Princess Di’s dresses).

      She should make more money selling off her old designer clothes (and ‘famous’ spice girls costumes) than pieces from her own label.
