A Fashionable Fundraiser

Up for auction this week is an original Illustration by Christian Lacroix Pret-Porter Fall/Winter 1999-2000

I received an email this morning from Style.com that appealed to me on many levels. Having spent the vast majority of my adulthood as a professional and volunteer fundraiser I love to support a great cause. It’s also well known fact that I have a weakness for clothes and fashion. But being a woman and having lost family members to beast cancer is the main reason I want to support the efforts of Style.com in raising money for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.

For the next three weeks there will be eBay auctions of original illustrations featured in Fashion Illustrations by Fashion Designers, the recently published book by Laird Borrelli-Persson, senior features editor at Style.com.

All proceeds from the auctions directly benefit Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC), a worldwide charitable initiative of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. You can visit the slideshow for a preview of illustrations and dates to bid on each.
