Fashion saves lives - Victoria Beckham donates daughter's outfits in aid of Save the Children

Victoria Beckham donates daughter Harper's outfits to ‘Fashion Saves Lives’ Sale in aid of Save The Children.

Wednesday, 10 June 2015 - 2:19pm
Twenty-five, specially curated outfits, pulled together by world renowned designer and mum Victoria Beckham, from the wardrobe of arguably the most stylish little girl in the world, Harper Beckham, are available for purchase as part of Save the Children’s Fashion Saves Lives sale.  
 
The beautiful outfits will be available for the public to buy at the Mary’s Living & Giving shop for Save the Children in Primrose Hill, London - from 10am on Thursday 18th June.  One hundred per cent of the money raised will go towards Save the Children’s work to end child deaths from preventable causes by 2030.
 
The complete outfits - including outerwear and shoes - put together by style icon Victoria Beckham from Harper’s wardrobe, include items from designers such as Chloe, Roksanda Ilincic, Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Charlotte Olympia. 
 
Victoria Beckham said: 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.  Everyone out there can do their part by purchasing or donating, ensuring children all around the world have the opportunity of a brighter future.
 
Currently 17,000 children die every day from preventable causes such as pneumonia and malaria due to a lack of adequate health services.  Save the children is backing a campaign to ensure that at the UN summit in September world leaders make a commitment to ensuring that by 2030, every child has the basic healthcare that they need to survive – no matter who or where they are. 
 
Fronted by Save the Children ambassadors Erin O’Connor and Mary Portas, the Fashion Saves Lives sale  will be sold on the Mary’s Living & Giving eBay store for Save the Children for a ten day period from 18th - 28th June
