When Diane von Furstenberg speaks, people tend to listen. And hopefully her new PSA for an online auction benefiting the victims of Hurricane Sandy will get people to open their wallets, too.
The CharityBuzz auction is a partnership between the CFDA and Vogue and includes some "amazing fashion experiences," von Furstenberg says in the video. "You can have lunch with me, attend a fashion show with Anna Wintour, or meet Michael Kors." Proceeds will go to the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City and other relief organizations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
Current bidding on a week-long stay at Tommy Hilfiger's private estate in Mustique stands at $21,000, and one donor has ponied up $16,000 to attend next year's Met Gala with Wintour and Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton. But there's still time to bid on those and other lots, like the chance to attend Victoria Beckham's Fall 2013 show, or to take home the entire Prabal Gurung for Target collection before it reaches stores. The auction closes on Dec. 5.
