WWD On What To Wear At 100

-------



Over the course of a century in a print, Women’s Wear Daily has had given a ton to the designers it covers. And for its centennial celebration, those designers are giving back—and doing a turn for charity, no less. Starting tomorrow at 11:59 p.m., the WWD@100 Auction launches online, featuring exclusive, one-of-a-kind items sold to benefit the good cause of each house’s choosing. Got a free wall in your apartment? Try John Galliano’s 10′-wide mural (top), inspired by his Fall ’10 Dior couture collection (approx. value $15,000, benefitting the Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Foundation). Worn out that Motorcycle bag? There’s Nicolas Ghesquière’s re-imagined “Papier” in hand-painted python (above left, approx. value $2,761.70—sticklers for precision over at Balenciaga!—benefitting AMFAR). And if you’ve got an occasion, there are dresses, coats, and bags from Armani, Burberry, Calvin, Dolce, Donna, Lanvin (above right) and many, many more. The only downside? The virtual gavel won’t fall in time to wear your newly-gotten gains to the paper’s gala celebration tomorrow night.

The online auction takes place at www.charitybuzz.com/wwd from 11:59 p.m. on November 2 through November 18.
