Visit Ralph Lauren’s Paris, DVF’s Bahamas, Or Elton John’s L.A.—For Japan-------
The CFDA is the latest group rallying its ranks to benefit Japan. Beginning today, its Fashion & Friends for Japan online auction goes live on CharityBuzz.com, where the offerings are one of a kind—to say the least.
Diane von Furstenberg has offered up a week’s stay at her private home in the Bahamas. More of an urban traveler? Take Paris at Ralph’s: two business-class tickets to the City of Light, two nights at the Bristol, dinner for two at Ralph’s, and a €1,000 shopping spree at Lauren’s Saint-Germain flagship (left). Domestic flyer? Try Elton John’s impenetrable Oscar party—with a friend.
Fashion designers being fashion designers, of course, there are plenty of opportunities to shop and style, too. Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez will help you personalize your own PS1. Rachel Zoe will take you to lunch for a style consultation. And if plastic best becomes you, good news: Mattel will create a Barbie doll in your own likeness. Doll, you could be big!
The auction runs today through April 28 at CharityBuzz.com.
