At tonight’s Fashion for Action benefit for Housing Works, the New York-based charity that runs secondhand shops to raise money to advocate for the homeless and those living with HIV/AIDS, there’ll be plenty of fashion on offer—more than $1 million worth of donated clothing and beauty products from labels like Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, and Michael Kors. But as Housing Works’ shops are known to be some of the city’s best stores for thrifting your apartment a great new decor piece, too, the nonprofit also commissioned a few one-of-a-kind home goods. Designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen of Elizabeth and James, Doo-Ri Chung of Doo.Ri, and jeweler Kenneth Jay Lane are among those who’ve decked out vases in Swarovski Elements crystals. The vases, on auction from December 6 to 20 at Shophousingworks.com, will be on display at tonight’s event; Style.com has the exclusive first look.
