Designer clothes from the wardrobes of uber-celebs Elton John and David Furnish are to be sold in Hove to raise money for a local HIV care centre.
The clothes will be the first items to be sold at a new charity shop being opened by The Sussex Beacon in George Street in Hove in early April with shoes (sizes 8 and 9) coats, jackets, suits, shirts, trousers, tops and t-shirts all up for grabs, from designers including Alexander McQueen, Versace, Chanel, Prada and Burberry. Prices will start from £20.
The clothes have been donated by the Elton John Aids Foundation and all funds raised will go directly to the Sussex Beacon, which provides care and support to people living with HIV.
The sale, ‘Out of the Closet’, takes place on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 April with any remaining items being sold on eBay or via the charity’s Brighton shop.
Kat Williams, CEO of the Sussex Beacon said:
“We are incredibly grateful to EJAF for this spectacular donation. We are keen to maximise its potential, and have decided to launch our own exclusive sale to coincide with the opening of our new shop in Hove. This is a one off opportunity to buy some items from an exclusive collection of flamboyant and beautiful designer clothes, whilst benefiting a local charity.”
