When is it possible that the most amazing experiences can be born out of the most tragic ones? Just ask the participating designers of the CFDA who donated some of the most otherworldly experiences for the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Fashion & Friends for Japan charity auction, which launches today on charity buzz.com. All the proceeds will benefit victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, which is an amazing cause but really—these are ah-mazing donations!
Among the 75 donations are a full week’s stay at CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg’s private home in the Bahamas (yes please); a tour of Vanity Fair’s offices that includes sitting in on a meeting in editor in chief Graydon Carter’s office and dinner for four at The Monkey Bar (sign me up) and a chance to experience Ralph Lauren’s Paris including tickets for “The Art of the Automobile: Masterpieces of the Ralph Lauren Collection.” (sure, why not?) Also, Vogue is offering an opportunity to meet Anna Wintour and attend a Vogue shoot and DKNY donated a VIP experience at Yankee Stadium when the Yankees play the Tampa Bay Rays on July 9, including a chance to meet Yankees manager Joe Girardi (Donna Karan herself would have been better but, you know).
And these are just a few! The auction is ongoing and donations for can still be made for this great cause so check out charitybuzz.com to bid and please, take us with you!
