Designers gettin' trashy
This fall, Danish design company VIPP has teamed up with supermodel Helena Christensen for the VIPP Charity Auction, a benefit for Food Bank For New York City and Chernobyl Children’s Project International. Leaders from the worlds of fashion, design, art and entertainment put a fashionable spin on the classic VIPP waste bin with customized creations sold in a silent auction benefiting the two charities. Selected from the ranks of the international creative set, the thirty-four participating designers include Bono, Todd Oldham, William Sofield and Karim Rashid, among others.
The bins will be displayed at The Conran Shop in New York City from September 4 - 17, when pre-bidding will begin. Those who wish to continue bidding will be able to do so at the silent auction on September 18th. This may be the only time you hear chic applied to trash!
