As the hammer goes we are delighted to announce that the Stella X Smart Works Fashion Auction in association with Christie’s has made £77,000, with 100% of the proceeds going to Smart Works.
We want to say a big thank you to everyone for making this auction come to life. The tenacity, focus and skill of the teams at Stella and Christie’s has turned an idea into an incredible achievement.
And to the successful bidders and donors, today you have all played a part in another woman’s success story.
Our CEO Kate said:
“The partnership between Stella, Smart Works and Christie’s is a testament to what can be achieved in the most difficult of circumstances. We have loved watching the donations come in and can’t thank the donors and bidders enough for their generosity and for sharing our passion to help women to be their best. As we continue to navigate new challenges, we know more women than ever before will need our help and the extraordinary amount raised will ensure we can continue to reach those who need it most.”
We saw hundreds of bids across the last three weeks, with our most popular lot the Hermes Birkin bag, generously donated by Jane Birkin. In the end the amount realised was £35,000.
Thank you again to every person who worked so hard to make this auction come to life, it wouldn’t have been possible without you.
