Posted on behalf of Hannah Taylor, Fashion Student at Ravensbourne:
I am raising money for Cancer Research UK, I will achieve this through a closed Fashion Auction which will take place in early May. This will be hosted at the new Ravensbourne building in Greenwich Peninsula, opposite the iconic O2 arena.
The reason that I am doing this is for my Final Major Project, I want to make a difference and not just something that will benefit me. Cancer Research is a charity which is close to my heart and to many others and affects all of us. The aim of the evening is to raise approx. £4,000. or more.
What I am after is established designers to donate their original sketchbook pages or Illustrations to the Auction. These will then be secretly bid on with all the proceeds going to Cancer Research UK on the night of the event. This will be advertised in local newspapers as well as the metro and online social medias.
The great thing about having an event like this is it has not be done before and there is no barrier or starting point for the amount a piece of work is worth, this is why the target of £4,000 is a rough estimate. To assist the Established designers sketches and Illustration I am also looking for Sketches and Illustrations by graduates from any University to also be in the auction to be auctioned upon as investments to those who bid on them.
Please contact me if you are interested in donating.
