The CFDA team has been pretty busy lately. Tuesday night was the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event and last night, they feted a huge Sandy relief sale, which is open to the public today until 8pm. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Wintour, Steven Kolb, and Tory Burch were in attendance. Even before arranging the sale, the CFDA put together an online auction, through which you can bid on things like a week long stay at Diane von Furstenberg’s Harbor Island home, lunch with Gwyneth Paltrow and Mario Batali, and attending a fashion show with Anna Wintour and the Vogue editors. Today's sale came together pretty serendipitously.
The CFDA and Vogue are teaming up once again--but the end goal of this partnership has little to do with fashion. According to Vogue.com, the two organizations have just launched a new initiative called Fashion for Sandy Relief, which aims to raise funds for those affected by the hurricane. Even Anna Wintour is putting herself on the auction block.
