“…had the idea of asking our friends who were designers to rethink some of our own pieces with the proceeds going to charity,” Karen Elson told Vogue. “We had no idea it would get this big.” The famous redhead actress and Liz Goldwyn’s outfits, along with other pieces, will be auctioned off on Moda Operandi with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Dress for Success, a nonprofit organization that provides wardrobes and career development tools and other support to low-income women looking to return to or enter the workforce.
Elson said, “Whatever people want to say about fashion, the truth is that clothing is armor, and what we choose to wear is a reflection of where we are in our lives. When you have a big job interview or a court appearance, you are greatly helped by having the right clothes—something that lets you feel powerful and helps you put the right foot forward.”
