Rites x Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust: Designers Against Inequality
An auction fighting inequality and racism
Rites, the luxury resale platform with a difference – it helps people to sell their preloved items while generating funding for their favourite cause – is joining the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust on a special auction to raise money to support those working to fight inequality and racism.
In a time of the year when sales are driven by Black Friday and festive campaigns, Designers Against Inequality offers customers a rare opportunity to shop a beautifully curated selection of new designer pieces at amazing prices – and all from the comfort of their own home and for a good cause. 100 percent of proceeds from the auction will go directly to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds receive the education, training and support they need to reach their potential.
The auction will feature over 150 luxury items, donated by over 50 leading designers including Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, Simone Rocha, Molly Goddard, Anissa Kermiche, Cecilie Bahnsen, Bella Freud, Shrimps and many more.
An initiative that amplifies Rites’ message of fashion for good: “We wanted to ensure charities continue to receive the support they need through lockdown and the fashion industry has really come out in support of this cause. We’ve been completely overwhelmed by the generosity shown during a time that has been hard for a lot of people.”
Designers Against Inequality will take a place on the Rites website (www.rites.co) on Saturday, December 12 at 10am GMT. And for those who can’t wait until then, join Rites’ newsletter and access a first-look of the full catalogue ahead of the launch. Happy bidding!
