Women’s Wear Daily is in all intents and purposes, the fashion bible. It is the eyes and ears of the fashion industry and has been known to launch careers with its features.
Working in the showroom, I looked forward to reading it every morning. WWD and a cup of coffee was the perfect start to my day.
It began in June of 1910 and this year, celebrates its 100th year Anniversary.
To celebrate, WWD did a beautiful 100 Remarkable Moments in Fashion pictorial and asked some of the world’s best designers to design a piece for a charity auction that runs now through November 18th.
I have listed some of the highlights below.
The pieces are haute couture, one of kind and made especially for this event.
We can bid or dream, can’t we?
(to BID click on the sketches to be directed to the auction website. Good Luck.)

The art of couture is slowly dying out. In a world of instant gratification and economy shifts, it is becoming less practical no matter your status. If you have unlimited income, embrace your chance to own a part of history.
If you win the auction, plan a party and send me an invitation please.
