Mothers2mothers (m2m) supports women who are living with HIV and their families.

“After spending just a few days with these remarkable women and learning more about the charity from Mitch...I wanted to do as much as I could. It really was a life-changing experience; I’ve never experienced anything like it,” she told Grazia magazine.

Victoria decided to organise a high profile wardrobe sale, in order to raise money and awareness for the cause.

The 40-year-old picked 600 pieces from her expansive archive, which will be sold through The Outnet.

Some of Victoria’s most infamous clothing, shoes, accessories and jewellery will be available to the public.

“I laughed a lot when we were going through my wardrobe as the pieces hold so many happy memories for me, David and the children. A lot of the clothes have been specially designed for me by the most talented designers and I’ve loved wearing them, however I now feel it’s someone else’s turn to enjoy them,” she said.

The items will be sold as a private online sale from August 20th to 25th, and customers must register their interest in advance.

A ‘Going, Going, Gone’ reverse auction will also be hosted by the site, comprised of ten of Victoria’s most iconic pieces, including the white Dolce & Gabbana she wore to the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards.

Dr Mitch Besser, who is married to singer Annie Lennox, has said, “We are honored and extremely grateful to Victoria Beckham and The Outnet for their very generous support of mothers2mothers.”
