Through July 25, Prada.com is having its first round of online auctions. What's up for grabs? Prada dresses, skirts, bags, and shoes that were initially made for the Fall 2007 runway show, but never got that far - not in the particular colors, fabrics, or materials featured, anyway.
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, new one-of-a-kind pieces, hand-picked by Miuccia herself, will be introduced to the site for a seven-day bidding period. Overall, 24 unique pieces will be auctioned, with proceeds being donated to Fondazione San Raffaele, an Italian institution devoted to clinical research, care, and teaching. What a Fab idea!
