Trash Cans for Charity
Helena Christensen partnered up with Danish design company VIPP to create custom trash bins for auction to benefit The Food Bank for New York City and Chernobyl Children’s Project International.
Christensen enlisted the help of Francisco Costa, Simon Doonan, Alice Temperley, Christy Turlington, Michael Bastian, Frederic Fekkai, Mena Suvari, among others to create and design over 30 waste bins for the event.
The bins will be on display at the Conran Shop from September 4-17th for a public viewing and pre-bidding.
For those who wish to continue bidding can do so at The VIPP Auction for Helena Christensen event, being held on September 18th.
Christensen’s bin features a graphic style, while Temperley’s is girly and pink and Costa’s is chicly minimalist.
Let the bidding begin!
