Organised by the presenter and host Miss Jason, the sale will include pieces donated by designers including Wales Bonner, Martine Rose, Liam Hodges, Très Bien, Ahluwalia and Nasir Mazhar. Alongside those will be donations from entertainment figures including FKA Twigs, Neneh Cherry, Mabel, and Skinny Macho.
Highlights of the sale include an OAMC bomber jacket from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection, a vintage shell-suit owned by Cherry herself, and several pieces from Nike‘s collaborations with Matthew M Williams, who was recently appointed creative director at Givenchy.
All proceeds will go to the UKQTIBIPOC Hardship Fund, which provides support for queer, trans and intersex people of colour in the U.K. who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Depop have agreed to waive their fees for this project, ensuring that 100% of funds raised will go to support the cause.
To promote the project, Miss Jason has also worked with the designer Liam Hodges and musician Hasani on a DJ set in collaboration with Beats by Dre, asking viewers of the set to donate to charitable organisations. Hodges’ own fee from Beats by Dre was also donated.
The sale will go live on Depop under Miss Jason’s account, @COMCwithMissJason, at 6pm BST / 1pm ET on Friday June 19 and will run until Sunday June 21. Details on the sale will be announced via Miss Jason’s Instagram page.
