In addition to apparel, there will be handbags, shoes and accessories up for auction.
Among the brands represented in addition to Chanel are Versace, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and Balenciaga. Starting prices for the auctions are based on current resale values for the items, and a portion of the profits will be donated to The Trevor Project, a national nonprofit organization focused on suicide prevention among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.
