SKETCH FOR A CAUSE: Galeries Lafayette is auctioning off fashion designers’ sketches for the nonprofit organization Care.

The French department store group tapped nine designers to create drawings inspired by its tagline, “The New Chic,” which was unveiled earlier this month. Julien David, Phillip Lim, Rick Owens, Guillaume Henry, Alessandro dell’Acqua, Roksanda Ilincic, Mary Katrantzou, Pascal Millet and Chantal Thomass participated.

Until Oct. 4, people can view the sketches, which are numbered and signed, in an exhibition space on the first floor of Galeries Lafayette’s Boulevard Haussmann flagship in Paris.

The sketches can be bid for only online, through galerieslafayette.com, with prices starting at 100 euros, or $112 at current exchange, each.

Care, a humanitarian organization, fights global poverty and helps combat unethical working conditions for women.
