When news broke of L’Wren Scott’s suicide in March, Mick Jagger’s daughter Georgia May Jagger was in mid air en route to Australia to headline a show for local designer Camilla Franks at the Melbourne Fashion Festival. That appearance was cancelled, but Jagger is now taking part in Franks’ 10 Year Charity Art Project to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the designer’s brand and raise funds for a charity close to Jagger’s heart. Jagger has joined nine other artists and friends of the designer, including singer-songwriter Dannii Minogue (sister ofKylie) and Cirque du Soleil performer Eric Hernandez, in creating a self portrait to be auctioned, with all proceeds going to the Black Dog Institute,a Sydney-based not-for-profit facility that specialises the prevention and treatment of depression and bi-polar disorder. Shot and directed by Jagger last week at a house in Los Angeles where she was on location working, the image depicts Jagger against the backdrop of a vintage replica spaceship, which just happened to be in the backyard, with Jagger wearing a limited edition version of one of Franks’ signature kaftans, the ‘Guadaloupe’. Unveiled on Wednesday, the silent auction via thecamilla.com.au website ends on December 21.
