7th on sale, one of the largest sample sales of designer items (such as children’s, homeware, men and womenswear) straight from the showrooms of Seventh Avenue was last held a decade ago and now in an attempt to restore what was one of the main key events of the year, the Council of Fashion Designers of America will be bringing the sale back but with a twist. The sale will take place online as an ebay auction from Nov. 10 to Dec 7, and will include limited-edition designs. As before all proceeds will go to Aids Charities.
“This was an event that had lost its energy at a certain point, but no one lost their passion or sensitivity for the cause,” said the designer Kenneth Cole, who is the chairman of the American Foundation for AIDS Research and an honorary chairman of the sale. “Our goal is to make this the biggest online sample sale, ever.”
