The sale will take place at Penkridge auction house Cuttlestones’ Designer Goods Auction on Friday, October 2, with proceeds from the sale going directly to supporting Newlife’s mission to change the lives of disabled and terminally ill children across the UK.

The sale will offer label lovers the opportunity to pick up some designer bargains – including clothing, jewellery, shoes, bags, luggage, skiwear, skincare and accessories.

Labels represented in the sale include Gucci, Dior, Versace, PRADA, Stella McCartney, Mulberry, McQueen, Fendi, Victoria Beckham, Diane Von Fustenberg, DKNY, Michael Kors, Chloe, Maxmara and Burberry.

Stand-out lots include a Gucci white ladies’ pants suit which retails at £1,750 and a pair of Nicola Costa trousers that usually carry a price tag of around £1,000.

Managing director and head auctioneer at Cuttlestones, Ben Gamble says: “With guide prices starting from as little as £10, this really does represent a rare chance to snap up a designer bargain – and, with the majority of lots being sold on behalf of Newlife, bidders will be doing their bit for a very worthy cause.

“We’re delighted to work with Sheila to bring these lots to market, and want to raise as much as possible for a charity that does so much to help children and their families across the country.”

Mrs Sheila Brown OBE, co-founder and CEO of Newlife, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Cuttlestones for this upcoming auction and with your generosity and support, we can help change the lives of disabled and terminally ill children up and down the country.
