HAVAIANAS in collaboration with WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL launch celebrity fashion auction, which officially kicks off online on the 1st July 2017! Celebrities and designers in attendance have created works of art inspired by the traditional ‘flip flop’ which will later be auctioned off online in order to raise awareness for the Women for Women International charity. Some of the most iconic and influential creatives in attendance will be, Alice-Tem-perley, Aquazzura, Arizona Muse, Charlotte Olypmia, DSQUARED2, Manolo Blahnik, Mary Katrantzou, Naomi Campbell, Nicholas Kirkwood, Simone Rocha, Stephen Jones and Swarovski. The pieces of art are decadent, extravagant and created by these significant individuals.
Beautiful and decadent, these Mary Katrantzou flip flops are bright and eye-catching with their vivid colours and jewel detailing.

Maria Katstani, curator of the event, is a fashion entrepreneur, restructuring and positioning emerging talents and designer brands on the global sphere. The event publicised the works of art and illustrated to guests the purpose for the auction and its importance for the women’s charity. Havaianas, created in 1962, represents comfort and luxury in a simple yet adventurous form, through their joyful designs of footwear. Havainas are teaming up with Women for Women International in order to celebrate the artistic designs, whilst raising funds for the women’s charity. By teaming up with a number of different luxury brands and celebrities, they are able to raise awareness for the women in compromising circumstances.
Dark, daring and intriguing. These Naomi Campbell platforms are an exaggerated, stunning version of the classic black platform.

Women for Women International are a charity with over 20 years’ experience, aimed at uplifting and aiding ‘excluded women’ in society who have been affected by war. They have previously supported women with war-torn backgrounds from all over the world including, Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Democratic republic of Congo, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Sudan and Northern Iraq, whilst recently paying closer attention to women in difficult circumstances in the Iraqi-Syrian conflict. The charity also offers the chance for people to get involved and sponsor a woman through a year long programme, in order to ‘change the world one woman at a time.’ This event is aiming to bring together lovers of art, in order to raise awareness to such an important and life changing charity for women. The online charity auction officially launches on the 1st of July through Givergy, and more information can be found at www.havaianas.com
