These Luxury Vintage Shops Are Donating Today's Sales To The Black Lives Matter Movement
Today, Jun. 10, 20 luxury consignment vendors from around the world will be selling iconic pieces from cult designers in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. 100 percent of profits from the #VTG4BLM campaign will be donated to various Black Lives Matter-related organizations of each shops choice. So, there's never been a better time to treat yourself to a new favorite designer heirloom while simultaneously supporting an amazing cause.
The #VTG4BLM campaign was kickstarted by Nina Gabbana, owner of the Paris-based high-end consignment shop Gabbana Vintage. Despite not being in the U.S., Gabbana decided to use her platform to find ways to support the Black Lives Matter cause. "I shared in my stories that I wanted to organize a sale with 100 percent of the proceeds donated to BLM organizations, and very quickly I was contacted by other sellers that wanted to get involved and participate to the sale," she explained to TZR, adding, "The response has been very motivating and helped put things in motion faster than I expected."
Participating shops are based worldwide so the times that most sellers will be posting their goods today will vary: Paris: 7 p.m., UK: 6 p.m., Germany: 7 p.m., Finland: 8 p.m., California: 10 a.m. Florida: 1 p.m., and Michigan: 1 p.m.. However, time frames of sales are at each sellers discretion so the best way to stay on top of the juicy drops is by following the #VTG4BLM hashtag, as each seller will post with the tag. Gabbana Vintage, however, will now have a permanent donation option to BLM organizations going forward. "It’s about a cause we all believe in, and want to help and support. Raising money through a sale for donations is one way of many to help, but not the only way. Raising awareness and speaking up about what the Black community is going through around us is very important too. So I hope that through this sale we will have the opportunity to do both," says Gabbana.
As the event is gaining traction, more vintage dealers are jumping in on the cause so follow the hashtag #VTG4BLM for the latest. And shop the already live offerings, below.
