Last night fashion.psfk went along to the Forever Marilyn charity auction at the Scream art gallery in Bruton St. Inspired by the eightieth anniversary of the birth of Marilyn Monroe, a host of artists and designers had created one-off pieces paying homage to the Hollywood star which were auctioned off in aid of Save the Children.
The auction line-up was impressive- a Vivienne Westwood outfit inspired by photos of Marilyn from ‘Some Like it Hot’, a portrait of Marilyn from the estate of acclaimed photographer Milton Greene, a bold, Pop art-influenced unique Philip Treacy hat, a Marilyn-inspired pair of jeans from London Denim decorated with Swarovski crystals, a Tracey Emin sketch, and an Issa dress with a repeat print of the iconic Marilyn billowing dress image were just some of the many pieces under the hammer.
