A one-of-a-kind collection piece up for online charity auction on eBay.com in February design by Antony Hegart . Online auction starts on February 14th 2008, all proceeds going to Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP) , as requested by Antony.

In November 2007 an initiative involving the collaboration between different creative universes, each united by the common goal of launching original projects that are both ethical and aesthetic, was created.

The result of the collaboration is a dress designed by the musician and produced by Yoox.com, which will be auctioned on eBay.com  from the 14th of February 2008. Following the designer’s wish, the proceeds of the sale will be donated to the SRLP, the American grassroots organisation that fights for the rights of all people to self-determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence

The dress, made from white silk jersey, has been made by hand and produced in a single model signed by Antony himself. Evoking a kimono, the sleeves are short, the hems are unfinished, and the front is adorned with an elegant abstract design. Following the lines of a tunic, the opening is at the rear and can be tied on both sides, which makes it suitable for all body shapes and silhouettes.

Antony for Yoox.com is the first in a series of future projects that YOOX.COM will develop with other musicians in collaboration with NABA ( New Academy of Fine Arts – Milan)

Auction Cause will produce the charity auction through eBay Giving Works, eBay’s dedicated program for charity listings. www.auctioncause.com
