Where would us ladies be without Rigby & Peller, eh? The venerable underwear makers provide gorgeous bras and knickers for the likes of Stella McCartney, Gwyneth Paltrow and The Queen, as well as for us mere mortals. So you can imagine Grazia Daily’s delight when we heard R&P have teamed up with our pal Mary Portas for a super-swanky lingerie night at her brilliant Living & Giving shops.
The event takes place on Thursday 10th Feb (eep, that’s tomorrow, kids!) at Mary’s two London charity shops in Primrose Hill and Westbourne Grove, and we highly recommend you join us there. Why? Well the masters of underpinnings are donating stacks of designer lingerie and swimwear, with all proceeds going towards Save the Children’s ‘No Child Born to Die’ campaign. So far, we know the Seta & Lace set which Gaga herself wore is up for grabs and you could also get your mitts on glitzy accessories which the A-list likes of Kate Moss have wore in oh-so-glam fashion shoots. So there you have it - a good cause and top notch undies? What’s not to love?
Oh, and there’s more! You, dear readers, can PRE-SHOP the event. Yes, you’ll get a 30 minute head start on everyone else by quoting 'Grazia Daily' on arrival at either of the Living & Giving Shops. Plus, all attendees to the event will receive a free entrance to the prize draw, which offers a made-to-measure set from Rigby & Peller as the grand prize. Woopee!
The online auction goes live tomorrow - check out www.savethechildren.org.uk/livingandgiving for further information - and the evening event at the Primrose Hill and Westbourne Grove stores will take place between 6.00pm and 8.30pm. See you lingerie lovers there tomorrow for a glass of champers!
