In yesterday's issue of Grazia we broke the news that Victoria Beckham is selling off 600 iconic pieces from her wardrobe on The Outnet. The designer is selling dresses, shoes and accessories from her fashion archive with proceeds going to mothers2mothers, a charity which aims to eliminate the transmission of HIV and Aids between mothers and their unborn children.

In this week's issue, Grazia's Katherine Ormerod sits down with Victoria to find out all about this epic wardrobe clear out. Victoria shares the stories behind her most iconic looks headed for the Outnet from the white Prada dress in Spice World The Movie to her floral Roberto Cavalli skirt.

One iconic VB piece up for grabs is the green Maria Grachvogel rollneck top she wore on the catwalk at London Fashion Week back in 2000. Victoria told us: "I can remember phoning my mum before I did that fashion show and saying, “Mum I’m really, really nervous.” She said, “Victoria, you’ve been walking since the age of one, you’ve got nothing to be nervous about. Shut up and get on with it!” So I did."

So how did she pick which pieces to sell for charity? In a scene reminiscent of Carrie’s closet clear-out in the Sex and the City movie, Victoria tells us she enlisted the help of her nearest and dearest. ‘My mum and my sister came over to mine and we sorted through the rails and packed up the boxes,’ she recalls. ‘My sister was so harsh. I’d be like, ‘Oooooh I can’t give this away,’ and she’d say, ‘Give me that. Put it in the box now…Harper is never going to want that!’ To be honest there are some pieces I’m sure Harper would love – I think I’ve donated the very best pieces - but there are a lot of other people out there who will really enjoy them.’

HOW YOU CAN GET A PIECE OF VB


Over 600 pieces from VB's wardrobe will be on sale on THEOUTNET.COM from 20-25 August. There'll be something for everyone, from small accessories such as jewellery, hats, shoes and bags, to big-ticket pieces such as eveningwear. Every piece was reviewed by Christie's. To be in with a chance of snapping up a bit of fashion history, register at THEOUTNET.COM from 5 August. The majority of pieces will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. There will also be an auction of 10 of Victoria's most iconic looks. All proceeds from the sale will go to charity.
