Designer Alice Temperley of Temperley London is teaming up with Annie Lennox, Harper’s Bazaar UK, and the Phillips de Pury gallery in London to host a fashionable photography auction benefiting Africa.
The photographs Temperley is donating were originally shown at her Fall 2010 presentation, after she recruited photographer Adam Whitehead to shoot females she felt were quintessential British women in the elegant style of the late English shutterbug Norman Parkinson, who helped define fashion photography of the ’50s and ’60s.
On May 18, as part of the True British auction and benefit dinner, these images, plus 15 images by Parkinson — including a few of legendary Brit model Jean Shrimpton — will be up for grabs to the highest bidder.
Always a fan of Africa, Temperley is making sure that 100 percent of the proceeds from the Temperley London images and 25 percent from the Parkinson prints will go to Oxfam charity The Circle and support Mali.
Not in London? No problem. Fans worldwide can bid on the pieces by clicking through the online catalog.
Included here are the introductions from both Alice and Annie as well as a supersized image of the picture of Annie that is in the auction with an estimate of £2000 – £3000
