Creatives 4 Systemic Change charity sale
Di Petsa

The subversive fashion sale you’re going to want to splurge on

Benefiting a series of charities supporting Black trans people, the Creatives 4 Systemic Change raffle brings together pieces from Eckhaus Latta, Di Petsa, Wales Bonner, Goom Heo and more

What do you get when you put together extraordinarily covetable pieces by the likes of Eckhaus Latta, Edwin Mohney, Paolina Russo, and Dazed 100 designers Paula Canovas Del Vas and Di Petsa? We’re guessing you’re going to need a clue on this, so we’ll fill you in: the just-launched Creatives 4 Systemic Change fashion raffle, that’s what. 

Launching this weekend, the online sale invites shoppers to bid $10 on their desired item (or $5 on a mystery piece), with the winner actually getting their hands on the goods, and all other funds going directly to a host of extremely worthy causes. “Our goal is to raise money but also do it in a way that is accessible to lots of people, so that they have a chance to win something they might not normally be able to afford,” explains a member of the collective behind the project, in good news for those looking to live their fashion fantasies but with limited funds with which to do so. 

Items on the line-up include an extremely fab crocheted hat by rising designer Gui Rosa, a pair of Paula Del Vas Casanovas’ signature square-toed heels, a beautiful beaded ‘breastfeeding’ corset by Dimitra Petsa, a subversive pinafore by Per Götesson, t-shirts by Parnell Mooney and Goom Heo, as well as Edwin Mohney’s ‘Trumpettos’ (to see them is to believe). But it’s not just fashion. Also up for grabs is a portrait of queer icon David Hoyle by rising photographer Heather Glazzard, a bundle of four issues of 1Granary, custom ceramic candlesticks by Nymph, and more. 

The charities benefitting from the sale include The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, For The Gworls, and The Okra Project, all of which support and empower Black trans people, with 15 per cent also going directly to Black artists. The sale came about as conversations surrounding inequality in fashion and the creative arts gain momentum, with the collective explaining “We will continue to call out racism and transphobia, continue to amplify the voices of those who are not heard, and fight to bring awareness to the fact that intolerance is not the issue of one, but of everyone.” 

The sale runs until Sunday July 4 – check it out here.
