Fashion with a cause is always in style, so it’s exciting to hear that TOPSHOP is auctioning off the dresses made for the 2014 MET Ball Gala, and is donating all proceeds going to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. What could be better than helping such a brilliant cause and getting your hands on MET Gala history? Not much.Inspired by the theme of this year’s MET Ball Gala, the work of British Couturier Charles James, each dress was painstakingly sown by hand, and designed with the wearer in mind.  The unique pieces, all handmade in TOPSHOP’s London atelier and were worn by Kendall Jenner, Toni Garn, Jourdan Dunn, Chanel Iman and Zoe Kravitz will go live on ebay from the 27th November in a 10 day auction.

The worthy cause, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer is a powerful force that unites the fashion world in the fight against breast cancer. Since it launched in the UK in 1996 it has raised over £13.5 million for the ground-breaking research of leading charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Topshop has been a key partner of the campaign since 2007.

The Topshop Met Gala dresses will be auctioned on eBay from Thursday 27th November to Sunday 7th December.
