That Perfect Dress? Yours. (And It’s Marchesa!)

 

The Rue holiday party is fast approaching, and the entire office is abuzz with one seemingly simple question: What are you wearing? But – as any girl can tell you – that question is most definitely not simple. Finding that perfect dress is far easier said than done.

Unless, of course, you have the help of, say… a couture designer. Like Georgina Chapman of Marchesa.

That’s right. We’ve teamed up with luxury charity auction site Charitybuzz – which has raised more than $65 million for nonprofits worldwide by auctioning exclusive access to the world’s biggest celebs and brands – to offer a fashion lover’s dream experience: an intimate shopping and styling experience with Georgina herself.

Included? A dress from Marchesa’s line (which Georgina will oh-so-expertly style), a custom fitting with an in-house seamstress, dress delivery, and more.

Finding that perfect dress is suddenly yesterday’s news. And better yet, net proceeds benefit Rose Children’s Home in Delhi, India, a charity which provides a long-term, safe haven – as well as education, healthcare, and livelihood skills – to abandoned and vulnerable girls under the age of 18.

Now, that is glamour you can feel good about.

Personal Styling by Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman opens Monday, December 10, at 11AM ET.

Charitybuzz brings together the most wholly original and utterly luxurious offerings, all in support of some of the causes that matter most. We’re so excited about our Shop for Good – charitybuzz Boutique (opening tomorrow!), and we jumped at the chance to get a moment with charitybuzz CEO and co-founder Coppy Holzman.

Rue La La: Where did this drive to “do good” originate? 
Coppy: It began with my childhood and the priorities given to me by my family. My mother just died this past Thursday night after a long illness, and I am more motivated than ever to follow the legacy that she gave me to make a difference in the world.
