12/09/11 – Leading designer Matthew Williamson, who is an Ambassador of Starlight, is auctioning two exclusive items on online market place Ebay to raise funds for the charity, which brightens the lives of poorly children throughout the UK.
The items, which are a stunning, one-of-a-kind mirror and a vintage trunk, were both part of the furnishings in the recent Häagen-Dazs Boudoir, a luxurious pop up in central London which was created to provide the ‘ultimate girls’ night’ and was supported by Matthew Williamson and television presenter Cat Deeley.
Matthew Williamson signed both items whilst hosting a VIP night at the Häagen-Dazs Boudoir, where he exclusively showcased his most iconic dresses from the past ten years to eight lucky Häagen-Dazs fans.
Both the mirror and the trunk have been signed by Matthew Williamson. With all proceeds from the ten day online sale going to the designer’s chosen charities, which are Starlight and Cancer Research UK, the owners of these enviable items will be helping Starlight to grant the once-in-a-lifetime wishes of some of the UK’s most seriously ill children.
The mirror, which is approx: 77cm (H) x 96cm (L), can be bid for at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Matthew-Williamson-Signed-Haagen-Dazs-Cartouche-Mirror-/190573750415?pt=UK_DVD_Film_TV_Autographs_CV&hash=item2c5f14a88f.

Matthew Williamson said, “I have supported Starlight for some time now and I am delighted to be able to auction these two great pieces to raise funds for the charity. Both the mirror and the trunk would make a wonderful addition to any home and, if you dream of owning a completely unique item, then why not make a bid and help Starlight to make the dreams of lots of poorly children come true.”
