Amanda Brooks resigned from Barneys in March, and she seems serious about leaving the fashion world behind for that farm in England. The former fashion director is even donating her designer duds to benefit the New York City Opera.
Page Six reports that Brooks donated “loads of shoes” and “thousands and thousands of dollars” worth of designer wares to the annual DIVAS Shop for Opera event, which opens tonight. We don’t know the specific pieces, but there are items from the likes of Prada, Chanel, YSL, and Jil Sander.
The sale opens at 82 Mercer Street at 6 p.m. tonight, and tickets start at $75. Proceeds will continue to support the New York City Opera.
