Sir Elton John and his husband David Furnish are cleaning out their closets for a good cause. The pair is holding a wardrobe purge in the form of a pop-up shop at Covent Garden, London
, on the former site of the Theatre Museum. The pair amasses quite a bit of clothing and every so often they sell off part of their wardrobes. So far they have raised millions for the Elton John Aids Foundation. According to the London Times
, thousands of items of clothing and accessories have been shipped in from the couple's properties around the world for the sale. The booty will include stage costumes created for Sir Elton by Versace and Yohji Yamamoto along with Etro shirts and ties.
Elton John has decided to part with a complete collection of vividly printed silk shirts by Gianni Versace. Other items include dressing gowns, shoes, belts, bags, sunglasses and more, all priced from £30 to as high as £750 for the suits. The shop opens on December 12 and will be restocked daily until everything is sold. On December 19 any unsold items will be marked down to clearance prices.
