Every year the rich and famous of the fashion world gather in Vienna for the Life Ball. The charity event is the largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser of the year, and has been supported for the past ten years running by Mini. Over the course of their decade of collaboration, the BMW subsidiary has enlisted the talents of such noted designers as Diesel, Versace and Agent Provocateur, and the unique hatchbacks they've created have raised half a million euros for the cause.
This year, however, they've brought in three big name designers – Kenneth Cole, Diane von Furstenberg and Calvin Klein creative director Francisco Costa – to customize special Minis for the event. Each is featured in the image gallery below and will be auctioned off at the gala in Vienna on July 17 to kick off the 18th International AIDS Conference.
