From Yves Saint Laurent to Chloé, 'Stiletto' magazine enlisted the best brands in fashion to create one-of-a-kind children's designs for a charity auction on December 14 at Paris' Plaza Athénée. Bid here now for these cute collectables in time for the holidays.


Ushering in the New Year with charitable flair, 'Stiletto' magazine has organized an exceptional auction of 'Redux' luxury fashions at Paris' Plaza Athénée to benefit "Les Toiles Enchantées," a French children's charity.

Enlisting the best brands for the sale, Stiletto waved its magic wand over 34 prized designs and shrunk them down to size, creating maxi-style for mini-fashionistas the world over.

"Everything happened in record time. We sent a letter to each house at the end of July and by beginning September each one had replied! We made suggestions based on iconic styles and worked closely with each house on the realization of each," explains editor-in-chief of 'Stiletto', Laurence Benaïm.

Raising the event's fashion factor to colorful heights, star-shooter Martin Parr lent his lens for the auction's accompanying 'Redux' magazine.

Vice president of Christie's France, François de Ricqlès, will animate the auction block on December 14 at the Plaza. But if you can't catch the auction live in time for the holidays, be sure to bid here on one of these collectable minis.

"It was one of the most intense experiences we've had as a team since 'Stiletto' was launched in 2003. It felt like a theatre opening or a movie set. Within an hour, we turned one of the Plaza's grand halls into Ali Baba's cave. We watched the metamorphosis of each child as they were filled with emotion. Martin Parr was incredibly calm and patient. "

"I was completely blown away by Alber Elbaz' robe for Lanvin, the smoking from Yves Saint Laurent, the Ferragamo sandals, the dresses from Chloé, Rochas and Christian Lacroix and by just the pure creative energy expressed as a whole. I was incredibly moved by everyone's enthusiasm. It was a true marriage of imagery, emotion and creativity."
