This Friday, May 13th, 2011 at Le Baron de Paris in Tokyo, Japan, a special Art and Fashion Charity Auction will take place to raise money for victims of the Kanto-Tohoku earthquake which struck Japan two months ago, and brought about a series of catastrophic events that killed many and unleashed untold destruction.

As Japan and the world continue to mourn the loss of all those who died, we look to move forward by helping raise funds to aid those who are still desperately in need. Le Baron de Paris’ “Art & Fashion Charity Auction” together with the international humanitarian organization Japan Platform offers us a chance to give back and HELP.

Artists and Designers such as Alain Mikli, Andre, BALENCIAGA, DITA, Dom Pérignon, Enlightenment, Gardar Eide Einarsson, GUCCI, Jose Parla, KAWS, Louis Vuitton, Mark Ryden, Nike Destroyer x Andre, Jun Takahashi (Undercover), Keiichi Nitta, Olympia Le Tan, VALENTINO, YSL, and more have all donated auction worthy pieces for your good-karmic bidding pleasure.
