The unique pieces are all handmade in TOPSHOP's London atelier, and were worn by Kendal Jenner, Toni Garn, Jourdan Dunn, Chanel Iman and Zoe Kravitz. These breathtakingly, beautiful frocks will go live on eBay from the 27th November in a 10 day auction.
Inspired by the theme of this year's MET Ball Gala, the work of British Couturier
Charles James, each dress was painstakingly sown by hand, and designed with the
wearer in mind.
Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has since launched in the UK in 1996 and has raised over 13.5 million euro for the ground breaking research of leading charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer. TOPSHOP has been a key partner of the campaign since 2007.
Details on the dresses which are up for auction:
Kendall wore a blush strapless dress featuring a delicate fold detail across the top
of the bust line, body contouring panelling and dramatic volume at hem. This
beautiful shape was created using underlays of netting underneath the hem to
support it and an internal corset to secure the dress from bust to waist.
Jourdan wore a vibrant Chartreuse silk gabardine dress with body contouring
panels and a slash front detail. A dramatic back dress train with added volume at
the hem creates an hourglass silhouette, shaping Jourdan's body perfectly. Netting
underneath the skirt supports the volume at the hem.
Toni wore a pale blue double silk Gazar dress with a delicate fold detail across the
bust and back. The plunging back is supported to the waist by an internal lace-up
corset. The slim silhouette through the hips, falls from the mid-thigh with dramatic
volume, supported by a colour matched net under skirt.

across the front and back panels. The dress is backless with two self-rouleaux
straps to secure the front of the dress. The hem features a stunning train with floor
Zoe wore an oxblood gown with a plunging neckline detail and self-rouleaux
strapping details at the front and back of the dress to secure it. The thigh-high split
and pleat detail at the top of the hip create a contemporary cocktail dress look.
