While guest to the Clothes Throw events at Palm Sugar Lounge, Liverpool ONE which takes place from 25th-28th October will be able to bid on Nicole Richie, Sienna Miller and Beyonce's donations. The events will be a series of glitzy catwalk shows and the chance to buy some amazing celebrity clothes.

"There are three ways you can help with the Alder Hey Clothes Throw: donate clothes, hold your own Clothes Throw party or attend any of the official Clothes Throw events in Liverpool ONE."
People can sign up to hold their own Clothes Throw parties at home, work, or larger venues buying their no longer worn clothes and accessories from each other.
Nicola has also designed a Clothes Throw bag for life which is on sale in the Imagine Appeal office in Alder Hey as well as a licensed £1 with amazing prizes including a Liverpool One to London Fashion Week experience.
