Football WAGs hold huge garage sale of designer clothes to stomp out waste

Football WAGs are going to war on clothes waste by holding a huge garage sale of their unwanted goods for charity.

Jamie and Rebekah Vardy, Luka and Vanja Modric, Cesc and Daniella Fabregas and César and Adriana Azpilicueta are donating designer items from the family wardrobe.

It aims to raise millions from fans desperate to own premium footie cast-offs.

Gareth Southgate, the England manager, has donated one of his old training tops from the national team.

Dolce & Gabbana dungarees and Fendi sandals handed down from the Vardy children are up for grabs.

The Vardys have donated more than 100 items.

The Azpilicuetas have offered up more than 400.

They include a Joseph jersey from Mrs Azpilicueta’s wardrobe and Ralph Lauren skirt and Burberry jacket from her children.

It’s the brainchild of ex Chelsea goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini’s partner Anoesjcka Gianotti.

She hopes to make wearing second-hand clothes trendy and to reduce the 10% of global carbon emissions caused by the fashion industry.

Ms Gianotti, 38, said: “There is too much clothing. We can make these second-hand items useful just by attaching meaningful stories to them even to the wives’ and children’s items.

“It creates a different value and this can be the new luxury.”

The fashion designer got the idea after coming home from donating the retired shot-stopper’s old kit to a charity shop to find letters from fans asking for his clothing.

She added: “I felt guilty because I had just dropped these items off.

“I spoke with a few of the other wives and they had the same problem the surplus of clothing and training kit.

“I thought, ‘How can I connect these fans to the charity and how will they believe these are actually Carlo’s items?’”
