Antony And The Johnsons singer designs dress

Singer to auction off new creation

Antony & The Johnsons singer Antony Hegarty has designed a one of a kind collection piece, due to be auctioned on EBay USA in February.

The designed dress is set to raise proceeds for the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, an American grassroots organisation that fights for the rights of all people to self determine gender identity and expression.

The dress is produced by YOOX.COM, and will be listed on eBay.com from February 14.

The dress, evoking a silk kimono, is the first in a series of future projects that will be developed with other musicians.
