John's Clothing Sale Raised More Than $700,000



A haute couture yard sale from the wardrobe of Elton John has raised more than 700,000 dollars to help fund the fight against AIDS

Flamboyant pop star Elton John really has made it good with his outfit. His five-day charity-clothing sale ended Friday April 14th, 2006 at the Rockefeller Center in New York surprisingly has raised more than 700,000 dollars. All the proceeds will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

There are at least 10, 000 pieces of clothes from John and partner David Furnish's wardrobe sold at the charity, like the Richard James-designed polka-dot suit he wore during a controversial duet with rapper Eminem at the 2001 Grammy Awards and other suits by top designer labels such as Versace, Louis Vuitton, Comme des Garcons and Gucci.
