IYC was one of 12 companies to contribute a doll for auction, with other supporters including Elie Saab, Dolce Gabbanna, Louis Vuitton and Salt Water. IYC’s doll, “Amphitrite” was designed with an ocean theme, in keeping with the company’s yachting heritage, and with a headpiece inspired by noted milliner Philip Treacy. The doll’s namesake, Amphitrite, is worshipped as the goddess of salt water, living in the underwater world – the perfect representation of IYC’s sea heritage and of a strong female goddess.
The event was hailed a huge success with a large number of donations raising an impressive amount for MANA. All money raised will go towards MANA’s work providing emotion support and specialized care for women suffering from cancer, and raising awareness and support around this cruel disease.
IYC is proud to support MANA and the recent auction event – a truly worthy cause.
