Designer bed raises $3000 for charity

A bed styled by Dunedin fashion designer Tanya Carlson has generated about $3000 for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.

Ms Carlson was one of four well-known New Zealanders chosen to design beds in conjunction with Sealy, which were auctioned for charity.

Ms Carlson said like most New Zealanders, she had known someone affected by breast cancer.

''It has been an absolute privilege to work with Sealy on this project to raise money for the charity to support the amazing work they do assisting those fighting this awful disease,'' she said.

The four beds collectively generated $12,390, and each sold for about $3000.

Others involved were artist Otis Frizzell, fashion illustrator Kelly Thompson and musician Hollie Smith.
