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