Labels such as John Galliano and VALENTINO have donated covetable items to help protect the world's rainforests.

The Fashion houses have joined forces with Sting and Trudie Styler's charity, Rainforest UK, and contributed goods to annual charity auction The 12 Days of Christmas.

A spokesperson from John Galliano told "The Rainforest Foundation UK is globally respected for their innovative approaches in the protection of the rainforests and the rights of forest communities who call those forests home. We at the House of Galliano felt compelled and inspired by their ground-breaking work in remote forest areas, and their desire to care for some of the most beautiful places and peoples in the world. We are proud to be part of the 12 Days of Christmas auction, and are happy that chosen items from our collections can be won by people who realise that even something simple like going online for a few moments and bidding on a red carpet dress or a pair of shoes can help look after the environment."

Other participating fashion brands include Mulberry, Piers Atkinson and James Long, while celebrities include Hugh Laurie and Judi Dench have also donated a range of personalised items.

The auction will begin tomorrow (15.11.11) and will run for 12 days.
