Joanna Lumley - Joanna Lumley auctioning wardrobe for charity

Joanna Lumley is auctioning off her 'Absolutely Fabulous' wardrobe for charity.

The actress' character, Patsy Stone was known for her colourful, extravagant and always designer dress sense - which includes both neon and leopard print - and many of her outrageous outfits will be up for grabs with the funds to benefit The Prince's Trust.

Joanna said: ''I am giving up some of my greatest treasures and happiest memories.

''I am so thrilled to think that the proceeds will all go to benefit young people through one of my all-time favourite charities - The Prince's Trust. I love each item and each garment with a passion.''

Also among the 50 lots up for auction are costumes from Joanna's other roles including the character Purdey in 'The Avengers' and Marie Jouvet in 'The Trail of the Pink Panther'.

Other pieces come from Joanna's personal wardrobe, which have appeared on various red carpets or public engagements, from designers such as Chanel, Pucci and Moschino.

The sale will be held on November 13 at Kerry Taylor Auctions in London, with all proceeds going towards The Prince's Trust's UK-wide programmes supporting young people to move into work, education or training.
