" I came back from South Africa and thought, what can I do to help?

Los Angeles, Aug 6 - Singer-turned-designer Victoria Beckham will put over 600 items from her wardrobe up for sale in aid of HIV awareness charity.

In partnership with designer outlet store TheOutnet.com and famed auctioneers Christie's, who valued the items, Victoria has placed hundreds of her own clothes, shoes and accessories online in aid of women's charity mothers2mothers, reports contactmusic.com.

Announcing the news via Twitter, she wrote: Excited to announce the charity sale of my clothing archive with @TheOutnet to support @M2MTweets (sic).

On the official Outnet site, the 40-year-old fashion icon explained how she became involved with the charity, which aims to end mother-to-child HIV transmission, after travelling to South Africa.

In February this year I visited South Africa for a project that I was working on with Anna Wintour. It was on that trip that I met Mitch Besser, founder of mothers2mothers, and the Mentor Mothers, who are the most remarkable women I have ever met.

I came back from South Africa and thought, what can I do to help? I started going through my closet and found so many great pieces that I've worn and thought, maybe I can raise money by auctioning these off. Working with The Outnet has been so exciting for me - I just want to do whatever I can do, she added.

The sale will be available on the TheOutnet.com Aug 20-25.
