A group of friends and collaborators of Sophie have gotten together in creating an online auction to honor Sophie’s memory. The auction is aptly titled, God Is Trans, and has been put together to continue Sophie’s “radical generosity, artistic vision and commitment to supporting the trans community”.
Running till this Sunday, the auction is made up of several pieces of art paying homage to Sophie, including work by Alex Chaves, Emily Schubert, Nick Harwood, as well as the ethereal Eckhaus Latta silk dress worn by Sophie for the AW18 runway show. Alongside the auction, there are also exclusive print editions (of 100) available, including the iconic image titled ‘Sophie’ by Renata Raksha.
