BIG FOR JAPAN: Designers got quite creative with their donations for the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Fashion & Friends for Japan charity auction, which kicks off today on and aids victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Among the 75 donations are a full week’s stay at CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg’s private home in the Bahamas; a tour of Vanity Fair’s offices that includes sitting in on a meeting in editor in chief Graydon Carter’s office and dinner for four at The Monkey Bar, and a chance to experience Ralph Lauren’s Paris culminating with tickets for “The Art of the Automobile: Masterpieces of the Ralph Lauren Collection.” Meanwhile, Vogue is offering an opportunity to meet Anna Wintour and attend a Vogue shoot, while DKNY donated a VIP experience at Yankee Stadium when the Yankees play the Tampa Bay Rays on July 9, including a chance to meet Yankees manager Joe Girardi. These are not all the lots, however. The auction is ongoing and donations can still be made.
