The trio, who hope to make a combined 185,000 dollars, appear on the fundraising website Charitybuzz.com, which is currently running an initiative to help victims of the superstorm in conjunction with the CDFA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) and Vogue, the Daily Mail reported.

Each of the women are offering bidders a slice of their time in the form of lunch dates, museum tours, and catwalk show outings, while von Furstenberg has also put a week-long stay at her Bahamian beach house on the market.

"Sandy has hit us hard here at home. It is devastating to see so many friends and neighbours affected. As we did for Haiti and Japan, our industry has come together to raise funds with Fashion for Sandy Relief," the designer said.

Wintour has two lot items up for grabs. The first gives two people the chance to meet her during a private tour of the 2013 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Although bids currently stand at 16,000 dollars, the package is expected to go for as much as 50,000 dollars when the auction ends on December 5.

The other - expected to make a similar amount - gives fashionistas the chance to attend a fashion show with her and her team of Vogue editors, tour the magazine's offices, have lunch in the Conde Nast cafeteria and take home a Vogue goody bag.

For those on a tighter budget, Beckham's offer - a meet up with her backstage after her New York Fashion Week show in February - is set to fetch 20,000 dollars.

While along with her beach house contribution - valued at 50,000 dollars - von Furstenberg is also offering a package combining a lunch date and tour of her Meatpacking headquarters, which has a pre-sale estimate of 15,000 dollars.

There are more than one hundred other experiences listed on the auction site, put forward not just by fashion players, but by film stars, singers and athletes.

All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City and other relief organizations in the tri-state area of Manhattan.
