Calling all style hunters...
Words by Bharti Dokal
As eco fashion and sustainability continues to shake up the industry, Women for Women International is holding its fourth #SheInspiresMe Car Boot Sale on Saturday 11th May 2019! Pencil this fashion extravaganza into your agendas as it promises to be a must-see event for bargain hunters and green fashionistas alike.
In the UK alone, 38 million items of new clothing are bought each week and 11 million go to landfill, can you believe it? But you can help combat this waste; in the best way we know how I must add. By joining VIP fashion designers and celebrities at one of the biggest events in the fashion calendar, where car boots are filled with past-season and pre-loved designer items at budget-friendly prices. Now, this is the kind of recycling we can totally get on board with.
You can lay your hands on beautiful designer samples and unique pieces from the likes of Alex Eagle, Noor Fares, Eugenie Niarchos, Maria Kastani, Charlotte Olympia, Hikari Yokoyama and Tiphaine De Lussy amongst many others.
As well as the clothes, accessories and shoes on offer, guests will have the opportunity to restore, personalise and upcycle pre-loved pieces. Oh, and it gets better. There will be a food and drink pop up from The Store – to rehydrate and refuel you throughout the day – and a makeup counter (glam session included!) by Charlotte Tilbury.
All proceeds from the #SheInspiresMe car boot sale go to Women for Women International, a charity which has helped almost half a million women survivors of war rebuild their lives.
With your help, women can graduate from the Women for Women International programme with the skills, knowledge and resources to become successful entrepreneurs. They will pass on their knowledge to their neighbours and children, creating a ripple effect.
Now, in true Monica Geller fashion let’s fish for that whistle, and go go go!
