Wondering what you can do to help the people of Haiti today? Here’s the answer: Get your butts down to Save The Children’s Clapham branch this afternoon where Brix Smith-Start is generously donating a van full of designer goodies from her boutique as well as items donated by her customer's including these summery little numbers:
See by Chloe flower dress with pleat detail: WAS £385, NOW £120!
Lungta de Fancy grey dress: WAS £329.50, NOW £100!
See by Chloe flower skirt with pleat: WAS £229.50, NOW £70!
"I wanted to do something with the clothes we had left over from the season, and turn them straight into cash that went directly to help the people of Haiti," says Brix. "I started a Twitter campiagn last Friday and yesterday we realised we had collected hundreds of items and were running out of space, so we called Save The Children!"
There are hundreds of items, not just high fashion womenswear, but menswear tailoring and shirts, and clothes from the hip east London skate shop, Wholesome.
Save The Children, who have already spent £400,000 on water, sanitation and hygiene and £300,000 on emergency protection, education and getting the kids back to some semblance of normal life in the wake of the earthquake, are using all the proceeds to continue their good work in Haiti. All you have to do is go shopping. The clothes will be priced at around a third of their original cost and we have it on good authority that the drop will include a S/S '09 3.1 Philip Lim dress which was originally £650 and is now £200! On your marks, get set... GO GO GO and tell your friends too! [FashionEditoratLarge]
