Get a piece of fashion history with outfits donated by the likes of Naomi Campbell
Roll up, roll up… Grazia has teamed up with the amazing charity Kids Company for this year’s fabulous fashion sale on Friday and Saturday – a chance to indulge in some shameless self-gifting, guilt free. Because we doubt there’s anywhere else you can find Louboutins, Lanvins, Diors and Dries cheek by jowl with Alberta Ferretti that you can sincerely say you picked up ‘at a snip’. Add to that donations from the high stores GAP, Banana Republic and Whistles and this is really a fashionista one-stop shop.
And for once you can shop with a clear conscience because all the money raised will go to Kids Company, the charity founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh that helps some of the UK’s most vulnerable kids. So what are you waiting for? Sharpen your elbows for the ‘Get-a-piece-of-fashion-history’ sale rail, groaning with donations from everyone to Naomi Campbell, Laura Bailey, Florence Welch and Tamara Eccelstone. Make room in your wardrobe for a Prada bag or two wrenched from the hands of the Grazia fashion team. Those of you with a wedding in the diary can pick up an amazing bargain wedding dress given by Jenny Packham and the Vintage Wedding Dress Company on ‘Fashion Friday’. And on ‘Super Saturday’ you can shop for childrenswear from Chloe, Bon Point, Ralph Lauren and Stella McCartney while being served cupcakes from Hummingbird Bakery at a traditional kids tea party. Oh and – as if you need more! – after you’ve shopped til you’ve dropped, Bare Minerals, WAH Nails and Nails Inc will be on hand to spruce you up with a makeover. See you there!
