After weeks of planning, Grazia’s annual sample sale in association with Kids Company is finally here. We’ve got so much stuff to sell. That’s where you come in. From tomorrow, the sale is open to the public (with free entry!) for two whole bargain-tastic days.
We’ve got pieces from high-end designers including Stella McCartney, Christian Louboutin, Alexander McQueen, Roksanda Ilincic, Tory Burch, Matthew Williamson, Alberta Ferretti, Proenza Schouler, Diane Von Furstenberg, Paul Smith, Furla and Matthew Williamson (phew!) to high street gems from LK Bennett, Reiss, Cath Kidston and Superdry. We’ve also got special celebrity donations from Sienna Miller, Paloma Faith, Laura Bailey, Rebecca Ferguson, Sara Gallagher and TWIGGY!
What makes the sale doubly brilliant is the fact that it’s totally guilt-free spending! Every last penny made will go to helping out London’s most under-privileged kids at what is normally one of the hardest times of year for them; Christmas. Founder of Kid's Company Camila Batmanghelidjh had this to say, “For some 7500 children at Kids Company, Christmas is potentially a profundly bleak time. The money raised through Gladrags will get the children presents, clothes and show them that people care.”
We’ve also got some extra special pampering treats for those attending the sale. On Friday, from 9-12PM manicurists from Nails Inc. will be giving free manicures and for those attending on Saturday, Headmasters and bareMinerals will be on hand to do hairstyling and make-up so you and your new purchases are ready to head out on the town.
Gladrags & Handbags 2012 takes place on Friday 16 November (9AM-7PM) and Saturday 17 November (10AM-6PM) at 15 Welbeck Street, London, W1. Entry is free.
