Charity Shop Late Night & Fundraiser to Wear Sweatshop Fashion Out
The fashion reuse charity TRAID is donating all sales made at a special late night opening in its Dalston charity shop to support garment workers in Bangladesh to mark the three-year anniversary of the devastating Rana Plaza factory collapse.
Drop in to TRAID’s charity shop in Dalston on Thursday 21 April, 6:30pm – 9pm to shop the packed rails for beautiful hand-picked designer, vintage and second-hand clothes, shoes and more for women, men and kids. Plus, the always incredible DJ Baldbeast will be playing the best tunes to shop to.
Maria Chenoweth, TRAID’s Chief Executive said, “The wealth of gorgeous clothes on offer won’t depend on buying new and every single purchase on the night will be donated directly to improve the lives of garment workers making clothes for our high streets in often dangerous and exploitative conditions.”
Plus, take part in TRAID’s Mending Activist Workshop for anyone interested in repairing clothes for good. Participants will also receive a mending kit hand-made from reclaimed textiles by the TRAID team.
Booking for this is essential so email firstname.lastname@example.org to grab your place.
The charity is also appealing for any donations of unwanted but wearable clothes – essential to helping TRAID stock its charity shops to raise funds for its projects to clean up the environmental and social justice problems in the global fashion industry.
On the night, TRAID will also be supporting the global campaign Fashion Revolution Day to ask Who Made My Clothes? We’ll ask our customers to send the fashion brands photos or video of their garments via social media, to ask who made them and in what conditions.
