Fashion lovers won’t want to miss this one! Need an excuse to shop ‘til you drop? It doesn’t get better than the Vintage With Love fashion sale taking place at The Forum at the campus in Bryanston between 1 – 3 June 2018. All proceeds go straight towards an array of incredible charities focused on educational support for our country’s youth.
How Does it Work?
Right, so the event organisers encourage fashion designers, store owners, and even everyday fashionistas to clear out their storerooms and / or wardrobes and donate previously loved clothing to the cause. All of these stylish vintage items will be sold at the pop up stalls at the event in an effort to collect money for the charities.
Even if you don’t have any of your own clothes to donate, you can take part and do your bit by simply showing up to shop – you’ll walk away with a few new vintage fashion pieces and the warm feeling of knowing that you did a good deed!
