What's On

Pre-loved fashion sales

We operate a sustainable clothing model where donated items are used to provide beautiful outfits to our Clients to support them on their journey to employment. Where the donation is surplus to current needs or not suitable for the occasion, we recycle the item via a series of vital fundraising fashion sales.
