Put this date in your diary: Saturday, May 11. The Women For Women International #SheInspiresMe car boot sale hosted by The Store’s Alex Eagle in partnership with TheOutnet.com has invited its celebrity supporters to set up their tables in Soho’s Brewer Street car park. That’s where shabby car boot reference ends, this one is definitely more glam than bric-a-brac. Just to name a few, Charlotte Dellal, Eugenie Niarchos, Maria Kastani, Hikari Yokoyama, Tiphaine De Lussy, even Dame Helen Mirren will be there to sell their wardrobe clearouts. Not to mention past season collections from brands like Manolo Blahnik, Nicholas Kirkwood, Cashmere In Love, Temperley London and Jane Carr. There will be definitely some shopping binge-worthy pre-loved and bargain priced goodies. Shoppers will have the opportunity to restore, personalise and upcycle pre-loved pieces and have a quick makeover by Charlotte Tilbury’s team as well. “This year, we have an even more incredible offering than ever before, with wonderful donations some of my most stylish friends and chicest brands. It’s an honour to work on this event and help make a difference for women who live in some of the world’s most dangerous places,” gushes Alex Eagle, Creative Director of The Store.
All proceedings from the car boot sale will go to Women For Women International, a charity which has helped almost half a million women survivors of war rebuild their lives. With over 40 brutal armed conflicts across the globe and unprecedented levels of violence against women, Women for Women International’s support is ever so crucial. There’s an urgent need for more funding to give women who have suffered the trauma of war the practical skills and knowledge they need to rebuild their lives for brighter futures for themselves and their families. Last year’s event raised over £236,000, so let’s be part of raising even more money for a worthy cause.
