If you're in the north east and fancy a night out of great fashion you can take home, come along to World Headquarters in Newcastle for Clothes Under the Hammer on May 7. A large collection of top quality men’s and women’s vintage clothing as well as wedding attire, coats and jackets and one off-items donated by independent boutiques will be up for auction to benefit the West End Refugee Service. (I happened to have donated a few pieces myself, including unworn - yes really! - pieces by Marc by Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and Derek Lam. )
For a £3.00 donation you can gain access to these wonderful fashion finds and support asylum seekers and refugees living in Newcastle. Tickets are available online here
The event also includes a fashion show, street dance performance and a short film screening from the West End Refugee Service.
It’ll be a fun night - the bar will be open! - so come on down and indulge your sartorial and charitable spirits.
