SPRING FASHION SWAP
March 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm
On Saturday, March 16 from 12-2:30 PM join style enthusiast, Perrine DeShield for a Spring Fashion Swap at BlkMrkt CLT in Camp North End. This swap is a fundraiser for Bromley Academy, an all-girls school in Liberia, West Africa, which lost funding. As this event falls during Women’s History Month, Perrine encourages the stylish women of the Queen City to not only get a head-start on their spring cleaning, but with their contributions, empower so many young girls in Liberia with invaluable education.
Participants will bring 5-10 gently used/new, spring fashion clothing items and accessories to the swap in exchange for items from other fashionistas. Tickets will be given to participants for every accepted swap item. ALL sizes are encouraged.
To avoid long lines and to maximize time to inspect for quality, there will be a drop-off time of 12:00pm to 1:00pm inside BlkMrkt. During this time, participants can sip from the complimentary mimosa bar, shop local clothing vendors, network and more. Then from 1:00pm to 2:30pm, we’ll open doors to the transformed pop-up shop (inside BlkMrkt) where attendees will swap out their items by cashing in their tickets. Tables and clothing racks will be sorted and labeled by type of clothing and size, from small to plus size.
Not only will participants leave with new wardrobe pieces, but they can feel great knowing that any remaining clothing from the swap will be donated to charity.
Tickets are $10 if purchased in advance and $15 at the door and portions of the proceeds from this event will support the girls of Bromley Academy.
