Late Night Charity Shopping to Clean Up Fashion
On Thursday 27 April, 6:30pm – 9pm, during Fashion Revolution Week, fashion reuse charity TRAID is donating all sales made at a special late night opening in its Dalston charity shop to mark the anniversary of the devastating Rana Plaza factory collapse which killed 1,133 garment workers in April 2013.
Show solidarity with the people who make your clothes by shopping TRAID’s packed rails for beautiful hand-picked designer, vintage and second-hand clothes, shoes and more, all to the sounds of our live charity shop DJ.
Plus, take part in TRAID’s ‘Protect Your Wardrobe Workshop’ and make a moth repellent ‘tea bag’ using completely natural ingredients of herbs and spices. You’ll find out how to extend the life of your clothes, and embroider a message of commitment to cherish the clothes you love. All materials included and you will take home what you make.

Maria Chenoweth, TRAID’s Chief Executive said, “Come shop TRAID’s fabulous second-hand stock in our flagship charity shop in the heart of Dalston. You’ll be celebrating the power of reusing the clothes and resources we already have, while raising funds to clean up the fashion industry and support garment workers.
All sales made between 6:30pm – 9pm will be donated directly to a project funded by TRAID in Bangladeshproviding day-care, good food and education for the children of garment workers, mostly single mothers. Find out more about the project here.
