A Fashion Show with A Difference
Last year we hosted our first fashion show as part of our annual Fashionista Flip fundraising event. This was no ordinary fashion show though. Our models were all local moms, who had never modelled before, but thought it would be a fun thing to try.
The clothes were expertly curated from donations we had received for the Fashionista Flip, and the outfits were so spectacular that we almost had a bidding war for some of them!
Delectable refreshments and cream tea were provided by our local tea lady, Edwina Doddington of Escarpment Tea Rooms.
After enjoying tea and the fashion show, there was still plenty of time to shop for spectacular bargains. One shopper, a new teacher, bought 70 individual items of clothing, setting herself up with a brand new wardrobe for the year.
It was such a successful evening, that preparations are underway for our second one on Friday April 14th. We would love to see you there, or at our regular Fashionista Flip on Saturday April 13th.
What is the Fashionista Flip?
It’s an opportunity for you to renew and refresh your wardrobe with gently-used and nearly-new items, while supporting Milton Transitional Housing.
During the months leading up to the event, we have been accepting donations of good quality, gently used women’s clothing and storing them. Closer to the event our volunteers will be getting together to sort, organize by size and and arrange all the clothing on rolling racks and tables ready for the day.
All proceeds from the sale of tickets and apparel go directly to support our programs.
How you can help
- Donate your clothes. We are still accepting donations of women’s clothing, accessories and shoes.
- Help us to sort clothes. As you can imagine, we have a huge amount of clothing that needs sorting by size, hanging and organizing. This takes place during the week leading up to the show, and is always a fun few days.
- Come to one of the events. Tickets are available at fashionistaflip.ca
