#SheInspiresMe Car Boot Sale 2018

AN AFTERNOON OF EXCEPTIONAL FASHION AND BEAUTY, ALL TO BENEFIT WOMEN SURVIVORS OF WAR

On Saturday 12th May, Women for Women International hosted the biggest #SheInspiresMe Car Boot Sale yet; offering high fashion items at great prices. The event was hosted by Alex Eagle and The Store and in partnership with THE OUTNET.COM. Fashion designers and brands on the day include; Alex Eagle, Temperley London, Charlotte Olympia, M.i.h Jeans, Maria Kastani, Hikari Yokoyama and many more.

Alongside our fashionistas, there were beauty stations, restoration and upcycling stalls where shoppers personalised and restored their pre-loved clothes. There was plenty of food and drink pop-ups from London’s best restaurants and bars, to keep shoppers fuelled and hydrated through the afternoon.

The day offered fabulous entertainment! DJs on the day include Anoushka Seigler, Carly Wilford, Fiona Jane, Lucid Standard, Scarlett Lapidus and Zara Martin while Sharky & George and Art Buddies were on hand to entertain our youngest fashion lovers.
