FASHION For ACTION Kicks Off
This Weekend At Housing Works

Fashionforaction
In a city full of thrift shops, some of the best come courtesy of Housing Works where finds can regularly be discovered amongst the donations. This weekend, the organization brings back one of its biggest fundraisers, Fashion for Action which will feature over a million dollars worth of merchandise donated by designers and retailers —perfect for shoppers who prefer a bargain that is not so very pre-owned.

The event will kick off with a VIP reception and early shopping event in Chelsea, and for those of you who are feeling particularly charitable, tickets are available HERE. Otherwise, the public sale begins on Friday November 19th at the Housing Works store in Chelsea. Thom Browne is this year's chair, and the host committee includes Brooks Brothers executives and retailer/designer Steven Alan, so hopefully there will be a good bit of Black Fleece and plenty of sweet checked shirts among the offerings. The list of participating donors includes pretty much any significant designer or label you can think of, so the pickings are usually choice as long as you don't dawdle...

For those of you unable to show up in person, there's an online auction HERE as well as an online preview sale up and running HERE which includes goods from Marc Jacobs, Black Fleece, Cynthia Rowley and 7 for all Mankind and will give you some idea of the low prices.

Housing Works is committed to providing lifesaving services to homeless and low income men and women living with HIV/AIDS and has established itself as one of the city's most effective charitable organizations, so Fashion for Action is one of The Shophound's favorite kinds of events, a win for both shoppers and the recipients of Housing Works' valuable services.

Fashion for Action Friday, November 19 through Sunday the 21st at the Housing Works Chelsea Thrift Shop, 143 West 17th Street
