Catwalk show & Auction at Oxfam make do & mend event

"Make Do And Mend" event hosted by Oxfam Chelsea at St Mary’s Church , Marylebone on Saturday 28th November.

 

Inspired by the WW2 campaign, the event offered visitors an alternative way to get their fashion fix. A selection of many fantastic Oxfam pieces were strutted up the catwalk and then auctioned off. There was also a customising corner, swap shop and many stalls - something for everyone.

 

Supporting Oxfams work in Haiti. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. It has been plagued by political unrest for most of its history and natural disasters frequently sweep the nation. Over 80 per cent of the population lives below the poverty line & literacy rates stand at just 52 per cent.

 

To support Oxfam go online or visit a local Oxfam shop

 

Event organised by Oxfam shop Chelsea, 432 King's Road, Chelsea, London - oxfamshopf8004@oxfam.org.uk Tel: 0207 351 6863
