LAST SEASONâ€™S FASHION CAST OFFS
PROVIDE SHELTER FOR UNDERPRIVLEDGED CHILDREN IN HONG KONG
KEE Club accepting donations of luxury fashion pieces for LUXARITY Collect Event, January 28th and Monday 9th, 2015
LUXARITY, Hong Kongâ€™s high fashion designer charity sale, has announced it is accepting donations for pre-loved luxury designer clothes. The new and gently used items will then be re-sold with funds raised donated to support Motherâ€™s Choice and PathFinders, Hong Kong charities committed to sheltering and supporting children in Hong Kong.
A unique charity embracing the philosophies of fashion up cycling and recycling, LUXARITY will be accepting donations of pre-owned designer pieces at KEE Club (6/F, 32 Wellington Street, Central) on January 28th and February 9th 2015 from 10am â€“ 6pm. Accepting entire wardrobes and collections, the LUXARITY team will pick-up from homes or offices for those donating more than five pieces (contact LUXARITY limousine at email@example.com).
LUXARITY offers the opportunity to offer something back to the community — by selflessly donating pre-loved designer clothes and accessories. The proceeds raised going to Motherâ€™s Choice and PathFinders fashion cast offs are literally helping to shelter many babies and children in need.
LUXURITY accepts womenâ€™s, menâ€™s and childrenâ€™s clothes, accessories, shoes, bags and leather goods, from all major fashion houses across the world including Paris, Milan, London and New York.
With details of the second annual LUXARITY CHARITY SALE to be announced shortly, LUXARITY is aiming to raise funding to change many childrenâ€™s lives, and to boast designer pieces from the wardrobes of Hong Kongâ€™s best-dressed models, celebrities and style-setters including Ankie Beilke, Jaime Ho Ku, Diana Dâ€™Arenberg and many more.
This year, all proceeds from LUXARITY CHARITY SALE will support Motherâ€™s Choice and PathFinders. Both charities are committed to the welfare of children in Hong Kong.
LUXARITY is an initiative created by a group of committed professionals who aim to combine Luxury + Charity and Passion + Compassion to make a positive difference in the world. For details, visit www.luxarity.com
