Selfridges to open Britain’s biggest pop-up charity shop
Annie Lennox has led a selection of A-list stars to create, set-up, stock and staff the charity pop-up shop. Thousands of vintage, high-end and celebrity-donated items, plus the best accessories, homewares, music and books from Oxfam shops across the country, will be gathered together.
The pop-up shop will be located in the Selfridges’ Ultralounge (lower ground floor) for one week only from Friday 14th to Thursday 20th.
For lovers of all things vintage and high-end second hand- this is a brilliant chance to get your hands on some fabulous pieces!
British BAFTA award winning actress Carey Mulligan has also kindly donated her stunning BAFTA night dress (above) by French label Vionnet. The dress will be one of the pieces auctioned off online at a starting price of £50. The auction will take place on Thursday 13 May from 10am. See http://www.oxfam.org.uk/curiosityshop for more information.
Funds raised by the shop and auction will be supporting Oxfam’s women’s projects across the world including Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Democratic Republic of Congo, West Africa and South Africa. These projects protect, support and empower vulnerable women: campaigning against violence, empowering them to fight HIV and AIDS and offering the poorest girls the chance of education.
Carey says: “I’m honoured to be able to donate my Bafta dress to support Oxfam’s work helping women living in extreme poverty across the world.”
