Come along to the beautiful Hanworth House on May 22 and shop for a good cause at the Corporate Clothing Pop-up.

The movement to eradicate domestic abuse is gathering momentum.

Adding their weight to this is both The Women Lawyers Association of Queensland (WLAQ) and Women’s Legal Service (WLS), who have decided to take action and put on the Corporate Clothing Pop-up.

Not sure what WLS does? They provide free legal advice and information for women in Queensland, many of whom have suffered domestic violence. At the moment they help more than 3000 women a year, but demand is more than twice that so all funding is vital.

All monies raised on the night will be funnelled straight back into WLS to aid their work on the frontline. Every year they assist thousands of Queensland women and children who experience domestic abuse.

The clothing sold on the night will all be reclaimed fashion and donations of corporate and designer clothing in great condition (including accessories, handbags and shoes) are currently being sought.

And unless you’re a ruthless cupboard cleaner, most women have racks of clothes and accessories they don’t use and will probably never wear again.

So if you know anyone who is planning a spring clean (or needs to), gently give them a little push and then tell them to donate any suitable items to the Corporate Clothing Pop-up. Plus if you attend, you can look forward to exciting raffle draws and giveaways on the night.

Also, if you need some styling tips, you could ask Styling You blogger Nikki Parkinson, who will be attending the event.

If for some reason there are clothes that are not sold on the night, all items will be donated directly to Dress for Success.

It is free entry but organisers are encouraging a gold coin donation at the door, which seems like a fair trade off considering you’ll probably be scoring clothing bargains as soon as you start to scout the racks.

Corporate Clothing Pop-up is on Friday May 22, starting at 6pm at Hanworth House, 109 Lytton Road, East Brisbane. To register, click here. For more information, check out our event guide listing.
