Fashion for Flood Relief

March 28, 2011

Last week I attended the Fashion for Flood Relief event at The Villager in Brisbane’s CBD. Organised by Alison Triffett from Style Counsel (who I interviewed on Design Spot), it went off like a fire cracker!

The event was created to continue bringing donations to the people who need it most in flood-affected Queensland. Even though some time has passed since the January-flood, so many people are only just starting to rebuild their lives and while this is no longer top of the list on the nightly news, there is still a long way to go.

So, wanting to help, Alison drew on her contacts, spread the word and gradually formed a very successful event… Clothes were donated for sale in the little bargain-basement shop at The Villager and 100% of all proceeds raised through ticket sales to the event and bargains snaffled on the night went to the relief effort. It was a smashing evening with shopping, champagne and interviews with several female radio and television personalities, including Heather Foord, Melissa Downs and Emily-Jade O’Keefe.

Read more about the night on Alison’s blog. Thanks Al for your hard work. You’re an inspiration!

    How lovely of you to blog about this event! It was an honour to have your there – and given how crazy/busy you must have been yourself after your own very successful exhibition, for you to have come out on a week night to support me really means a lot!

    You are truly a woman of great style KT…watch this space people…that’s a little hint…
