Charity bazaar set in September-A A +A
Sunday, August 19, 2012
THE ballroom of the Rizal Memorial Library and Museum will become a treasure trove of Kate Spade and Prada handbags, evening gowns from Inno Sotto and Cary Santiago, and other brands to be sold at great prices.
The event dubbed as “Zee Fashion Finds,” a charity bazaar, has been organized through the collaborative effort of Zee Lifestyle magazine and the Wicked Sisters, with the Rizal Library Building and the Beautiful Cebu Movement Foundation as beneficiaries.
The two-day shopping spree is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 5 and 6.
Fashion Finds is a part of Zee Fashion Forward (ZFF), a four-day affair that celebrates style and fashion with activities such as Martinis & Movies and Pearl Talks, and culminating with a show from Dubai-based fashion designer Furne One.
“Since the curated closet is all the rage now, you can de-clutter your closet, sell or donate items to ZFF and proceeds can go to either a foundation of your choice or the Beautiful Cebu Movement. Or you just go and shop guilt-free, knowing that proceeds will do your preferred charity some good,” said Katsy Borromeo, Zee’s managing editor.
“Zee Fashion Finds is unique because it puts together for the first time slightly used or even brand new designer items like clothes, sunglasses and bags for sale in a fun way. Some of these items are owned by the personalities in Cebu and even celebrities.
This is really more than your usual designer bazaar,” said the Wicked Sisters as they prepare for the event.
Purchase of a Zee Lifestyle magazine on-site will serve as the entrance fee, which will include access to the Zee Fashion Finds and exhibits from contestants of Zee’s own Shades of Gres design competition, as well as other surprise activities.
