Women For Women International Car Boot Sale

On Saturday 6th May Women for Women International set up shop at the home of London fashion, the Brewer Street Car Park, for a jam-packed afternoon of guilt-free retail therapy. The annual #SheInspiresMe Car Boot Sale, hosted by Alex Eagle and sponsored by Noor Fares and Venyx, has been dubbed “the most fashionable car boot sale in the world!”

Over 1,200 eager shoppers passed through our doors, picking up exclusive items from leading designers and fashion influencers, including Alex Eagle, Charlotte Olympia, Hikari Yokoyama, MatchesFashion.com, Refinery29 and many more. Bargains included exclusive sample pieces and designer items, with shoppers rummaging through a range of items from floor length dresses to chic t-shirts and accessories.

We are delighted to announce that together London’s most fashionable women and some fabulously fashion-forward men raised over £150,000 at the 2017 #SheInspiresMe Car Boot Sale! This incredible amount will enable us to empower and support more women, who have been the most deeply affected by war, violence and poverty.
