Exclusive Designer Charity Event to help unemployed on their journey to success

 

* Suited to Success Inc. to hold major 2016 fundraiser to raise money for unemployed men and women in need

* Designer labels up for grabs just in time for Melbourne Cup

 

Suited to Success (managing Dress for Success Brisbane) is holding its annual Bubbles & Beauties designer charity fundraiser event on Wednesday 5 October at Brisbane City Hall, Main Auditorium. All proceeds go towards programs to assist unemployed men and women in South-East Queensland.

The designer event is one of the main fundraisers for the not-for-profit organisation, attracting savvy shoppers who come to browse through racks of gorgeous new and pre-loved women’s clothing, bags, shoes and accessories for sale at outlet prices.

A Coach bag for $50, A Marchesa dress for $60 and a pair of Miu Miu shoes for $80 are just some of the high-end items up for grabs. Other labels that will be available on the night include Leona Edmiston, femme d'armes, rag & bone, Helmut Lang and Brisbane-based Sacha Drake.

Suited to Success General Manager Nicole Hard said this is the first time the sale has been held at Brisbane City Hall and noted that every outfit purchased would help change someone’s life.

“We are very excited about having our event at Brisbane City Hall. It provides the space we need for the over 1000 designer items that we have for sale and also a fantastic central location for everyone to attend,” Ms Hard said.

“This year we are also fortunate to have special guest Nikki Parkinson of Styling You host an exclusive style session. With Melbourne Cup only a few weeks away, it’s a great opportunity to find your outfit for the big day, while enjoying a glass of sparkling wine and watching our fashion models parade the fantastic designer clothes we have available at incredibly reduced prices?

We are also excited about having support from adrift, a company that believes in making women feel confident and beautiful through their ultimate online retail store and the crew at Fashion Weekly, Brisbane’s leading fashion magazine."

Tickets are $30, which includes a glass of bubbly on entry, and can be purchased online at trybooking.com/211868
