Fashion Girls For Japan is proud to bring back the 60+ Desigers/60+ Rolling Racks designer sale in support of the recovery and relief efforts of the 3/11/11 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster. The sample sale to be held on Saturday 31 March from12noon-7pm and Sunday 1 April from 12noon-5pm at the Bowery Terrace in The Bowery Hotel will benefit Japan Society’s Japan Earthquake Relief Fund, and Home for All Foundation by KISYN, a Japan-based organization founded by five renowned Japanese architects: Toyo Ito, Riken Yamamoto, Hiroshi Naito, Kengo Kuma and Kazuyo Seijima, whose mission is to build communal gathering spaces for the displaced. As before, 100% of the proceeds will go towards Japan’s reconstruction and recovery efforts.
More than 60 New York-based designers have come together, some creating exclusive items for this special sale, and pledged to donate ‘one rolling rack’ of their clothing and accessories for this charity event. This year, the sale will include menswear as well as accessories and jewelry, and all items will be offered at 50% or more off the retail price. Last year with the help of Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, Diane von Furtstenberg, Doo Ri, Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler, Thakoon, Thom Browne, VPL, Zero Maria Cornejo and many others designers who contributed, FGFJ raised approximately $275,000.
