Dundee Fashion Week: Grab designer labelled clothes for bargain prices at event

Charlene Guild will be hosting the Greatest Swish Ever at the Steeple Church during Dundee Fashion Week.

Shopaholics will be able to grab some top designer labels at bargain prices during a sales event at Dundee Fashion Week.

The Greatest Swish Ever will offer a wide range of barely-used, second hand clothes and accessories from well-known high street brands.

For £10, bargain hunters can pick up two items, with proceeds going to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The event has been organised by Charlene Guild, 44, from Liff, a self-confessed shopaholic who set up her website Fashion Cash.in to trade high-quality goods at bargain prices.

She said: “In order to fund my shopaholic habit I set up Fashion Cash.in. It’s a hobby for me.

“The event is for everyone. We are looking for women of all ages, sizes and heights to donate so we will have a really good variety. There should be something for everyone.

“You can see what you are buying and try it on. You could come along and get a dress from Coast for £10.”

Charlene started Fashion Cash.in after selling clothes online and wanted to create something at a more local level.

“There is a really nice fashion community in Dundee,” she said.

“We have got lots of really well-dressed, funky people.

“I think it’s fantastic for Dundee to have its first fashion event.

“It’s a bit more social and somewhere people can get together.”

The Greatest Swish Ever is cash only and will take place at the Steeple Church, in Nethergate, on May 11 from 6pm.

There will be fitting rooms and style advisers will on hand to help answer any fashion-related questions.

The evening will also feature a prosecco bar.

Alexandra Harnett, founder of Dundee Fashion Week, said: “Charlene has already run quite a few successful swishes and this is going to be a fantastic, inclusive event.”

Dundee Fashion Week runs from May 7-13 in venues across the city, with a grand finale catwalk show being held at Caird Hall on the final day.
