To celebrate International Women's Day this Friday March 8th, we are holding a clothing fair with some of our closest (and most stylish) mates – including The Ladies Network gals, ellou Studio and stylist Susannah Best. On Saturday March 9th Well Made Clothes will be selling samples, sale items, discounted end of line pieces and more, while our friends will be selling pre-loved items from their own wardrobes.

There will also be coffee (of course) and treats (including vegan options!) baked by the Well Made Clothes team. All proceeds from the sales of stalls and the bake sale treats will be donated to Lou's Place: 'a unique, community-based refuge for women in crisis, homeless, feeling isolated or needing support', and the only daytime refuge for women in Sydney.

Shopping vintage and extending a garment's lifecycle by passing it along to someone else are some of our favourite ways to minimise the impact of our wardrobes. As Eliza Brockwell from ellou studio points out, "when a vintage piece of clothing has lasted long enough to make it to a sale rack years later, that's a pretty good sign that it's here for the long haul. I'm pretty particular about the clothes that I buy, so when I settle on something I want it to last. That's the same mentality behind my jewellery brand, ellou studio, which uses high-quality materials and classic designs that you can reach for time and time again."

Working as part of an incredible community of socially-motivated creative women here in Sydney, we can't think of a better way to bring everyone together around International Women's Day than with a market stall in support of a safe place for women. The Well Made Clothes Market will be happening from 9am-3pm at our Marrickville warehouse, 2 Brompton Street. So come along to mingle with some like-minded women and shop preloved clothes and accessories, including vintage and sample seconds.
