Selfridges launch Oxfam pop-up shopWednesday, 12 May 2010
Selfridges has joined forces with Oxfam to host one of the
biggest charity pop-up shops in Britain. From Friday 14 May to Thursday 20 May the Ultralounge, located on the lower ground floor of the department store, will play host to The Oxfam Curiosity Shop – a unique pop-up shop run by a host of A-list stars, including Annie Lennox and Zoë Ball.
Shoppers will be able to browse handpicked vintage items donated by celebrities, as well as clothing, accessories, books, homewares and art previously donated to Oxfam shops.
A special collection of Livia Firth’s red carpet dresses and high-end pieces donated by the likes of Alexa Chung, Helen Mirren, Will Young and Natalie Imbruglia will add to the human generosity. There will also be designer contributions from Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney, Roger Vivier and many more.
Proceeds from The Oxfam Curiosity Shop will go directly to women’s projects supported by Oxfam. These projects protect and support vulnerable women: campaigning against violence, empowering them to fight HIV and AIDS and offering the chance of education.
