Women For Women International
Women for Women International is a dynamic and dedicated charity who have created ‘sister-to-sister’ connections between isolated women affected by war initially in Bosnia and now across eight conflict-affected countries. Financial aid, social support and a vital letter exchange through a global network of ‘sponsor sisters’ helps female survivors of war to create brighter futures and rebuild their lives. We were delighted to support this year’s #SheInspiresMe Car Boot Sale, hosted by the charity’s ambassador and trailblazer, Alex Eagle.
Selfridges Car Park proved the perfect setting for the unique one-day shopping event. Fashion and beauty brands offered their favourite pieces to shoppers at discounted prices, and all proceeds were donated to Women for Women International. Key VIP’s & fashion influencers also donated statement pieces straight from their wardrobes for shoppers to buy.
Our founder Hannah Coffin edited and donated a special selection of signature designs, including embellished gowns and exclusive knitwear.
"Needle & Thread were honoured to support this premium fashion shopping event for the second time to help women survivors of war. The charity offers women year-long training, where they build support networks and develop skills to earn and save money, improve their family’s health and make their voices heard at home and in their community. We’re proud to play our part in this, and the Needle & Thread team had a really fun day!” – Hannah Coffin
With a line-up of 25 stalls from high street to designer brands, the day was buzzing with 1500 fashion-savvy shoppers looking for special items.
We’re proud to support Women for Women International, in their quest to help women survivors of war.
