Blogger-Curated Fashions, Advice Available During Free Event
Goodwill’s largest-ever curated fashion event will be Saturday, April 13, when more than 20 fashion influencers will gather at the nonprofit’s Rivergate area store to show off hand-picked finds and discuss style and bargain-hunting tips with the public.
Goodwill’s Style with a Purpose Meet-Up will be held from 1-5 p.m. at 2101 Gallatin Pike N. in Madison. During the free event, guests can shop merchandise selected by fashion influencers from 13 Midstate Goodwill stores. Guests can also chat with influencers to learn strategies for assembling inexpensive, eye-catching outfits.
Refreshments will be served, and numerous door prizes — including Goodwill gift cards and 12 styling sessions with fashion influencers — will be given away. A silent auction of merchandise from OnlineGoodwill.com will be held, and a selection of jewelry will be on hand.
While several of these fashion experts have been part of Goodwill’s six previous Style with a Purpose Meet-ups, others will be new to the experience. Among the latter is White, an award-winning fashion industry veteran who spent years in New York and Washington, D.C., before joining the The Fashion Office in Nashville. White said for him the event will be a chance to step outside of his comfort zone — something he recommends for all his style clients.
