A huge thank you to THE OUTNET for hosting our stylish, talented and inspiring volunteers for breakfast yesterday.
We were given a privileged glimpse into the magical world of THE OUTNET and the YOOX NET-A-PORTER group as we were taken on a guided tour of their awe-inspiring space. With white walls, dark wooden floors and stunning chandeliers, it felt as if we were floating through the pages of a fashion magazine come to life. It was a treat to have the opportunity of peeking behind the scenes of this global fashion superstar.
As we settled back down with croissants and coffee, we were expertly guided through the key trends of A/W 2016 and then took a little time for staff and volunteers to talk and share ideas about the latest plans and developments at Smart Works.
THE OUTNET and Smart Works share a vision for empowering women through fashion. Together, we help more women believe in themselves, succeed at their job interview and start a new chapter in their lives. A particular thank you to THE OUTNET who are also our Saturday dressing volunteers, and who give their talents to help organise fundraising events, such as our fashion show.
Given yesterday’s film premier, just this once we will allow ourselves to say it. Absolutely fabulous.
