Fashionable Finds Featured at Goodwill's Second-Hand Chic Show



03/01/11

Goodwill of Delaware and Delaware County will be showcasing some of the stylish clothing items that can be found at their 16 retail stores during the first-ever second-hand chic fashion show. The event will be held on Friday, March 11th at the Film Brothers Movie Co-op, located at 205 N. Market Street in downtown Wilmington starting at 6:00 p.m.

The models and fashion stylists featured in the show will be provided by UDress, the University of Delaware’s fashion magazine, with hair and makeup designs courtesy of Colour Roxx Salon and Spa of Newark. The night of fun will feature wine donated by ShureLine Electrical and The Right Bottle of Smyrna. Light hors d'oeuvres for the evening will be provided by Urban Gourmet and Extreme Pizza, both located in Wilmington.

The fashion fun-fest will also include a special appearance from Rocky BlueWinkle, the team mascot for the Wilmington Blue Rocks baseball team who will unveil his new uniform for the 2011 season.

“Besides having a night of fun on Lower Market Street, this event is aimed at dispelling the notion that the clothes sold at Goodwill are old and out-of-style,” said Susan Murray, vice-president of sales and operations for Goodwill. “We wanted the public to see that our stores have some great current and vintage fashions, which with a little imagination and creativity can have you looking like the models seen in fashion magazines or on television shows.”

Murray said that tickets for Goodwill first-ever second-hand chic fashion show can be purchased online for $20 by visiting www.goodwillde.org and following the link on the homepage.

For nearly 90 years, Goodwill of Delaware and Delaware County’s mission has been to improve the quality of life for people with barriers to self-sufficiency through the Power of Work and has been supported by proceeds from retail sales and donations. In 2010, Goodwill of Delaware and Delaware County provided nearly 11,000 services to individuals throughout the region.
