Today, she’s here for her “second dressing room,” where two stylists help her pick out a capsule wardrobe of five more clothes. “It’s such a fantastic experience at Smart Works – you feel confident, relaxed and your mood is always uplifted,” she beams.
This November, you can do your part to support women like Tina. As the charity’s media partner since 2018, The Telegraph is once again co-hosting the annual pop-up event, the Telegraph x Smart Works fashion sale at Somerset House, where clothes and accessories from dozens of Designer and high street brands will be sold at up to 70% off, with every penny going to charity. Anyone who has attended in previous years will know that this is a truly joyous occasion, with plenty of great deals to be won and the certainty that you are contributing to an incredibly worthy cause.
“At Smart Works, we believe fashion is a force for good,” says Kate Stephens, CEO of Smart Works. “We know that when a woman looks good and feels good about herself, she can change her life. Selling at Somerset House brings this ethos to life. People come together to have fun, enjoy the fashion and celebrate together, while raising vital funds to help women in the UK transform their lives and those of the families they often support.As we face the devastating impact of the crisis in the cost of life, it couldn’t be more timely or more important.
