11TH - 13TH OCTOBER

TRUMAN BREWERY, BRICK LANE

On 11th - 13th October, Kids Company and Grazia are joining forces for Gladrags & Handbags, our annual three day designer fashion sale!

Gladrags & Handbags will take place at the Loading Bay Gallery, Old Truman Brewery, Dray Walk E1, just off Brick Lane.

Supporters will be able to lay their hands on stunning clothing, bags and accessories from top brands including Burberry, Prada, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, Mulberry, Reiss, and many more, at amazingly reduced prices. All items are new with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Kids Company.

The event will raise money for our Christmas period, when we will be supporting over 4,000 of London's most vulnerable children, young people and their families on Christmas Day. Each child will receive gifts and a yummy Christmas meal as well as a party with games and entertainment for all. We will also provide food gift bags for over 7,500 people in the hope of easing the stress during what can be a very difficult time of year.
