The Closet x MISSGUIDED Preview

The Closet and MISSGUIDED team up to bring you one of the most highly anticipated fashion events of the year, all in the name of their chosen charity, Manchester Mind

The Closet is a student-led charity clothing shop occupying the old RBS building at The University of Manchester, which aims to promote sustainable fashion and youth entrepreneurship.

It represents a collective of youth creativity and aims to showcase the power of student action, by encouraging participation in charity projects.

Since The Closet’s opening in February, the store has been host to a variety of fundraising events such as their cheese and wine night and “Fill a bag for £5” sale. But their next event is one that has had everybody talking!

The Closet have teamed up with the clothing company MISSGUIDED to hold a sample sale and it is expected to be the biggest event at The Closet to date.

The event begins this Monday with the official launch party, where you can expect heaps of fashion, live music and a whole bundle of freebies. The event is free for anybody to attend so make sure you get down early to avoid disappointment!

The MISSGUIDED sample sale will occupy The Closet for a further two weeks, with all proceeds going to Manchester Mind, a mental health charity. The store will be open from Monday 11th April – Friday 22nd April between 2pm and 6pm.
