Women in front of Zonta Says NO to Violence Dispaly

Zonta’s 18-19 March Pre-loved Fashion Sale bigger and better than ever

The Zonta Club of Canberra Breakfast’s (ZCCB) annual Pre-loved Fashion Sale will be held on 18 to 19 March.  The event, a mecca for fashionistas, specializes in vintage and high-end fashion labels at an affordable price – perfect for Canberra fashionistas wanting to get out and about after lockdown.

This year, the sale will be held at the Ann Harding Conference Centre at the University of Canberra. ‘The new, larger and more modern venue enables us to welcome more people in a COVID-safe way,’ said Zonta Club of Canberra President Christine Magner.

‘Sadly, we had to postpone our sale last year due to COVID,’ said Christine.  ‘But it’s good news because we are bursting at the seams with quality fashion labels and accessories thanks to the generous donations of the women of Canberra.  We have never had so much stock.’

In addition to the in-person event, ZCCB has set up on online store on The Joyful Fashionista. ‘Even if you can’t make it in person, you can still support Zonta and get your fashion fix,’ said Christine.

Sustainability is core to the Pre-loved Fashion Sale.  All items are quality second hand donated items that might otherwise have gone to landfill. 

Money raised supports projects that empower women, including providing home starter kits to assist family and domestic violence survivors, birthing kits for women giving birth in developing countries, cushions for women recovering from breast cancer, and scholarships – especially in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. 

The Zonta Pre-loved Fashion Sale opens on Friday, 18 March, with a pre-sale event that includes champagne and finger food ($25). Entry on Saturday 19 March is free, with doors open from 9am to 3pm. 

Zonta is an international service club that empowers women through service and advocacy.  The Zonta Club of Canberra Breakfast meets once a month.
