Join the big fashion pop-up and shop for a good cause with Smart Works

4 Mins

After the success of last year’s glamorous pop-up in association with Smart Works Edinburgh, we’ve decided to do it all over again... 

The second edition of this unmissable charity event combines three of our favourite things–shopping, makeovers and wine. We’re teaming up with some of the capital’s top independent boutiques and beauty experts to bring you a fabulous evening of shopping, pampering and amazing discounts. Best of all, every penny raised on the night goes to helping women get back to work.

Head along to enjoy a guilt-free splurge in aid of Smart Works, the Edinburgh based charity that empowers women in need by providing them with clothes and arming them with the practical tools and confidence needed to succeed in an interview and start a new chapter.

Look who’s joining us...
