UAE. Over 80 fashion hungry women enjoyed an evening of Swishing last night at the UAE’s first ever Charity Swish event.

The event was hosted by Heels & Deals, the Dubai born network for female entrepreneurs, and held at the Bonnington Hotel. Every woman took a minimum of 3 fashion items such as clothes, shoes, bags and jewelry to swap and once everyone’s un-loved clothing was hung and displayed the Swish opened and it was a free-for-all!

Heels & Deals co-founder Georgie commented on the event, “Guests really enjoyed the evening and went home armed with new outfits that didn’t even cost them a dirham! At the end of the night, a total of 9 huge sacks of clothes and shoes were donated to the Dubai Center for Special Need’s charity shop as well as bags of other household items such as books and toys which were donated by guests.  We really met our objective of hosting a charitable, environmentally-friendly and fun event!”

While at the Swish, guests received free style and beauty advice from some of Heels & Deals’ members. Award-winning personal stylist Kelly Lundberg of Divine and Nicola Flifel of My Stylist were on hand to advise ladies on what looked good on them as well as sharing the season’s must-have fashion items. Susan Sutherland of Styling by Susan helped women get the most out of their make-up bag with essential de-cluttering advice.

“We'd like to thank all the ladies that attended the Swish for making it a great success and for all the support we received from our participating members and partners including the Bonnington Hotel and MY PA, the outsourced PA solution provider”, commented co-founder Claire Fenner.
