A day-long public sale of designer and high-street clothes is set to take place in the RDS on May 13 to benefit Oxfam’s Fashion Relief.

All profits from the event will go towards Oxfam Ireland’s work tackling the hunger crisis in East Africa, Yemen and Nigeria.

The event provides the unique opportunity to pick up brand new items from designers and retailers, as well as pre-loved designer bargains donated by Irish stars.

Clothes and accessories have been donated by the likes of Bono, Lorraine Keane, Cillian Murphy, Kathryn Thomas, Rob Kearney and Amanda Byram.

Fashion Relief are asking for people to donate any unwanted, resellable items by bringing them to their nearest Oxfam Ireland shop in a clearly marked bag or box.

They are also looking for volunteers to help stock and staff the stalls at the event.

Running from 11am to 5pm, many of the celebrities will be involved in staffing their own stalls on the day. There will be two fashion shows on the day too, at 1pm and 3pm.

Tickets for the event cost €5, and are onsale from now.
