House of Style: A Fashion DIY Event

Earlier this month, we hosted House of Style: A Fashion DIY Event at our flagship Seattle store. We joined forces with Sydney Mintle of Gossip & Glamour, and local designer Jordan Christianson of Jonquil & Mr. Black to spend an evening with local fashion and DIY (do-it-yourself) bloggers, talking about ways to modify your Goodwill-found fashions to make them your own. Scroll through photos from the event below!

Bloggers work on personalizing their Goodwill-found fashions. After shopping the store for a few minutes, bloggers returned to dismantle and upcycle their chosen pieces Bloggers took Goodwill finds, and transformed them into something new.Aimee from Savor The Thread took scissors to her original garment - and we're looking forward to seeing how it turned out!
