Designer Vault Vintage Chanel Trunk Show 11/20/2014

Designer Vault Vintage Chanel Trunk Show 2014

Last year, I attended Designer Vault’s “Vintage Designer Trunk” show, which featured so many wonderful vintage designer items, including the most Chanel I’ve ever seen in one place at one time (original post here).  It was a lovely event, where a percentage of the sales went to benefit Promises2Kids.

Since then, they’ve been put on the Coco Chanel map due to Miley Cyrus and Refinery 29 (click the link for their blog post).  So it’s no surprise that this year, Designer Vault will present another vintage trunk show, but will feature all Chanel clothing, handbags and jewelry, where 10% of the sales will again benefit Promises2Kids.

Promises2Kids annually provides over 3,300 current and former foster youth in San Diego County with the tools, opportunities, and guidance they need to address the circumstances that brought them into foster care, overcome the difficulties of their past, and grow into healthy, happy and successful adults.

All of the details are below on how you can RSVP, and I’ll be in attendance so I hope to see you there!
