We offer pre-loved designer wear at ridiculously low prices for women who love fashion and the environment. Unlike some consignment stores, Fashion Forward is a social enterprise that donates 100% of its proceeds to support the Jewish House crisis centre.
Nicole and Sharon share a love for fashion, community and a passion for the environment. This mutual love saw them develop Fashion Forward - a social enterprise with a conscience - finding new homes for pre-loved designer wear, with 100% of proceeds going to Jewish House.
Since its inception in 2020, Nicole and Sharon have saved tons of clothing items from landfill and raised funds to provide Jewish House crisis care to many women and children.
It's a labour of love for the two of them and they have both found FF has become a hub for women. Shopping in the studio is a lot of fun, it's a total feel-good experience. Where else can you shop, get incredible clothing at bargain-basement prices and support women in crisis? It's the ultimate guilt-free shopping experience.
How We're Different
By donating and shopping with Fashion Forward, you are able to limit the amount of fashion that ends up in landfill, and give these clothing items a second life. Feel good about updating your wardrobe and shopping sustainably without additional manufacturing and carbon emission resources, and without contributing to the demands of fast fashion. We know that these are small steps towards creating a better future.
At the same time, 100% of proceeds go to supporting women and children assisted by Jewish House - providing crisis, temporary, and longer-term accommodation, a 24/7 crisis call line that connects people with professionals who offer urgent assistance, in-house psychologists and counsellors to those who would otherwise be unable to access professional help, facilitating life skills, resilience building and parenting education workshops to the local community, and providing advocacy support from their social services staff.
Donate Your Pre-Loved
We are currently accepting designer donations for consignment. Give your wardrobe a much-needed spring clean and get in contact with our team for the collection or drop off of your items! We rely on the generosity of the public to keep our store stocked with amazing items. By donating your pre-loved designer clothes, you will reduce waste and feel good knowing that your items are getting a second life, and helping to raise funds for those less fortunate.
In FY21/22, Fashion Forward raised $88,000 for Jewish House. In the year ahead, we have a goal of $100,000 which will go directly to providing interim housing to women and children fleeing crisis.
