Gift Of Giving

Dress for success Christchurch began in 2003 as a non-profit organisation that provides appropriate clothing, a support team and career development tools to women. In the future, lower socioeconomic women are able to develop their financial knowledge and find sustainable jobs and lifestyles. This type of organisation is critical during these COVID-19 times. Dress for success Christchurch has supported over 5000 women in Christchurch since, and due to our community and their sponsors, dress for success Christchurch is able to sustainably and successfully help more women everyday.


Fashion society is working with Dress For Success Christchurch this Christmas in hopes to spread awareness and help them continue to empower and educate women for success. Fashion society is not only a store but a community of strong women with a love for fashion both workers and shoppers alike. Our goal this Christmas is to show our support by reaching out to our community and offering our support by looking into our ever growing closets and clearing out items we no longer need.


So how can you help? We will be accepting donations from our customers in both our stores from the 1st of December till the 31st of December.

May we ask all donations to fit the following criteria: Must be new or nearly new, good quality, corporate/work-appropriate or smart/casual footwear and clothing, handbags, accessories, jewellery and new cosmetics or toiletries.

During these times the gift of giving is more important than ever. COVID-19 has impacted many families over 2020/2021 so now is the most important time to support our community if we are able. By donating these items for Dress For Success Christchurch, we are empowering other women and improving their wellbeing's, careers and lives.

Drop off your pre-loved items to Fashion Society stores any time in December.

Fashion Society Merivale: 121 Papanui Road, Merivale

Fashion Society The Crossing: 16/166 Cashel St, CBD



To show you our appreciation for supporting those in need this Christmas we’ll give you a gift from our lucky dip. Gifts up to the value of $250.

We had Gemma McCaw visit our Merivale store to drop off her pre-loved items that she’d someone to receive this Christmas.
