AWTE Charity Frock Swap sponsored by Bookabed


  • Date: Tuesday 18th September
  • Time: 6pm – 9:30pm

Sign up and get ready to swap ‘til you drop at the inaugural AWTE charity frock swap!

Charity, Fashion, cocktails and nibbles will be the order of the day at this AWTE summer event, which is kindly sponsored by Bookabed.

After indulging in some cocktails and nibbles, the frock swapping will begin. If you bring 1 dress, you will receive 1 token. If you bring 2 dresses, you will receive 2 tokens, and so on. Tokens can then be used to ‘purchase’ dresses.

Dresses that remain at the end of the evening can be taken home again, or donated to charity.

All proceeds from this event will go to ‘Dress for Success’Dress for Success Dublin, founded by stylist, designer and tech entrepreneur, Sonya Lennon, is a charity that promotes the economic independence of women by providing career development tools and a support network. They also campaign for equality in the workplace throughout industries, and across the country.

Since 2011, Dress for Success have supported over 2,000 women with the professional clothing, skills and development opportunities they needed to secure employment and achieve success. 57% of the women who come through their doors go on to secure employment, and 75% are where they want to be, whether that’s working or in further training and education.

This will be one of our most popular events of the year and attendance is expected to be high, so please purchase your ticket ASAP to avoid disappointment. Our venue for this event is the Trinity City Hotel which boasts a beautiful courtyard – weather permitting we plan to hold a barbecue in this space.
