Virtual Car Boot Sale

Saturday 15th May 2021

 Join us at our third Virtual Car Boot Sale on 15th May!

Following the success of our two Virtual Car Boot Sales in 2020, we were delighted to bring the all-day fashion extravaganza back on Saturday 15th May 2021

Hosted by Alex Eagle, we were joined by designers, style influencers, fashion icons and coveted brands who delved into their wardrobes and collections in aid of Women for Women International. 

Together we raised over £50,000 at a time when women survivors of war need our support the most.

Thank you to everyone who generously donated pieces to support the Virtual Car Boot Sale:

As a guilt-free alternative to fast fashion this was the circular economy and sustainability at its best. 

The Virtual Car Boot Sale would not have been possible without the support of our superstar committee:

Alex Eagle, Basma Khalifa, Eshita Kabra, Evie Henderson, Jasmine Hemsley, Maria Kastani and Mimma Viglezio. 

100% of the proceeds from the Virtual Car Boot Sale will go towards our work supporting women living in some of the world's most dangerous places. 

Meet our host


Alex Eagle is an Ambassador and trailblazer for Women for Women International. She has championed the Car Boot Sale from the beginning and is instrumental to the success of the event.

Alex is driven by a fascination for timeless objects and fashion that eschews trends, rather focusing on provenance and expertly crafted design. Honed by a career spanning magazines and fashion PR, Eagle’s eye and passion for original and masterfully made items has created the distinctive ethos of the Alex Eagle Studio.

Why now?

"We invite you to join forces with us to help women living in some of the world’s most dangerous places, women suffering greatly from poverty, inequality and abuse. We were deeply disappointed not to be able to hold our annual Car Boot Sale last year, but your response to the two virtual sales we held in its place raised our spirits. We were bowled over by your generosity. Funds raised enable us to support women survivors of conflict and war, helping them to rebuild their lives, learn skills, support themselves and take leadership in their communities. This next sale is very special indeed, we have asked our friends, celebrities and influencers to make a sacrifice and donate just one very treasured item. Laura Bailey rose to the challenge and has already gifted a beloved Chanel coat."

This is your chance to bid for loved and valuable items, to spoil yourself by owning a piece of fashion history and be a life changing force for the women we serve at a time when they need it the most.
