The Dresses!


Each year we have approximately 30,000 pre-loved dresses for sale which are like new! The bulk of our dresses on the day will be Coast, TopShop, Karen Millen, Monsoon and Closet – and the vast majority of these will set shoppers back just €10-€30 on the day!




Celebrity Dresses

Where celebrity dress donations are concerned, we are supported each year by some of the biggest stars in Ireland including Amy Huberman, Charlie Murphy, Sarah Greene Una Healy, Victoria Smurfit, Caroline Morahan, Aoibhinn McGinnitty, Deirdre O’Kane, Kathryn Thomas, Sinead Kennedy and many more. You can check out some of our previous celebrity-donated dresses and designer dresses here .
