3 Things I Learned About Goodwill

Goodwill Logo

As a huge advocate of giving fashion a second wind beyond its original owner, I must say I was thrilled when Orlando’s Woman Of The Year and Goodwill Of Central Florida’s COO, Karla Radke contacted me about putting Goodwill Fashions into Runway Shows of Orlando, FL.

What I learned on their “WOW Tour” of the behind the scenes operations, was truly impressive.

  1. I had no idea Goodwill received so many Luxury Brand items, they have an entire department dedicated to authenticating each item and posting it for sale on their auction site!! See for yourself at http://goodfindscfl.com
  2. Goodwill has a boutique on Orange Avenue in Winter Park, FL where many brand new high end items end up with the tags still attached!!
  3. I learned funding from items we donate to Goodwill is used to help people find jobs. Goodwill employs many who have a harder time than the rest of us in finding jobs including people with disabilities, who are homeless or who’ve been in prison. They help them in many ways including providing job interview clothing and other basic needs.

On the tour I attended I met with workers from Orange County Corrections who asked me about coming up with programs for inmates who want to learn how to design, pattern and sew. At Orlando Fashion District we’re working on those solutions.

As a result of meeting with Goodwill, I am excited to say Orlando Fashion District is working with Adrienne G at Goodwill on producing their first Runway Show!  They’ve entered their “Little Black Dress” collection into the Fashion Events of the Southern Women’s Show!

There will be 3 opportunities to see some of the amazing and trendy designs in this collection, most being first time modeled by their own employees!!

This collection will debut at the Southern Women’s Show on Friday 10/26 at 3:30 pm and again on Saturday 10/27 at 3:30 pm in the Orange County Convention Center’s North Concourse, Hall B.

If you’d like to see more of the “Little Black Dress Collection” you’re invited to shop it at Goodwill’s Pop Up Shop on Tuesday 10/30 from 6-9 pm.

Come join us for a kid friendly Halloween Party and Pop Up Shopping Event at Studio One Orlando’s exciting new soundstage location at KDS One Studios, 3601 Vineland Rd, Suite 10, Orlando, FL 32811

We will have food, fun, magic, tricks and treats at a benefit event for Orlando Fashion District!

Admission is free, but space is limited so reserve your tickets today!


If you’d like to donate, sponsor, volunteer or otherwise be involved in these or other fun fashion opportunities please feel free to contact me!!
