Irish Design Residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris | Applications now Open
Tuesday 24 November 2020
NCBI (National Council for the Blind of Ireland) is setting up the first ever charity Pop-Up Shop on Grafton Street in Dublin, having secured for free access to 110 Grafton Street for the month of December, and is looking for donations from Irish fashion designers.
NCBI’s chain of 114 charity shops are a vital source of funding to deliver life changing services to people who are blind or vision impaired across Ireland. Being positioned on Grafton Street ahead of Christmas gives us a unique opportunity to:
This will be no ordinary charity shop as Re:Newed for NCBI was inspired by the London version that Harrod’s have developed, which was curated by Stella McCartney and runs every year for the month of March with NSPCC.
Any donations received from designers will be publicised in the store in a dedicated ‘Irish Designers Section’ and across all our media channels. Also some fashion journalists have already expressed an interest in covering the story.
If you are interested in making a donation, please contact Nicola Quigley on 083 093 0899.
Thank you in advance as your donation will help NCBI make up lost revenue (in excess of €1m) due to the temporary shop closures in 2020 arising from the COVID-9 pandemic.
