“The Brooklyn Out of the Closet is located near some of the nation’s top fashion schools, and in the fashion capital of the world, New York City,” said Michael Camacho, the New York Regional Manager for AHF. “We’re very excited to see what these talented young minds can produce, and we’re sure they are eager to see those looks contribute to fighting HIV/AIDS all around the world.”
Now through September 9, New York City-based designers, stylists, and fashion students are invited to create a multiple-piece look, take it to Brooklyn’s Out of the Closet Thrift Store – the New York location of a nationwide AHF vintage store collection where 96 cents of every dollar earned benefits AIDS treatment, testing, and advocacy in 28 countries worldwide – and upon donation of the look the stylist will be entered to win front row seats to the Tumbler & Tipsy fashion show at Style 360 Fashion Week through AHF’s Donate Style contest.
During a celebrity-studded in-store media event on September 10, just before the September 12 Tumbler & Tipsy fashion show, the top looks will be presented and a winner will be announced.
The Brooklyn Out of the Closet Thrift Store is the newest location for the unique thrift store where people can shop for a good cause and also have access to free HIV testing inside the store. The Brooklyn store, located at 475 Atlantic Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn, is the 22nd Out of the Closet location in the United States, joining stores in California, Florida, and Ohio. There is also one Out of the Closet location outside of the United States, located in Amsterdam.
AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is the largest non-profit HIV/AIDS healthcare provider in the USA. AHF currently provides medical care and/or services to over 230,000 individuals in 28 countries worldwide in the US, Africa, Latin America/Caribbean, Eastern Europe, and Asia.
