On Saturday November 19th, Schools plus KAA hosted it’s very first alternative fashion bring and buy and for a good cause: Fundraising!
The event was organised by alternative fashion photographer Saoirse Clohessey, as part of a series of fundraising events she has been running around London the past few months, focusing on Japanese Alternative Fashion.
All money raised from these events are going towards her fundraising for Raleigh International Trust.
Raleigh focuses on working through, for and with youth to inspire and make positive change
Saoirse is preparing to travel to Nepal to take on a volunteering role that combines charity with creativity as she will be both Project Manager and Expedition Photographer, helping the people in rural areas of Nepal support themselves after the tragic earthquake of 2015.

Bring and Buy in a Classroom?
This alternative fashion Bring & Buy literally transformed one of our spacious double classrooms into a colourful vibrant selling space.
With a range of sellers from the London alternative japanese fashion community, from individuals that were just in need to clean up their closet to small independent fashion brand owners, the event was a huge success.
Here are some of the impressive items that got sold in our premises on the day. I think we can agree that this looks more like a colourful wonderland than a school classroom.
Schools plus always enjoys working with vibrant and creative individuals and always tries to offer the best space option for any organiser’s dream event to come to life.
We would like to thank Saoirse for choosing our venue for this unique bring and buy and we wish her the best of luck with her adventures in Nepal.
