Style Saves Back to School 2018

On August 18th and 19th, 2018, Style Saves teamed up with the community and hosted its’ 8th annual Back-To-School event at Mana Wynwood Convention Center, in the heart of Wynwood, Florida. The organization served over 5,000 Florida students with brand new uniforms, outfits and school supplies for the new school year, along with fun filled days of activities.

The goal is to alleviate the pressure of going back to school as a problem many financially low-income families face. By providing these necessary items, Style Saves helps turn the start of a new school year into a fun event instead of a stressful time.

Students from over 60 organizations including Miami-Dade Public Schools, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Voices For Children, His House,The Lodge Miami, Irie Foundation, Mentor Network, Lotus House, The Guatemalan-Maya Center, and many more, attended the event. Students were invited to shop our pop-up shop and stay for an afternoon of fun including arts & crafts, dance classes, a photo booth, face painting, and several more.

Style Saves X Topshop Topman

For all the times we’ve endlessly searched for Topshop stores in Florida, our moment is finally here! This year, the brand has just opened their first store at Aventura Mall.

Pioneering their entrance into the vibrant and beautiful city of Miami, Style Saves had the honor of partnering together into the new territory. We joined forces and launched a pop-up shop during Miami Art Week.

We kicked off the week on Tuesday, December 5th, with a shopping party hosted by the lovely Alina De La Vega and Ayana Rodriquez. Our friend DJ YSL kept us entertained with the greatest 80’s hip-hop music, while Harmless Harvest brought coconut water to keep us hydrated and enjoy. A personalization station was open with a local artist ready to create unique designs or script on denim jackets and tote bags. 

What better way to have fashion meet philanthropy, all during the heart and soul of the funnest week of the year. Art and fashion lovers in Miami- rejoice!

Hosted at our newly renovated, Style Saves HQ in the heart of Wynwood, the curated selection of beautiful clothes and accessories was everything we needed, with just enough time for the holidays. For each sale made, 20% was donated to help support our students.

Closing out the pop-up on Saturday, December 9th, we raised an incredible total of $6190.30! We’re so excited to be able to use this towards the upcoming needs of our students in the community. A huge thanks to everyone that came out and shopped- we were able to raise almost $7,000 from this event, and can’t wait for the next!
