Get your shopping bags ready as the number one charity shopping event Glamorous Giving is back again with its sixth edition – this time, bigger than ever before.
Brought to you by Singapore-based jewellery label Stones That Rock and in support of Singapore Committee for UN Women, Glamorous Giving will see 37 local brands selling everything from shoes to fine jewellery, ceramics to rugs and wine to skincare at slashed prices.
The two day event (September 6 and 7, 2016) isn’t any run-of-the-mill clearance sale. “We are very strict in our requirements for brands to participate; they have to genuinely mark down prices and offer serious discounts”, says Leah Lambert, founder of Glamorous Giving.
To get you counting down the days to some serious bargain hunting, we’ve selected 5 brands you shouldn’t miss, who will go gaga over their goodies, and the items that will definitely be in our shopping carts.
Owner and Managing Director of Zarabelle, Cherie Ball, is excited to be returning to Glamorous Giving for the third time. “The fair has a real spirit of camaraderie, and all the brands are incredibly supportive of each other. The range of sale items at each Glamorous Giving is fantastic and I expect there will be some amazing bargains during this edition.”
Championing independent designers from the UK, Europe and North America, Zarabelle stuns with a wide assemblage of hip and versatile handmade jewellery and accessories perfect for the accessory queen.
MFY bracelets and the wrap bracelets from Boho Betty – some of which will be at 50% off. Also, grab 20-25% off popular bar bracelets from MFY London.
“Being a part of Glamorous Giving gives us a chance to offer great designs at a great value while supporting an excellent cause,” says Yolanda Ribeiro, owner of Butterly Home who is participating for the second time.
Budding home decorators will be thrilled to find a mix of distinctive designs in duvets, towels, lounge ware, crockery, cushions & decorations by Butterfly Home’s leading lifestyle brand, Pip Studio.

Participating in Glamorous Giving has always been a pleasure and honour for Lali Masso, the co-founder and co-owner of Little Friends by Lamasso. “With Stones That Rock’s involvement and the support of the Singapore Committee for UN Women, it’s a big event. I think it’s a lovely project and I am very proud to be able to participate each time.”
Stylish mums be prepared to treat your little ones to some adorable yet elegant – casual to dressy – apparel for boys and girls with designs and fabrics influenced by the art and culture of Asia and Spain.
Regular-priced range of clothes for boys, girls and babies at 10-30% off as well as further discounts for other pieces.
Founder of Bisous La thinks Glamorous Giving is one of the best fairs in Singapore – for both the vendors and shoppers. “For shoppers, they find great products for great discounts. For vendors, it is very well organised, the atmosphere is nice and it’s wonderful that Stones That Rock, the organiser, pass on the profits and create awareness for the Singapore Committee for UN Women.”
Socially conscious shoppers will be delighted to know that all products from Bisous La are handmade by local artisans, registered Fairtrade organisations, and NGOs in Asia.
The Indian Matrousjka Dolls made by a Fairtrade company in India (pictured below) are going at 20% off the normal price. Also be sure to check out the popular Rice Baskets created by Bisous La.
Though Indii Breeze has participated at Glamorous Giving before, they are just as excited as the first time. “Being at this event is a fantastic way to offer heavily discounted stock all while supporting a great organisation like the Singapore Committee for UN women,” says owner and designer, Samantha Windebank.
