FASH­ION­ISTAS with a pas­sion for la­bels and vintage clothes can get their hands on some de­signer bar­gains at a unique fundraiser this week­end.

Spring Fling will trans­form the iconic Dan­cenorth build­ing into a trendy depart­ment store, with plenty of bar­gains on of­fer in­clud­ing in­ter­na­tional cou­ture items and Aus­tralian la­bels such as sass & bide, Wil­low and Zim­mer­mann.

First held in 2012, Spring Fling is the brain­child of Dan­cenorth’s fundrais­ing com­mit­tee.

The public is in­vited to con­sign their clothes with a por­tion of the sales to go to­wards Dan­cenorth’s com­mu­nity ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram.

“Many lo­cal women have beau­ti­ful de­signer items that they have only worn once, so we saw an op­por­tu­nity to help them clear some space in their wardrobe and to con­trib­ute to Dan­cenorth’s great work in the com­mu­nity sec­tor in the process,” Dan­cenorth oper­a­tions man­ager Karin Palmer said.

“We have a fab­u­lous range of amaz­ing la­bels and have been over­whelmed by the gen­eros­ity of some of our city’s best­dressed ladies.”

This event will be held to­mor­row from 10am to 7pm, and Satur­day and Sun­day from 10am to 4pm at the cor­ner of Stan­ley and Walker streets.

SAVVY SHOP­PING: Dan­cenorth per­form­ers Jenni Large and Ash­leyy McLel­lan are ex­cited about the three­day Spring Fling fash­ion sale to be held at the dance com­pany’s home from to­mor­row.
