It’s April, which means a couple of things in Canberra. Autumn is settling in, trans-seasonal pieces are working their way into wardrobe rotations and we are waiting for Anzac Day to roll around so that we can turn our heaters on. As thrilling as all that is, April is also the birthday month of one of our local faves, fashion boutique Rebel Muse.
After two years of killer parties (who could forget the boutique’s first birthday party at eightysix or their second, at Lazy Su) Rebel Muse is once again getting ready to celebrate. To mark the entry into their third year of business, throughout the month of April (which also coincides with owner Alicia Xyrakis’ 30th birthday) the muses will be throwing an event each and very week.
To get the ball rolling is ‘Rebel Muse Sends Hope’, a charity shopping night taking place on Thursday 5 April, from 6pm-9pm at the boutique in Braddon. As well as shopping, live music, drinks and a delicious grazing table, customers will have a chance to support women in need with five dollars from every sale on the night going to Send Hope Not Flowers, a charity committed to helping mothers in developing countries survive childbirth.
Co-founder of the charity Emma Macdonald will speak on the night about their work, which through its website, for the same cost as a bunch of flowers, you can send a card and help save the life of another mother. 100% of the proceeds of a raffle taking place on the night will also go to Send Hope Not Flowers. Local businesses including Timber & Tailor, Assemblage Project, Frugii, Barrio, Saloon, Bitten Good Foods, Ainslie IGA, and Ainslie Cellars have all kindly donated wonderful prizes to the raffle.
For those shopping online, don’t worry, you won’t miss out on your opportunity to give back, Rebel Muse will donate one dollar from every online sale to Send Hope Not Flowers with the help of digital platform I=Change. Every sale made throughout the month of April will also go into the draw to win a $500 Rebel Muse gift voucher.
