Sought-after samples and stock from luxury clothing and accessories brands will be available as well and the very best of the vintage clothing donated by the public to Oxfam, handpicked from its 700 UK shops and boutiques.

Global ambassador for Oxfam Scarlett Johansson says of her involvement with the charity: “In India and Sri Lanka, I’ve visited projects that are helping poor people find their own solutions to poverty. So, I’m delighted to be able to donate this beautiful Dolce and Gabbana dress that I wore to the opening night of my Broadway play, A View From The Bridge.”

All the money raised at Selfridges during this event in April will go to fund Oxfam’s women’s projects across the world from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to Democratic Republic of Congo, West Africa and South Africa. These projects protect, support and empower vulnerable women: campaigning against violence, empowering them to fight HIV and AIDS and offering the poorest girls the chance of education.
