First Look: Housing Works Fall Preview


Here's one thing fashion hounds and thrift-store junkies can agree on: Housing Works preview sales are off-the-hook. The semi-annual events are basically a big excuse for each of the do-gooder chain's ten locations to restock their fashion, furniture, and art offerings — all of which are then sold at a fraction of their retail price, with proceeds benefiting homeless folks living with HIV and AIDS. The fall festivities kick off September 8 at HW's Chelsea location and continue through September 30, but we scored a sneak peek at some of the designer stuff that'll be up for grabs.
