The Fashion Project and Nordstrom Team for Stylish Giving

Pay Your Fashion Forward

Pay Your Fashion Forward

The weather’s warming, Matt Lauer has shaved his Sochi beard and the floor of your closet is littered with forgotten goods and winter clothes you never want to see again (nothing’s worse than buying something…practical). Luxe clothing and accessories donation service Fashion Project has teamed with Nordstrom for a program that will reward you for cleaning up your closet. Donate just five gently used items and you’ll get a $40 gift card to Nordstrom in return.

“This partnership with is a fantastic opportunity for our customers because it makes it easy for them to give back to their favorite community organizations and update their wardrobe all at the same time,” Brian Dennehy, Nordstrom’s chief marketing officer, said to WWD. “Supporting our communities has always been important to us at Nordstrom, and we know that it means a lot to our customers as well. We’re excited to partner with and give our customers a new way to lend their support to those organizations that matter most to them by simply cleaning out their closets.”

It really is as easy as it sounds. Head online and fill out a simple form and in no time at all, a pre-paid donation bag will arrive at your doorstep. Now it’s up to you to decide what you’re willing to part with, but the Fashion Project will only give you the Nordstrom gift card if your donations are in good shape — no stains or rips, please — and are from brands on their pre-approved list. Some of the brands are a bit of a stretch (we’re not willing to part with our Bottega Veneta or Alaia just yet) but there are plenty of brands you will have just filling up space in your closet. Brands such as Guess, American Rag, Club Monaco and J. Crew are all part of the program along with Tory Burch and Rachel Comey and even labels such as Fendi, Chanel and Céline. The items also must be have at least a $50 retail price, so no tossing in tanks and camis from Free People and hoping to get your gift card. At the end of the process, 55% of the proceeds from the resold items that you sent in will go to a charity of your choice and you’ll get that $40 gift card to stock your closet with new goods and feel pretty great about yourself. It’s win-win for you and your wardrobe.
