Sample Sale of the Week: Fashion Girls for Japan

Longtime Cheryl Shops readers know how I feel about sample sales where you have to pay to get in. (Hint: I don't even list them.) However, I make an exception when the admission fee goes to charity, which is why Fashion Girls for Japan is this week's featured sale. Organized by a handful of fashion insiders with strong ties to Japan, the sale features more than 60 designers--from heavy hitters like Helmut Lang and Alexander Wang to indie darlings like Suno and Obesity and Speed, not to mention top names like Thakoon and Altuzarra--and 100% of the proceeds benefit Japan disaster relief efforts. Admission is just $5, and you can even buy a ticket in advance (or at the door). There will be DJs (these are Fashion Girls, after all); no word on the discounts, but the designer list is enticing enough. 4/2-4/3; 11-7 Sat., 11-5 Sun.; Bowery Terrace at Bowery Hotel, 355 Bowery (at 3rd St.).
