EVENT | Vintage for Japan, 'A Matter Of Heart'


Eventhough the 9.0-magnitude earthquake in Japan isn’t the hottest item on the news anymore, there are still approximately 12 000 people missing, 500 000 left without a home and millions threatened by a radioactive leak. KinMei Wong, a student at AMFI (Amsterdam Fashion Institute) decided to take action to help out the people in Japan.

KinMei feels a strong connection with Japan after having visited Tokyo. She came up with the idea of collecting money to donate to The Japanese Red Cross by selling vintage. De ambiguously named event ‘A matter of heart’ will be a place where you can express your love for fashion and vintage while at the same time helping those in need. You can also help out by donating your old clothes and accessories so that KinMei and friends can sell them.

A Matter of Heart
April 3
Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam

See you there!

This event might take place here in The Netherlands and most of the Love-Aesthetics readers won’t be able to attend, still I hope this great initiative will inspire others around the world to take action.
