Elle Canada calls it “a treasure-hunter’s dream.” She Does the City says its “the best place to score designer vintage in the city.” Shop Vintage called it “one of the best vintage sales in the city.”
Toronto fashion stylists and vintage enthusiasts will flock to the Koffler Couture three-day sale at Artscape Youngplace on December 7-9 to score designer vintage at a steal — all in support of the Koffler Centre for the Arts at Artscape Youngplace.
Returning for its sixth year, the Koffler Centre of the Arts has amassed a crowd of art gallery patrons, donors, board members and more who donate to the fundraiser from their designer wardrobes every year; and they, in turn, invite their social circles to dig into their own deep closets to offer vintage gems in support of the arts and cultural programming at Koffler Centre of the Arts.

The resulting collection offers over 5,000 clothing items and accessories for fashion lovers to swoon over from designers such Marni, Oscar de la Renta, Mui Mui, Isabel Marant, Kenzo, Comme des garçons and more.
On Saturday, December 7 from 6-9pm, get a $75 ticket for the early access shopping party for the best selection, and cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a live DJ. On Sunday, December 8 pay what you can at the door for the first public sale. While on Monday, December 9 from 4-7pm, the remainder of the collection is marked down. Coveted items start as low as $5 and $10 dollars and can be the inspiration for a stylist’s latest look, while the money raised goes to a worthy cause.
All the funds raised supports the Koffler Centre of the Arts, so they can continue to offer socially-engaged programs that bring together artists, students and local communities through collaborative and participatory, multi-disciplinary arts experiences. All remaining clothing and accessories after Monday’s sale will be donated to New Circles Community Services.
