A pop-up fashion thrift shop tonight at Rockwood Music Hall to aid the Bowery Mission

The next L.E.S. amis — described as New York's non-profit fashion thrift store — takes place tonight at the Rockwood Music Hall from 5-9.

Via the EVG inbox: "There will be vintage and new designer women's and men's clothing, and all proceeds go to The Bowery Mission."

Here's some background from the LES amis website:

LES amis was founded by fashion designer Jemima Janney. Born from a recognition of the huge amount of wastage in the fashion industry and a desire to help the many homeless of NYC.

L.E.S. amis collects NYC's best designer clothing from those willing to donate. All clothing sold at our pop up stores is high quality, designer, high fashion and affordable. (We're always up for a barter).

The thrift store coincides with NYC Communion Residency shows, a monthly, multi-genre showcase of local and national musicians. (You can gain access to the show with any purchase from the thrift shop.)

Rockwood Music Hall is at 196 Allen St. between Houston and Stanton.
