‘Nearly New Sale’ opens doors for club


On Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Delta College’s Fashion Program will be offering bargains on brand name items at an event called the “Nearly New Sale.”

The items available will be new and nearly new clothes for men, women and children of all sizes.

Thanks to a generous donation, almost 500 brand new dresses will be available.

A variety of dresses will be on display for any occasion such as weddings, prom, quinceañeras and formal attire.

“All are brand new and donated by a formal dress design company in the Bay Area,” said Leslie Asfour, director of the fashion and interior design programs.

There was also donations of men’s clothing, including brands such as as Hugo Boss, True Religion, DKNY and Ted Baker.

The department will additionally be selling accessories, home goods, books and videos.

Items will sell as low as $1.

Although Asfour isn’t making early predictions for success or failure, the event has grown with the community.

“The sales have become very popular among our numerous returning customers who look forward to them,” said Asfour.

Proceeds from the event allow the Fashion Club to participate in fashion-related events and field trips.

“The funds we raise from our events go towards a number of purposes. When the club hosts it, the money raised go to helping the members get to NY for our annual fashion tour,” said Asfour. “When the program hosts it, the funds go towards field trips and to our events.”
