Clothing Auction Network
Clothing Auction Network is a group of Beijing-based women advocating for sustainable fashion. The community holds regular events to swop clothes, refresh wardrobes, and spread the message of ethical fashion. High quality clothing is auctioned off to the highest bidder — and all the money raised goes to charity!

- Become a WeChat group digital volunteer
- Organize your own clothing auction event
- …and more!

Beijing-based Clothing Auction Network started back in 2014 as a small group of expat women with a knack for fashion — and an idea to support sustainability in their community. Fast forward to today, the community has grown to over 500 members raising over 120,000 RMB for charity each year.
Plus, hundreds of new friendships made and thousands of secondhand clothing items circulated.
The community usually meets in the homes of one of its members, creating a genuinely intimate environment to form relationships, celebrate community, promote sustainable fashion sense, and support local charities. And don’t forget the amazing garments you’ll take home after an auction!
The Clothing Auction Network network is all about feeling connected, changing consumer habits, and giving back to community. A fashion-foward community of women changing the fashion world for good. #sustainablefashion
