“Le Vide-Dressing Du Bazar” is an event organized by the shop BHV in Paris in association with a magazine and a private sales website. BHV first invited people in the shop to present clothes and accessories they want to sell and encouraged them tell a story about the products. The brand then invited everybody to come and buy the clothes. Two fashion designers were present during the event to give free advice to shoppers.
