Changing the world, one dress at a time. . .
In February 2017, Social Enterprise The Heart Bazaar was founded by three sisters. A shop with a mission. A mission to change the world, one dress at a time. Not all heroes (and heroines) wear capes, at The Heart Bazaar, we change the world wearing trendy outfits. Because we can. We have a vision to make the world a better place effortlessly – simply by shopping. The Heart Bazaar sells curated like-new or brand new donated clothing with 100% profits going to charities and social causes. By simply shopping, you are making an active donation to a charitable organization.
HOW YOUR PURCHASE = DONATION TO A CHARITY
With every purchase, 100% of profits* go to charities and social causes. (*up to 80% of the retail price) Not just that, by buying like-new or off-season brand new apparels, you are saving precious raw materials that goes into making new clothes as well as giving perfectly trendy clothes second chances.

IN GOOD COMPANY
We are glad to be in the good company of and recognises by the following leaders in Doing good.
Singapore Kindness Movement Kindness Ambassador since 2017
Part of the Company of Good
The Company of Good programme was launched on 2 June 2016. It was developed by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), in partnership with the Singapore Business Federation Foundation (SBFF), supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community & Youth (MCCY), and in support of Singapore Cares (SG Cares).
We empower businesses operating in Singapore to give in strategic, sustainable and impactful ways. Increasingly, consumers are seeking ethical products and services, and people want to work for companies that care about the communities they operate in.
Creating a strong business and building a better world are not conflicting goals. Rather, they are both essential ingredients for long-term success. At Company of Good, we help companies to do good well, and to benefit both their business and the community while doing so.
THE IMPACT OF FAST FASHION
The fashion industry is the 2nd highest polluter in the world, and fast fashion is one of the industry that abuses human rights. We may not be able to make a huge difference but we can play a small part in saving clothes from languishing in landfills. We believe individual efforts will add up to make a statement on change and saving our planet.
The Heart Bazaar hopes for our customers to pledge for just one fifth of their wardrobe to be sustainable fashion (up-cycling, buying from ethnic brands as well as thrifted apparels) Being fully sustainable is not simple, but making 1/5 your goal will definitely be attainable. Start your journey with The Heart Bazaar and together we are fashion with heart.
