About Fashion Cornucopia

The Women’s Clothes Closet Advisory Board created Fashion Cornucopia with the goal of bringing women (and men) together to raise funds to help meet on-going expenses and to increase exposure and donations for the the Women's Clothes Closet. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event has been modified to include a live stream with Jennifer Livingston and Lisa Klein, a virtual gallery of fall and winter fashions & accessories featuring area businesses, a gourmet "farm to table" carryout meal, and an online silent auction.

The proceeds of this virtual style show benefit the Women’s Clothes Closet, a local non-profit agency, whose mission is to provide free, gently used clothing to women who are entering the workforce, in the workforce, or otherwise in need.

The mission of the Women’s Clothes Closet is to provide gently used clothing to women who are entering the workforce, in the workforce, or otherwise in need.

Started in 1997, the Women’s Clothes Closet was created as a project by a student social worker at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse.

In 2019, the Women’s Clothes Closet had 1,622 clients and received 968 donations that included clothing, shoes, new undergarments, jewelry, accessories, coats, make-up, and personal care items.

New visitors to the Women’s Clothes Closet can choose three complete outfits.  Returning visitors can select one outfit per visit, up to two times per month.  No questions are asked about income or employment status.


The Women’s Clothes Closet is usually in need of gently used in-season clothing that is fashionable, clean, and in good repair.

Due to COVID-19, we are only able to serve a limited number of women, and being blessed with an abundance of clothing are only able to accept donations of winter outer-wear—coats & jackets (especially ski coats), snow boots, hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, etc. at this time.  Bras (new), shoes, boots, handbags, scarves, and jewelry are also very much appreciated.  Donations can be made by appointment on Wednesdays 9am – 1pm and Saturdays 1pm – 3pm.  Please call 608.784.5745 to schedule your donation appointment (please leave a message and someone will call you back to schedule).  Thank you!

Financial contributions help us pay the wages of our Clothes Closet Coordinator.  Checks should be made out to the Women’s Clothes Closet and sent to Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 612 Division Street, La Crosse, WI 54601.  Thank you!
