Event description

Description

Clothes Swap & Style - Canberra is partnering with Australian Dance Party to bring you two amazing events sponsored by The Village Festival. The Clothes Swap & Styling Workshops will be at 5:30pm on October 20th and 21st at the Floriade Fringe presented by The Village. These are FREE events.


Floriade Fringe is promoting sustainable fashion through the collaboration of our Clothes Swap with the dance act, Seamless performed by Australian Dance Party. Seamless draws attention to the scale and momentum of the problem of fast fashion, exploring ways that fashion can be environmentally sustainable. The catwalk becomes a lens to explore human psychology, behaviour and societal systems that drive the fad of fast fashion. Seamless is at 8pm each night of the festival and follows shortly after each clothes swap. Both events are free.


The event will begin with the brief styling workshop featuring capsule wardrobe styling ideas from Eco Stylist, Nina Gbor. Please note that the clothes swapping activity will start right after the styling workshop is completed. Once the swap is open, you'll have the fun opportunity to zhuzh up your Spring- Summer wardrobe with some fabulous finds. We love hosting these swaps and workshops to show you how to look stylish in the most sustainable ways. In Australia, 60,000kg of fashion and textile waste end up in a landfill every hour! Swapping reduces the waste problem and keeps you looking fabulous at the same time. ALL dress sizes are welcome.


HOW THE SWAP WORKS

1. Bring 1 – 15 items of clothing or accessories to add to the swap collection pool.

2. Please note that the clothes swapping will commence only after the mini-styling workshop at the beginning. During the swap, guests can try on any garments and accessories and then take home as much as they like.

3. At the end of the swap, participants can choose to take home remaining items they brought that have not been taken or they can leave them at the swap to be donated to charity.
