Event description

Description

Our relationship with clothes is broken - unwanted clothes are piling up in landfill. We're hurting ourselves and we're hurting the environment. As part of the National Sustainable Living Festival 2019, this clothes swap event is an opportunity to reflect on how we can be better at fashion, how we can create a more mindful relationship with the clothes we wear, and how we can break the fast fashion addiction cycle.

How it works?

Search your wardrobe for high quality garments that no longer work for you. Choose up to six items and bring them to the clothes swap. When you check-in, you will receive a token to swap for new-to-you items. If you have left-over tokens after you choose a few new favourites, you're welcome to offer them to someone else. In fact, please offer them to someone else.

What to bring?

We want everyone to have a good experience and to leave with clothes they would pay good money for. This is a no-fast-fashion zone. Please ensure you only bring clothes that are worthy of love for a long time to come. Not sure what that means? Read on.

First of all, make sure the items you bring are clean and have been gently worn, and are stain and smell free. Go towards natural fibres, contemporary or vintage, good quality clothes. Bags and shoes are welcome too.

Please bring brands like these:

  • Obus
  • Nancybird
  • Nique
  • Uniqlo
  • Muji
  • Bul
  • Gorman
  • Kloke
  • Alpha60
  • Kuwaii
  • Neuw
  • Rollas
  • Camper
  • Veja
  • Adidas

Please don't bring low quality brands like:

  • H&M
  • Target
  • Kmart
  • Supre
  • Valley Girl
  • Dotti
  • Susan
  • Portmans

What about style or size?

Whether vintage or contemporary, bring clothes that other people would want to wear now, and are not three years' ago's fashion fad. Don't too much about sizes. Everyone finds something in the end. So leave your worries aside and just join us, no matter your size and style.

Running order:

6pm - 6.30pm - check in your clothes, browse and meet some swappers

6.30pm - 7.30pm - shop the swap; start trying, find things for your friend to try, have fun

6.45pm - Mindful introduction to clothes swapping

7pm - Swap begins

8pm - Home time. Thank you for playing. Come again.

Note that this is a women only event. Everyone who identifies as a woman is welcome.
