About this Event

The Clothing Exchange invite you to attend our Swap Party at VAMFF’s Plaza Block Party on Saturday 14th March 2020! Bring up to 6 fabulous items that you would be happy to give to a friend and be ready to find a treasure trove of new items for your wardrobe!Here’s a crazy fact...it takes 2720 litres of water to produce 1 cotton t-shirt. That’s how much you will drink over 3 years! Making clothing takes a huge amount of resources and sadly so much of our clothing ends up unloved in our wardrobes and never worn. We at The Clothing Exchange want to challenge you to rethink how you buy, wear and repurpose your garments.

Our swap party offers a fun solution to repurposing and refreshing your wardrobe. You won’t attend another swap like this in 2020! Drop off your items from 12pm – 1pm and join in the swapping mayhem from 1pm – 3pm.

We are delighted to be partnering with Fitted for Work for this fabulous swap. Fitted for Work is an innovative organisation and the first of its kind in Australia. Their vision is economic independence and empowerment for women and their mission is to help women experiencing disadvantage get work, keep work and navigate their world of work. They do this through developing each woman’s confidence and self-esteem as well as her skills and knowledge to obtain work through a suite of tailored pre-and post-employment programs and services that are delivered nationally.

Fitted for Work believe that when a woman is fitted for work, she is fitted for life.

All the leftover garments from the swap will be bundled up and donated to Fitted for Work to help them with their important mission. There will be lots happening down at the Plaza to celebrate the final day of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival including a range of workshops, music, pop-up runways, streetstyle photography, live fashion illustration & performance art. This swap is FREE to attend but you must register online so we know how many beloved swappers are coming.
