Event description

Description

The Clothing Exchange has partnered with OXFAM Australia to share the ‘What She Makes’ message for a high impact clothing swap on July 5th, 2018.

The collaborative initiative is designed to bring consumer awareness to the working conditions female garment workers experience and allow you the opportunity to sign the pledge for big brands to pay a fairer working wage.

While these household brands are enjoying big revenues, women making our clothes are trapped in a cycle of poverty, paid as little as 39 cents (AU) an hour. As a swapper you will be able to learn how you can support a fairer fashion future and walk away with fashionable new additions to your wardrobe guilt free!

By not paying a living wage, big brands are keeping the women who make our clothes in poverty. But you can show your support for the women of the world by attending this swap and signing the pledge.

We also have a special guest, Nadia Foti our Clothing Exchange Ambassador, upcycled clothing and accessory designer and Fashion Sustainability Teacher at Box Hill Institute.

To make this swap extra memorable, bring up to six items that are locally made, designer, vintage or fabulous, in one way or another. Please research the campaign company tracker here and avoid swapping these low rated brands. And lastly, make sure you are emotionally detached from the items, as anything left over will be collected by the Red Cross.

Reasons to attend:

1) Sign the pledge and support fairer working conditions for female garment workers

2) Refresh your wardrobe with up to 6 new items! – for only $25.00

3) Enjoy a fun and unique way to shop/swap in a stunning venue
