I am so excited to be heading to The Clothing Exchange event tomorrow night! I was lucky enough to snap up some tickets at the last minute and cannot wait to go and swap some of the garments I no longer plan on wearing as a result of my recent wardrobe detox.
If you have taken it upon yourself to also clear out your closet, you might find this event quite enticing.
As part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program, The Clothing Exchange is hosting a wardrobe workshop and swap event at Fed Square this Wednesday evening.
The concept is simple, you can bring up to 6 garments or fashion accessories that you no longer wear, and these are exchanged for buttons which in turn becomes the “currency” you can use to purchase items brought in by other participants.
Special guests will include fashion blogger Cheryl Lin (Business Chic), consultant and campaigner Fabia Pryor, slow fashion retailer Mats Ekström (Swensk) and Violette Snow and Sigrid McCarthy (HESSIAN magazine).
So if you’re in need of some new attire, and want to be part of a great sustainable fashion event, make sure you snap up some tickets HERE. Who knows you might end up finding the perfect items from the dream wardrobe checklist…. I know I’ll be aiming to find some new buddies for my closet!
Where : Deakin Edge Federation Square / When : Wednesday 11 March, from 6.00pm / Ticket Price : $20.00 entry. Swap up to 6 items / Buy tickets ONLINE HERE to save your spot, tickets at the door according to availability
