Thanks to GFX, an international platform promoting sustainability in the fashion industry, and Fashion Revolution, a not-for-profit global movement, you can update your wardrobe this weekend, and not spend much money, and also save the earth. How? Simple! It’s a clothes swap event where you can simply show up with clothes (in mint condition) which you either don’t wear much anymore, or haven’t at all, and swap them for something that someone else has brought. It is a great way to pick up stuff that you may not have otherwise bought, and an even better way to get rid of all those unworn clothes in your own cupboard!
You can bring anything from one to 10 pieces of clothes (of course, no lingerie, socks or underwear, y’all!), and you’ll get a coupon for each of those clothes. Then when the swapping begins, you can go haring around the space to pick what you want. Once you’ve picked your favourites, you can exchange your coupons for them. If there are expensive outfits, the team will tell you there that you need to give up two or more coupons for the merchandise you have chosen. But if the prices of the garments you gave in, and are checking out, are similar then it’s one coupon for one piece of clothing. Got it? Great!
