Event description

Description

The event is for anyone, men or women, who have said "I have nothing to wear" while their closets are bursting with clothes. That dress you purchased for a special occasion, but then found another you liked better and didn't return the first one, the top that looked great in Greece with a tan, but is now buried at the back of a drawer or the suit that looked suitable but now you're over it. We all have clothes that we've fallen out of love with, but one person's 'never wear again', is another's 'great for a night out'. So bring along those items, and swap them for 'new' additions to your wardrobe.

For more information on how clothes swapping, or swishing, actually works go to www.getswishing.com. However, basic rules are to bring one item minimum and ten items maximum, all in good quality with no stains, rips or bits missing or broken. We accept all garments (except swimwear or underwear), shoes, bags and jewelry (except earrings). Tokens are then exchanged for the clothes, six tokens for designer (Dior, Gucci, Burberry ect), three tokens for high end high street and true vintage (Whistles, Jigsaw, Hobbs ect) and one token for high street/supermarket (George at Asda, Select, Primark ect).

All the clothes and accessories are then laid out and attendees are welcome to ‘spend’ their tokens as they wish. We use the token system in order to ensure everyone feels there is a fair exchange taking place. At the end of the event, any unwanted garments will be given to local charity shops.

Please arrive between 6pm and 6.30pm to drop your items off and collect tokens. The actual swish will then take place at 7pm.

This is a community, not-for-profit event and an opportunity not just to gain new clothes, but also to make new friends while helping the planet. For further information go to the Instagram account @TheInspiringWild
