Event description
LOANHOOD Clothes Swap supported by Kensington & Chelsea Council

About this event

LOANHOOD hosts a Clothes Swap supported by Kensington & Chelsea Council.

LOANHOOD will create a ‘shop’ experience, with swap-shop assistants to help you restyle and exchange items, extend the life of unworn garments and reduce the amount of clothes headed to landfill.

We offer a token system for customers who bring no more than 5 items. Items will be categorised into relevant tiers (1, 2, 3) based on the type, brand and condition. This will dictate how many tokens the customer can then use to shop for new items. All items will be assessed using LOANHOOD ‘Swap-Shop Item Guide’.

The Seam will be on hand for clothes repairs and customisations all day. The Seam helps to make sustainable living easy and exciting. It's like Uber but for people who sew!

HOW IT WORKS

Please bring no more than 5 items of clothing, accessories and/or footwear freshly cleaned * and ready to go on the racks. We accept all shapes and sizes including children's clothing. We have two drop times morning or afternoon.

MORNING SWAP

Drop-Off - 11:00- 11:45

Bring up to 5 items to trade for tokens. Items will be assessed by the Swap Shop Assistants on arrival and displayed in Token Boutiques.

Once you give us your clothes we will categorise them and give you tokens in return.

There is a grouping system of clothes based on Recommended Retail Price (RRP) and condition. This will dictate how many tokens you receive and can then swap on the stalls.

You will be allocated 30 minute swap slots on a first come, first served basis to create a more relaxed experience.

Swap Shop - 12:00 - 13:30

Browse the rails and use your token currency to exchange for new preloved items.

LOANHOOD is the fashion rental app made for people who want to wear new stuff without buying new. Done with waiting for a sustainable change to happen, its three female co-founders came together to make it happen. On the app, Loaners can borrow other people’s clothes or rent out their own to make some money. It’s reinventing the way fashion works (for the better). 

It’s not just clothes LOANHOOD like to share. We’ve got a lot of knowledge about the fashion industry and sustainability. We want to get everyone hyped up on slowing down fast fashion with events like clothes swaps, educational workshops, supper clubs, and festival clean-ups.
