Event description
Join us to celebrate the launch of TOAST Circle with designer, artist and PhD researcher, Katelyn Toth-Fejel.

About this Event

To promote the idea that clothes can have a life beyond their first wearer we have created the TOAST Circle project. On the evening, there will be a talk and Q&A followed by cocktails and a chance to swap your garments.

Katelyn Toth-Fejel is a designer, artist and PhD researcher at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, University of the Arts London. Her work investigates the social practices of fashion and textiles including everyday actions of swapping, repair and sharing of clothes. She has been featured in numerous UK publications including Lost in London; Adventures in the City’s Wild Outdoors and Adrift.

We hope that you will bring your old TOAST garment into our Edinburgh shop, share the story of that garment, and be inspired to find other worn pieces to cherish and take home.

How will it work?

1. Bring up to five garments you deem as high quality to swap.

2. Complete a story label detailing how and where you wore your garment.

3. Receive a token in exchange for each of your garments. The token will denote the original value of your garment (under £199 / over £200).

4. Explore the curated rails of pre-worn garments and trade your token to find new garments of the same value.

What can you swap?

You can swap pre-worn garments that are still in good condition.

Garments should be washed and ironed.

We will not be able to accept any clothes that are damaged.

There is a maximum of five garments per person.

Terms and conditions apply.
