San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
This is no ordinary shwop-shopping event, ‘Conscious Swap Shopping’ is an initiative created by the behavioural change social enterprise Wakeup Campaign.
Launching for part of London's Design Festival, the events will be an exploration of our consciousness through the way we consume, behave, shop and feel by introspectively debating on identity, habits, behavioural patterns and the psychoanalysis of our shopping rituals.
Not only will you have the opportunity to bring your clothes and swap them for new ones, there will be a Q&A session where influential guest speakers from the sustainable fashion, lifestyle & academic sphere will be discussing their work.
The space will be filled with interesting sections for people to become immersed in fashion for change. There will be a section where people can:
- Get their clothes customised by a professional costume designer
- Engage with visual stimulants for people to interact and engage with
- Raffles to be won
- Ethical fashion/product stalls selling their garments
- And not forgetting the fabulous clothes people acquire when they swap!
Come and be part of the ‘Conscious Swap Shopping’ movement! P.S. Don't forget to bring items of clothing/accessories to swap.
Tickets: £8 online £10 on the door
Confirmed guests so far are: (Many more to come ;-)
- Zahra Mansouri: Costume designer, worked for the likes of Strictly Come Dancing
- Grassroots: An ethical fashion clothing line
- Plastic Seconds: Recycled jewellery brand
- Nicholas ODH, part of the research-led collective, SAINT H
P.S Please note the event will be recorded with the use of photography. By purchasing a ticket, this will mean you have consented to the latter.
When & Where
Wakeup Campaign is a Social Design Emporium.
We’re packed with ideas of how projects and businesses can create sustainable change and we bring those ideas to life for our clients. We design stuff, make stuff, organise stuff, promote stuff, do business plans, media strategies and a whole lot more.
Founded in 2010 by a young creative entrepreneur Viviane Williams, Wakeup Campaign is really all about offering creative solutions to social and environmental challenges. We do this in all sorts of ways. For example, we produce original marketing campaigns, awesome design, innovative adverts, guerrilla marketing, social media strategies, events management among other things. We think our work helps people to ‘wake up’ and see the world through different eyes; it changes perceptions and behaviour in positive ways.
