Fashion: It's beautiful, it's fun, it brings us joy; yet, it is also one of the most polluting industries in the world. From production to disposal, fashion is messy and not designed to be reused. Rather, when its done being used it ultimately ends up in landfill or incineration. Our consumption adds up: In Australia alone, we throw out 6 tonnes or 6,000 kgs of clothing textiles every 10 minutes.

No thanks to that we say! This clothing swap is a way for you to consciously dispose of the loved pieces you no longer wear, or are a bit bored with, and swap with new friends. It is just like shopping a friend's closet—but now we are looping in 100 new friends! The swap is simple, no money changes hands and everyone is invited; however, venue space is limited so there are only a set number of spots available.

Details:
Guests can bring up to 10 items. All styles are welcome - modern, vintage, clothing, shoes*, and handbags. The only major rule is that they must be in good condition as swapping works best when the quality is high—so think Zara and Country Road over KMart and Target (e.g., minimum original RRP of $30).

To ensure a high-quality swap for all guests, we have created the following guidelines:
- Items must be in a good condition, free of major faults. The occasional minor fault like a missing button is ok, but no broken zips, ripped seams.
- Items must be clean and pressed—e.g, ready to be hung up and shopped by your friends.
- Items should be of good quality with lots of life still left in them
- You should be emotionally detached from them as, at the end, any clothing left over will be donated to the Red Cross.

Please try to be balanced with goods—e.g., don't just bring 10 pairs of shoes you no longer wear.
Basically, we ask that anything you bring be of the conditions and quality that you would be happy to receive it or give it to your bestie. For each item, you will receive one swapping token, and when you are ready to "check out," please take your items and tokens to one of our staff and they will sign you out.

Please note: We do not accept anything pilled, smelly, marked, or too far from perfect. We do not exchange undergarments, swimwear, or tracksuits. (High-quality activewear like Lululemon, Lorna Jane, is acceptable provided it meets condition requirements).

Check-in & Drop-off: 11:30am–12:30pm
Swap Shop: 12:45–3:30pm
Please come down between 11:30–12:30 to register and drop off your clothing. Our volunteers will then set up the shop to open at 12:45(ish).

Lastly, please keep an open mind! With any swap, the excitement can run high with the rush of almost free garments. Please be patient as the real gems often end up back on the rack after the initial pass around.

We are a diverse community, so expect to see a wide array of shapes and styles. As always with a swap, sometimes you may find an equal amount of items to love, and other times you may find one (or none) - its all part of the fun! And, at the end of the day, you can watch your fashion find a happy new home and know that its not going to waste.

Sorry, there are no refunds for this event, but you can transfer/sell your ticket to a friend.
