What is a Fashion Swap Party?
Plenty of people have items in their closets that they're never going to wear anymore for a slew of reasons. Some ladies, don't wear the same dress twice for fear of being photographed in it twice; others have lost or gained weight and cannot fit items; others just fall out of love with some hand bags and leave them sitting on the shelves.
Fashion Swap Parties are the newest phenomenon in eco-friendly fashion, where people raid their closets for threads they no longer want and bring them to the nearest clothing-swap party (instead of the local consignment store). There, fashionistas gather to garner once-loved pieces from both friends and complete strangers. Attendees can swap clothes, accessories, shoes and lots more. With the economy the way it is, Fashion Swap parties are a great way to refresh your wardrobe and a great way to recycle things you don’t want anymore and have a lot of fun doing it.
WHAT TO BRING
Clothing, bags, belts, shoes or other accessories. No more than 10 items per person. The amazing dress you wore to your best friend's wedding that you can't possibly be seen in again! That pair of shoes that you bought too small and have never quite managed to squeeze your tootsies into. The jacket that your mother bought you that isn't quite your style but is WAY too good to be given away. The jeans you bought on sale over one year ago that you promised yourself you would get into before summer.
How does a Fashion Swap Party work?
1.Gather all of your high end clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories that you no longer desire. All items must be clean and in excellent condition. NOTE: It is not required to bring a high-end item. (See # 4 below).
2.Any unaccepted items can be left to be donated to charity.
