It's our favourite time of year!
This year will be the eighth annual National Swap Day and to commemorate the day, The Clothing Exchange will host simultaneous clothing swaps in Melbourne, Sydney and Hobart on Wednesday 10th October.
National Swap Day is the biggest swap on our calendar and it is a great time to share the joys of swapping.
Check in starts at 6:30pm to 7:00pm, swapping starts at 7:35pm. We are delighted to announce we have secured Jenna Flood, aka the Ironic Minimalist as our guest speaker and stylist extraordinaire. The Ironic Minimalist focuses on slow fashion styling using preloved garments, vintage and ethically made brands. She believes that fashion shouldn't cause harm to the environment and avoids fast fashion by sourcing most of her wardrobe from op shops.
Jenna will be sharing her top styling tips for your preloved wardrobes and offering a unique styling session for savvy swappers. This is one event not to be missed!
We will also have some very exciting door prizes up for grabs!
