Clothing Swap with Purpose

May 1 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$25

susWe are proud to bring you our first “Clothing Swap with Purpose” that’s not just an opportunity for you

to update your wardrobe in a sustainable manner but also an opportunity to learn how to make smarter

and more sustainable choices that benefit not only your wardrobe but also Mother Earth. Our team has

purposefully designed the event so you go home with a better understanding of not only what to look

for when buying garments but also a better understanding of how to buy for your body shape and

coloring to really build a sustainable wardrobe that is not only sustainable but also flattering.

 

What to expect

  • 2 Keynote speakers
    • Fast Fashion & Textile Waste ~ Jodie & Jewelz | A Fitting Connection
    • Colour and Styling expert – Alison de Boer | Science of Style
  • Styling Competition including a mini fashion parade
  • Auction of styled outfits
  • Easy to identify a system to help choose the most sustainable pieces.
  • Leftover garments sorted in 3 categories
    • Non-wearable – sent to Textile Recyclers Australia or Upparel
    • Wearable – Charity donation
    • More sustainable items kept for the next Clothing Swap with Purpose
If that wasn’t enough any profits from the event will go towards funding local schools to take part in
Fundraising with Purpose. Another great program to help redivert textiles from landfill and educate

our community about purposeful ownership.
