Love What You Wear - Fashion Workshop and Clothes Swap

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Do you have gorgeous clothing items that stay in the cupboard because they just don’t suit your shape, and you feel they are too good to give away? We have the perfect solution! Come along to the Library and hear stylist Jane Fleming speak about fashion for all body types - what colours and shapes suit different figures and tips on where and what to buy for all seasons and budgets. We will also look at how to alter clothes for a better fit and how to upcycle garments.

After the presentation, have the chance to swap your own items for something you'll love to wear!

TICKETS WILL OPEN FOR BOOKING ON WEDNESDAY 18 JANUARY.

HOW THE SWAP WORKS

1. Please bring STRICTLY ONLY 1 – 7 items of clothing or accessories to add to the swap collection pool. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept more than 7.

2. Please note that guests can only begin taking and trying on swap items after the swap is officially declared open by the host. This will take place after the Fashion Stylist presentation.  After this, guests can try on and take what they like.

3. At the end of the swap, participants can choose to take home remaining items they brought that have not been taken or they can leave them at the swap to be donated to charity.

SWAP GUIDELINES

  • Clothes brought to the swap MUST be clean, good quality and in good condition: not too heavily worn out, faded, or pilled. (Good quality also means something you would gift to your best friend). Please be mindful and considerate of what other swappers will be happy to receive 😊.
  • Clothes can be handmade, retro, vintage, branded, etc.

  • We can’t guarantee guests will find their sizes. It depends on what other guests bring, therefore, we encourage ALL SIZES to participate in the swap.

  • Items to bring: dresses, pants, skirts, tops, shoes, bags, scarves, hats, jewellery.

WHAT NOT TO BRING: please do not bring underwear, pyjamas and overused workout gear. Pyjamas and swimwear allowed only if they're brand new, preferably with tags.
