Swap don't shop
Well-organised – and with their own set of rules (see swishing.org) – swishing parties are a great excuse for a get-together to which you can bring shoes, jewellery and accessories as well as clothes.

  • How to make a party planning. The Swapping Swishing Party  - Step 1
    Step 1

    Pick a time and please, copy this message and the picture, make a facebook event and send it to your welldressing friends.

    Want free clothes? The Swapping (Swishing for eco-fashionista's) party is the solution!

    The idea is that you can end up with a completely free wardrobe, while disposing of those instantly regretted purchases (which seemed like a good idea at the time) in the most eco-conscious way possible. Well-organised – and with their own set of rules (see swishing.org) – swishing parties are a great excuse for a get-together to which you can bring shoes, jewellery and accessories as well as clothes.

    The simple Rules of the Rail we follow:

    1. Every on arrives at the same time with at least one item of quality clothing or accessory.
    2. Make sure your items are in good condition, clean and preferably on a hanger.
    3. Clothes will be put on display for browsing for a half an hour for everyone to choose from. You can't actually claim any items during this 30 min.
    4. Then as the swap/swish is declared open and everyone may take what they want.
    5. Remember no scratching, biting, or elbowing allowed!
    6. You and your friends go home with a great new look.

    See you soon!

    Sincerely,
    (your name here)
