Swish and Pout

Having discovered Swish and Pout on Twitter I have been intrigued by them ever since and am now very excited to be able to tell you about an upcoming even that they’re hosting in South London.

The word recycling these days seems to have been usurped by the word upcycling but whatever we call it it’s a good thing!  Red shoes No knickers was essentially set up due to frustration with today’s buying habits.  Cheap and easy quantity over classic and worthwhile quality seemed to be taking over.  Not being able to see the wood for the trees eg. the gems that you all ready own in your wardrobe seemed to be taking over and a wee helping hand was needed.  

On this CRAZY {I know, it’s crazy, I know!} news page I have tried to info you about eco-friendly {stay with me!  I know it’s ‘hippie’ word} ways of discarding your unwanted wares:

~Reworking~

And now I have another one for you:  Swish and Pout’s exchange afternoon.

On Saturday 31st March @ the Balham Bowling club

This is how the Fashion Exchange works:
12pm – Bring 2-5 items of clothing, footwear or accessories for swappage & receive Fashion Exchange vouchers in return. Items will be graded into 3 categories (Vintage/Designer, High End High Street, Popular High Street) and therefore swaps will be ‘like for like’.

12 – 2pm – Browse the vintage pop up market, sip a frocktail, and treat yourself at our Beauty Parlour to Hair & Make Up, Nail Art by Chelsea Dagger & Styling.

2pm – The Fashion Exchange opens.

2 – 6pm – Swap til you drop, then enjoy Frocktails and the Vintage Market.

£5 on the door. Cash Only.
 
 
Hopefully you’ll end up leaving like this:
 

Head on over to their website here for more information and get rooting through those wardrobes of yours to see what needs to be swapped!  Fun times ahead my Shoelets….Go, fly like the wind and unearth some hidden vetements that others will learn to love as much as you once did…
