Why Clothing Swap with us?
If you're looking for a fun, free, and eco-friendly way to refresh your wardrobe, consider hosting a clothing swap party. When planned properly, a clothing swap not only invites you and your friends to clean out their closets-haven't we all been meaning to?-but everyone gets to go home with a fun new fashion haul.
What is a Clothing Swap?
In its simplest form, a clothing swap is a gathering of people who get together to exchange clothing that they no longer wear for something from someone else’s wardrobe.
Clothing swaps are a form of circular fashion because they allow us to extend the lifespans of clothing that is already in circulation. They are a way of working with what we already have while satisfying our desire for novelty.
Why we should all try to swap before we shop Swapping allows us to understand fashion as something much more than financial exchanges, which makes it a powerful substitute to our current capitalist fashion system. Each season in life comes with different changes. Whether it be size fluctuations or an evolving sense of personal style, swaps allow you to add garments to your wardrobe that suit your current life season, while avoiding having to engage with the endless consumption cycles of the fashion industry. It’s usually very cost affordable too – some swaps are free and others charge a small entry or maintenance fee. This makes swapping a financially inclusive way for people to participate in slow fashion. Plus, if you are swapping more and shopping less, it allows you to save up and invest in a slow fashion brand that you truly believe in.
It is also a way to responsibly rehome clothing that you no longer wear. When we donate clothing, only a small percentage of it gets resold and the rest often becomes a part of the unjust global trade in secondhand clothes – making our waste the burden of those living in countries in the Global South. But when it comes to swaps, the clothing you no longer wear will more often than not find a new home with someone else.
Beyond the clothes, clothing swaps are beautiful spaces for community building, because you get to connect with like-minded people in the slow fashion community.

What to Bring and What NOT To Bring
A good rule of thumb as you gather your swap items:
- Please don't contribute anything you wouldn't give to a close friend.
(Sure, clothing swaps are the perfect chance to clear out your closet, but maybe consider
contributing last year's sundress that shrunk a little over your old college sweats.)
- No tattered tees (unless they're the trendy kind!), missing buttons, broken zippers, or stains.
- All wearable items are up for swapping including apparel, accessories, shoes, bags, and jewelry.
- Please bring CLEAN clothing and hangers are a plus!!!
- Day of entry will be $10 per person which will allow you to take home all the items you desire!!!
- Dressing rooms will be available.
- All proceeds will be spent on facilitating this event!
