A clothing swap is an event where garments are traded and exchanged instead of currency. Participants exchange their valued but no longer used clothing for clothing they will use. Clothing swaps are considered not only a good way to revive and refresh one's wardrobe, but also are considered an act of environmentalism. Keeping clothes 'in the loop'.

When: Saturday July 20th: 10.30am - 12pm (must drop clothes off before this time, see below)

How does it work? Please read carefully.

  • Sizing and quality: If you have been to a clothes swap before you will know half of the fun is in the mystery. Our last swaps we had size range from 6 - 16 and all sizes are welcome. Clothes that are of great quality are encouraged but just like any game the outcome can not be predicted. Bring an open mind, good attitude and we are hopeful you will find some gems!
  • Dropping Clothes off: The collective will accept clothes before the event to help Saturday run on time. Friday the 19th from 9am - 5pm. Please email for questions.
  • If you can not make it before hand drop off time is between 9.30am - 10.15am on the day of the swap.
  • Event begins promptly at 10.30am first in best dressed!
  • What to wear to a swap: As there are only 3 dressing rooms available we recommend wearing clothes that allow you to try on easier. For example singlets, tshirts, shorts, bike pants, tights etc. Nothing too bulky so you can throw your clothes over the top if the line is too long! 

Clothing check-list prior to the event - must answer yes to all of the following.

  • Are my clothes cleaned?
  • Are my clothes free from permanent stains?
  • Are my clothes free from holes, tears and/or anything that would make it unfit for resell?
  • Would you want to swap this item for another piece of clothing you would desire?
  • Remember your clothes are your currency, think that one dress you bought for a wedding but never wore? Yes! Tired gym clothes? No!

What happens to clothes left over? What can we do about the problem?

Biome will be sending any left over garments to Restitch to be used in workshops. Restitch Upcycling Studio is a community-based social enterprise that addresses the issue of clothing waste by engaging in conversations and workshops that aim to raise awareness of the environmental impact of clothing and explore potential local solutions.
