About this Event

This is a free community event hosted by Fashion Revolution YYC in honour of Fashion Revolution Week YYC (23rd - 27th of April). Slots are limited, so make sure you RSVP! Monetary donations are welcome and appreciated. 

Doors open at 6 p.m. 

The Fashion Revolution YYC Clothing Swap is an event which familiarizes folks with another way of reusing garments and accessories – swapping clothes with friends and strangers. Attendees will have the opportunity to swap clothes with one another, socialize, and listen to local business owners on their experiences with sustainable and ethical fashion. Read more about clothing swaps on our blog.  

Clothing Swap Guidelines:

  • Please bring up to 15 previously worn and loved items with you. This includes shoes, accessories, and notions such as buttons. 

  • Please ensure your clothes are in good condition (No rips, tears, no missing buttons, and no stains please) and freshly laundered (don’t forget to hang dry!). 

  • Your items will be counted by a volunteer. Once you have mingled and browsed to find your new-to-you items, you can swap your new items at a 1:1 ratio. Any garments remaining will be donated to WINS. 

Speakers:

  • Helen Youn

  • Velour Clothing Exchange
