A good excuse for a party, and also an opportunity to snatch up your stylish friends’ unwanted clothes. Set up a Facebook event, pour some wine, invite some friends over and finish the evening with a new wardrobe. And you do not need to spend a penny. Oxfam and Greenpeace also run their own clothes swap events, where you can meet new people and even do some screen-printing while you’re there. Swishing is another good resource for finding swapping events, and even advice on setting up your own.
You can be super modern about it and take some ethical fashion advice from the Swedish. Sharewear is an Instagram based incentive which allows you to post pictures of your unwanted clothes with the hashtag #sharewear to donate and share your clothes online.
