Join us, get involved in Global Sharing Week! Our speakers will give practical examples of sharing clothes, skills and knowledge as the best alternatives to fast consumption.
2.00 pm Drop-Off & Drinks - Drop-off your old clothing and enjoy drinks and networking at the bar
2.30 pm Talk: How Sharing Can Change the World The Circular and Sharing Economy concepts will be discussed from a user perspective. After our first event kicking-off Fashion Revolution, we will now deepen the concepts of how you can close the loop with your clothing and change the world through your wardrobe. This afternoon will allow both the uninitiated and converted to expand their knowledge about new ways of implementing positive actions, to appreciate and participate in #fashionactivism, while looking after the planet and its people!

3.15 pm – 5.00 pm Summer Clothes Swap & Upcycle your wardrobe A hands-on and fun way to explore how to share, re-use, re-design and upcycle your existing clothing. Reinvigorate your wardrobe by exchanging or repurposing your old clothing. Hosted by Revival Collective & Slow Re Purpose. Sara from Slow Re Purpose invites you to take an active part in your new wardrobe by selecting pieces you want to upcycle, valuing your past choices in terms of colour, cloth or fabric. By repurposing, you and Sara and the on-hand seamstresses will work closely together to deliver a new unique piece: you already have all you need! Skilled tutors and seamstresses will be on hand to make alterations on the spot. This will be donation based, so please bring some cash and get ready for a refreshed wardrobe!
Instructions for Clothes Swap:
Please bring up to 5 items of clothing or accessories (clean and in good condition) at 2 pm: You will be given 5 tokens in exchange. Tokens are your Swapping currency, everyone who brings an item is given a token.
Bring one piece of old swimwear or wetsuit for upcycling for RubyMoon- in exchange you will receive a voucher code for 5% off new Eco&Ethical swimwear.
One piece of clothing that you love but might need some updating or converted into a timeless and exclusive piece.
Use your 5 tokens to select from the clothing on display, and go home ready for summer!
Tickets are non-refundable. All revenue from ticket sales will go to covering event costs.
Smarter Uniforms is a community organisation that fundraises for schools, saves parents money and protects our planet's precious resources for our children's future through the resale of second-hand uniform. In addition to bringing your clothes for swapping, if your children have any outgrown school uniform, please bring it along to donate it. During the event you will be able to purchase more uniform, at a third of the original cost of new from a selection of good quality school uniforms which Smarter Uniforms have cleaned and smartened up. The money from sales is put into a fund for local schools after running costs are deducted, so you will be fundraising for schools as well as protecting the planet.
