GLC Rethink your Wardrobe – a clothes swap and panel discussion
May 4, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Rethink Your Wardrobe is an afternoon of sustainable fashion fun and thoughtful discussion on the impacts of and alternatives to Australia’s growing addiction to fast fashion.
Join Wear Aware as we host a panel of sustainable fashion experts and innovators exploring how we can all wear better, maintain and grow our personal style and have less impact on our environment.
Following the panel discussion stay to discuss what you’ve learnt over an indulgent slice of cake and join our unique clothes swap experience.
Clothes swap: We invite you to bring up to 3 items of clothing you ‘love’. Don’t worry, we’re not asking you to give away your favourite duds! It might be an item that you used to ‘love’ but no longer wear, ‘love’ but just can’t make work or you might ‘love’ all of your clothes but realise that you just have too many. Whatever it is, please make sure the items are clean, undamaged, free of stains and ready for another person to love.
From 12-12.45pm drop off your pre-loved items to our art-deco coat check booth. At 1pm sharp panel discussion starts.
While you’re swapping we’ll be exploring the room to discover the tale of your loved item to share with others, as a way of encouraging you and our audience to build a connection with clothes so they’ll find a more permanent home in your wardrobe.
Rethink your Wardrobe is being held in partnership with Green Living Centre and is supported by Inner West Council.
