“Be an eco-friendly fashionista”!

Do you have pre-loved fashion items in your closet that is too good to go to waste? Is there any better way to handle them?

Two young ladies, Samantha Wong and Karen Wong, who recently initiated a SWAP & SHOP party and try to make fashion as something “sustainable”.

‘We want to educate guests about prolonging the lifecycle of their garments, encouraging them to share with others and minimising fashion waste. Our mission is to provide a way for our community to easily trade clothing, shoes and accessories that would otherwise go to waste. We are here to help others to be green, be fashionable, save money and have fun along the way’! – founder, Samantha and Karen.

At Swap and Shop, your pre-loved items can be snatched up by other fashionistas in exchange for you to swap and shop for theirs!

By swapping and fashion recycling you reduce waste and give a chance for clothes to get a second life. This is also a chance for you to swap your closet and enjoy a day of trying on high-end clothes, draping yourself with accessories and mingling with other swappers.

Women have been swapping clothes amongst their own small circle of friends. ‘SWAP AND SHOP’ is making that circle bigger by giving you an opportunity not only to mingle and network with like-minded individuals, but also swap your nearly new items while being inspired and re-invigorated in this fun activity!

So, are you ready to SWAP?
