More about Swishing

What to bring There must be things in your wardrobes, cupboards and drawers that you just never wear. So whether it be shirts, tops, skirts, dresses, jumpers, cardies, trousers, coats, jackets, shoes, handbags, necklaces or scarves then simply bring them to be swapped 1 for 1 for some lovely new pieces for your wardrobe. 

What not to bring As we like to keep the exchange as fair as possible, please leave at home the shabby old bits that you aren’t wearing simply because they are worn out. Please bring between 3 and 10 clean quality items that you would be proud to pass on.

Why should I go? Swishing is a sociable, fun, exciting eco-chic way of shopping. You can refresh your wardrobes and feel fabulous with your newly exchanged finds. With a wide selection of items to choose from you and your girlfriends can be sure to enjoy an evening of fun, fashion & treats in style.
