The Clothes Swapping Party is an extension of the conscious fashion movement, 13-in-31, that aims to offer a place for online challengers to meet and learn more about the concept of sustainable fashion through exchange of clothing items. 13-in-31 is also collaborating with Green Initiatives to screen the short film, UNRAVEL, that shows one of the scenarios for the final 'resting' place of our clothes. More often these are ones that have been carelessly or quickly discarded by consumers after only a few uses.
The event will also feature a short workshop with a stylist and a designer who will share tips towards mixing-n-matching clothes, while also providing the attendees with DIY upcycling ideas. A recycling box under Green Initiatives' RE:FORM program will also be setup on site for responsibly discarding/re-using all kinds of clothing in good condition.
