A clothes swap with a difference! We will have stylists on hand to help you explore your individual style.
We are working towards creating a Community Interest Company, partnering with other professionals who share our passion for a circular future. Currently we are in the exploratory phase of working how we can best contribute locally whilst becoming a venture that adds value to participants lives.
The R_evolving Wardrobe
About this event
This began during Fashion Revolution Week 2022. We are embracing the importance of creating wardrobes that sustain both our lives and the planet.
The next R_evolving Wardrobe is on Saturday 27th May 2.30pm. The perfect opportunity to dig out all those gorgeous pieces that you just never wear.
As usual we invite you to bring up to 5 pieces that are in great condition that you no longer wear. You will receive a token for each piece to exchange for something new to you. We are trialling this system so please think in terms of the nicer your pieces the better quality the items that will be available to you or the larger the number of pieces you can choose in return.
Anyone who books their tickets before Weds 24th May, we have a special treat. You will be invited to join Cornelia Costeanu at 2pm for a mini-workshop on "Quick alteration Hacks".
Cornelia is passionate about the community in South West London where she lives. With a background in the education sector and a degree in Design, Cornelia has been involved in the creative community for more than a decade. She has developed a successful enterprise project for a well-known charity as well as running a micro business herself. Her expertise on how to enjoy, alter & mend preloved clothes is extraordinary. All for the cost of buying your entry ticket a bit early! PS - check out what she's wearing, this woman looks stylish even on her bicycle!
Exciting news is that we will be partnering with Red Gibbons again this month. Make it with Red are family creative art sessions. This time there will be a simple textile based activity; a little birdie told me to beware of the cat puppet she is making with you all! Not only are the sessions a great way to spend time with your small people, this also gives you an opportunity to join us for some swapping.
You can drop off your items from 1pm.
We will be adding a few extra surprises so keep an eye out for updates on https://www.instagram.com/r_evolvingwardrobe/
I will be sharing a little information on our retail space in the Loft Hounslow in upcoming newsletters so please sign up for all the insider news and offers.
Please note that free parking is available at the Kew Retail Park, however this is within the ULEZ scheme so do check if your car is at risk of being charged/fined. There is street parking on the opposite side of the South Circular but this is unpredictable.
