‘The Canberra WorkLeisure Clothes Swap’ will see Canberrans gathering in a local call to disrupt consumption in a fashion industry that still values quantity over quality. The deliberate act of swapping clothes encourages everyone to take a closer look at the clothes in their wardrobes. All are welcome—we are delighted to team up with Evie Kay, Flow Forage Grow, and Rosella Street for this sustainable, community initiative!

Combining an invigorating refreshment of our wardrobes with roundtable discussions with thought leaders and provocateurs, this event will cover a range of issues from #WhoMadeMyClothes to how to care for your clothes and a closer dive into the materials, dyes, plastics, microfibres and chemicals by asking what’s in my clothes?

For anyone who considers herself an activist: this event is for you!

Style of Clothing: WorkLeisure: part athleisure and part traditional work attire, office-appropriate outfits with a sportif twist. All attire must be in pristine condition: no stains, rips, tears, pilling. The rule of thumb is that the item should be in such a condition as to be fit for sale or fit to gift a friend.
