I’m going to let you all in on a little secret…there is a way you can get designer fashion for free. Yep, that’s right…you heard me. Free.
How is this possible? By going to a clothing swap, of course! Clothing swaps are not only great ways to clear out your closet of things you may have worn once or that still have the tags on them, they are the best places to find some awesome things that other people don’t want anymore. What’s the saying? One fashionista’s last season is another’s couture?
This Thursday, May 9, check out Swap In The City at the new DC tech event space 1776 (1133 15th St. NW, 12th Floor). Hosted by SNOBSWAP and Dewdrop, this charity event will be a get together where fashionista/os can eat, drink and swap, swap, swap designer clothes, all while helping to support Becky’s Fund, an organization that does great work to end domestic violence.
In addition to the clothing swap, there will be pop up shops from local area fashion brands. Julie Donaldson of Comcast Sports will be hosting and the guest speaker of the evening will be Liz Fassbender, CapFABB co-founder. There will also be a fashion show with stylish swimwear from D’Milikah and luxury pieces from SNOBSWAP.com.
Tickets are $20 if you RSVP before and $25 at the door. Hor d’oeuvres are served with drink ticket. The attire is dress to impress. You can purchase your tickets here.
