Enfield Swish and Style event

St Mary Magdalene Church Hall, Windmill Hill, Enfield, EN2 7JA  

swop dont shop

Come and take part in a giant clothes swap! You can also learn a variety of repair or upcycling skills to give new life to imperfect clothes.

Research shows you’re likely to have at least six items in your wardrobe that you haven’t worn for a year. So what are you waiting for? Dig them out and swap them for something you will wear!

Working with OLGA we are excited to be delivering a series of Swish and Style events so that you can bring items you no longer wear and swap them for clothes that are new to you.

As well as being able to find new wardrobe gems, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a variety of workshops covering upcycling and mending skills, such as boro and decorative darning.

What’s more, the events are free to attend.

By swapping clothes instead of buying new, we can avoid contributing to the negative cycle of fast fashion, have a positive impact on the environment, get a great deal, and maybe find something completely unique that you won’t see anybody else wearing.

18 Jan 2020 event includes an Upcycling with Embroidery workshop
