Is your wardrobe full to the brim with stuff you never wear? Are you starting to regret that neon corset, or having to accept that your favourite jumper from when you were 12 just really doesn’t fit anymore?
How good would it be to just start over, and get a whole new look? Well you can do it, completely guilt free and having a glass of wine or three as you browse for your next knockout outfit.
You see, 2015 is a very exciting year for tackling extreme poverty – the sustainable development goals are coming into effect, there’s a massive summit on climate change, and we are having a clothes swap at the Brunswick!
Yes, we are choosing to fashion the future with, er, fashion. For one day only (get October 25th in your diary), you can spend an afternoon rummaging, twirling and finding your perfect outfit, and making enough space for it at home by donating your unloved clothes. For just £5 entry, you can bring up to 10 items to trade in (thats 10 new things – from dresses to shoes to jewellery – for 50p each!), with all extra items at a fixed price of £3 each. All profits (and any leftover clothes) are going directly to Oxfam, and their amazing work lifting the poorest people in the world out from poverty.
Join the Facebook event and get your ticket HERE.
Sounds good, but prefer sketching to shopping? For the artistic amongst you, there is also still time to take part in our Fashioning the Future Art Swap, where you can rediscover your creativity and end up owning a one of a kind artwork.
Pop along to the Facebook group to find out more.
Finally, if you want to learn more about becoming part of the generation that ends extreme poverty (while looking fabulous, of course) check out our blog for details on campaigning, ethical shopping and much more.
It’s high time we wore poverty out completely.
