ABOUT FASHION REVOLUTION
Fashion Revolution Week 2018 marks the 5th year of Fashion Revolution, the world’s largest fashion activism movement founded to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased. The campaign will run from April 23-29 in more than 100 countries, and will challenge more people than ever before to demand systemic reform of the fashion industry.
GLOBAL FASHION EXCHANGE is an international platform promoting sustainability in the fashion industry with inspiring forums, educational content and cultural events. Through interactive clothing swaps GFX empowers consumers to take action for a better environment while they stylishly renew their wardrobe and save hundreds of thousands of clothes from being discarded.
ABOUT SWAP SOCIETY
"Swap Society is taking swapping parties to the next level."
Swap Society is the ultimate clothing swap for women and kids. Get equal value for your clothes with the ease of online shopping.
We are excited to host our first pop-up event during Fashion Revolution Week as part of the GLOBAL SWAP EVENT.
HOW IT WORKS
Clear your closets of the clothes and accessories that you don't love, that don't fit, or that you haven't worn in ages. If you have kids, bring the stuff they've outgrown too. Make sure everything is freshly laundered and free from stains, tears and odors.* Bring it all to the GLOBAL SWAP EVENT at Open Mind Art Space and freshen up your wardrobe without buying something new.
GET EQUAL VALUE FOR YOUR CLOTHES
Get equal value for the clothes and accessories you swap. Unlike most swaps that follow a "give an item, take an item" policy, we have a proprietary points system that keeps things super fair and makes sure you get equal value for your clothing. If you leave the event with leftover points, you can use them later on our site. Swap Society members can swap 24/7!
*Unaccepted items will be upcycled by MeWe Clothing or donated to Downtown Women's Center.
WHAT WE ACCEPT**
Women's clothes, handbags, shoes and fashion jewelry, as well as Babies' and Kids' clothing and accessories.
WHAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT
For health and safety reasons we do not accept Women's swimwear, panties or hosiery.
OUR POINTS SYSTEM
Points are based on a few key metrics including desirability, seasonality, condition, inventory and retail value.
**This pop-up event will run a little differently than our regular online service. You can swap shoes and handbags at this event. There's no per-item fee—you just pay the entrance fee. It's also a point range-free event, so you can spend your points freely without any point range limits.
SEE YOU AT THE SWAP IN
There are metered parking lots behind the gallery space, as well as street parking on Santa Monica Blvd. and the surrounding side streets. You can also take a Lyft!
