Local wares, local tunes and fashion with a conscience coming to special one-day market
Many women often find themselves staring into an
overflowing wardrobe while thinking they have nothing at all to wear. It’s a modern conundrum, but
one that there is a solution for.
The Clothing Exchange will officially launch in Adelaide during The
Ladies Day Out on Sunday 23 March 2014, presented by K Marie Events.
The clothes swapping phenomenon has been gaining traction across the nation and the globe as a
sustainable alternative to traditional shopping. The Clothing Exchange’s signature brand of swaps,
which see preloved clothes checked in for button ‘currency’ and then set up neatly like a shop, will
take place at 1pm at the Vitalstatistix Theatre Company based in the Waterside Workers Hall. The
stunning venue is located in the heart of Port Adelaide, only a stones throw from the Port River.
The inaugural Adelaide Clothing Exchange will be joined by the Ladies Day Out market featuring local and handmade jewellery, pampering and sweet treats, including Skin Deep Wines providing wine tastings, and live music from Sweet Escape and Jayzee to provide the backdrop to a day that is sure to delight women of any age.
To take part in The Clothing Exchange participants must bring along up to 6 items of clothing (shoes
and accessories are also allowed) that still hold value and are in good condition, clean and pressed –
but no longer wanted for some reason.
The check-in for garments will be open from 11am till 12pm, and swapping will kick off at 1pm. The
market and entertainment will be open from 11 am till 4 pm.
Ladies can come along for a wardrobe update, and stay for good times with friends. What better way
to spend a Sunday!
