EcoChic Swishing

By Butterboom Writers  /  October 26, 2010

Hong Kong’s clothes swapping event.

Don’t know what to do with your old clothes? Well why not swap them with others? Popular in London and New York, EcoChic Swish is a clothes-swapping event that has made its way to Hong Kong, where fashionistas bring their pre-worn clothes and accessories to swap with others.

To participate, find a minimum of 5 items of clothing, shoes or accessories that are in tip-top condition and donate them before the event. In return, you will receive a corresponding number of ‘Swishing credits’ to pick up ‘new’ pieces on the night. There’s also a chance to win John Hardy jewellery, a reconstructed outfit by Johanna Ho, a brocade clutch by Kotur and lots more.

All proceeds raised will to go to Green2greener charity and all excess clothing will go to St.James Settlement’s ‘Green Ladies’ second-hand charity shop.
