That's right, we're bringing Style Swap back in 2020 bigger and better than before!
Style Swap is an adult-only fashion party, with the Swap Meet at the heart of the event.
Set to a pumping soundtrack and with a drink in hand, we welcome you to swap your quality pre-loved clothing for someone else’s undiscovered treasures.
When the swapping is done, treat yourself to a session at the glam station, kick back with some delicious eats and enjoy a bespoke cocktail from the bar while taking in a fashion parade.
How does the swap meet work?
Participants are invited to drop off their pre-loved garments and accessories in exchange for tokens. The tokens can then be used to 'purchase' items donated by other members of the swap meet. Each piece of clothing or accessory is worth one token.
You’re invited to register your interest via the form here. Upon registering Bunjil Place will provide detailed information leading up to the event. For a copy of the terms and conditions please click here.
If you have queries about the swap meet please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This a free event and participation is free.
Runway curated by Ironic Minimalist
Curated by Jenna Flood of the blog Ironic Minimalist, this runway will present thrift-store items styled to perfection. See how recycled and upcycled items can be styled to bring new energy to your wardrobe.
About Jenna Flood:
Jenna (aka Ironic Minimalist) is a slow fashion stylist who focuses on educating people on the issues that surround fast fashion. She advocates for sustainable alternatives such as pre-loved, vintage and clothing made with sustainable practices.
Jenna also believes in slowing down our clothing consumption by curating capsule wardrobes and buying for long term investments instead of purchasing on a whim or following short trends. She hopes that in the future, more people invest in the sharing economy by renting or borrowing garments instead of owning them.
In her spare time, Jenna can be found op shopping and reading with her cat, Captain Cuddles, by her side.
