Evolver Los Angeles Presents: Dress to ExpressClothing Swap
Saturday,February 25, 2012 from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM (PT)
February 25th for a ritual experience of gifting, sharing andhonoring the Divine Feminine as we trade our most glorious-but-no-longer-neededGoddess Wardrobes.
What we wear is a most revealing form of self-expression; it is art andfunction, statement and comfort. In these fast-changing times, what we saythrough our clothing is as important to the world as it is to our ownconfidence and creativity.
BUT our culture's obsession with buying new clothes, shoes and accessorieseach season is proving to be unsustainable for the environment (not to mentionour checking accounts!). Approximately 12 million tons of textile waste isgenerated each year just in North America! We can stop the cycle of buying andtrashing perfectly wearable clothes, and instead, experience the thrill ofshopping and the yumminess of finding new outfits while sharing with ourfriends and community members.
How it Works: Bring a bag, get a bag! Bring us your gently worn clothes,shoes, handbags, accessories and jewelry. (Please turn your ripped, stained andunwearables into rags, animal bedding or art projects.) After you arrive, yourclothes will be prepared for the swap by our team. Once all guests havearrived, we will "open the store." You can fill one bag for every bagof items your brought.
After the swap, we'll circle up, giving us all another chance to exchangeitems we grabbed that may not fit properly or we just know will look superfabulous on someone else!
We'll also have stylists on hand to give you fashion and accessorizing tips.
Refreshments will be provided.
All unclaimed clothing will be donated to the Good Shepherd Shelter forAbused Women. *Feel free to bring donation items specifically for the charityas well.
*This is an exclusive event—You MUST RSVP to get attendance info!
