HOW DOES IT WORK?

People all over the world will host and/or attend swaps and document their events across the week. Fashion Revolution and GFX will provide how to guides, promotional tools, advice, and support along the way. Resources will be published on this webpage on the March 9th, 2020.

Register your swap using our online form. Promote your event by uploading it to our events map and share photos and updates from your events on social media using the hashtags #fashionrevolution and #clothesswap. As a movement, we will aim to highlight the benefits of swapping for people and planet and answer the tricky questions that come along with it.

HOST A CLOTHES SWAP

You can host in your living room, your office, in your local community centre or a public event space. You can invite friends, enemies, colleagues or open it up to members of the public. The possibilities are endless. If you do decide to host, make sure you register your swap to receive the complete swap kit which is full of goodies to help you on your way.

You may have noticed we’re a little behind on our resources for The Great Fashion Revolution Clothes Swap, and we promise that we’re doing everything we can to get these resources in your hands (and on your browser windows) as soon as possible.

We also know that as the current outbreak of COVID-19 continues to spread, many of you in affected regions are considering whether these public events will be safe during Fashion Revolution Week. We ask that all citizens around the world follow the advice of their local government health guidelines and comply with any restrictions to public events and venues. 

Here’s what this means in a practical sense:

  • We’ll be sharing more information in the coming days on how to turn the revolutionary collective action of swapping into more micro and digital-based activations. We’ll also be vocal about the importance of using your voice online as a powerful alternative where public participation is reduced.
  • We don’t want The Great Fashion Revolution Clothes Swap to be about a single day, week or month in the year. To us, swapping is about reinventing consumption as we know it. And it’s this kind of bold behaviour that needs our community to step up all year long. So if you can’t partake or host a public event in your region now, or for the next few months, know that we’ll be supporting you, our community, for the year to come.

We want to change how people think and feel about their clothes and how they engage with their wardrobes. Consumption and waste are huge issues within the current fashion industry and we believe we have the power to change that.

Did you know: Extending the life of clothing by nine months can reduce carbon, waste and water footprints by 20-30%. Thats huge! Swapping is the future, promise.

Of course! We want to make this the largest global clothes swap ever and that means everyone is invited. Register your event using our online form and promote it by adding it to our events map. If you’re ready to start planning, in order to make the biggest impact, organise for your swap to fall during Fashion Revolution Week which is the 20th to the 26th of April 2020.

It’s time for a Fashion Revolution. Swapping clothes is good for your wardrobe, your wallet and the planet. We all know that but it’s time to show the rest of the world the power of the swap. By joining together, we hope to make enough noise that the whole planet listens. As a united movement, we will aim to highlight the benefits of swapping for people and planet and answer the tricky questions that come along with it.

Fashion Revolution Week is our key campaign week in April, which falls on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1138 people and injured many more on 24th April 2013. That is the day Fashion Revolution was born. The current fashion system is fragmented, opaque and built upon the exploitation of resources and of people. We need to rethink how that industry works. We need to rethink the model. Read the Fashion Revolution Manifesto to see what we believe the industry should look like and why we campaign for change.
