How can we slow down fashion, get more use out of clothes, but also have clothes that fit us — literally and figuratively speaking — at the current point in our lives?
Well, that’s something that clothes swapping is ideal for! Swapping allows us to responsibly re-home our existing garments that no longer suit us while being able to access different pieces that would fit us better, size wise, color wise, style wise or otherwise.
Swapping is a great way to extend the lives of clothes, so I knew that I wanted to cover this topic in our second season all about circular fashion and slowing down consumption.
In this episode, I am chatting with Nicole Robertson about all things swapping. Nicole is the founder of Swap Society, an online clothing swap shop for women and kids making it easy — and affordable — to switch up your wardrobe more sustainably.
Nicole is sharing:
- The benefits of swapping — from an environmental impact perspective and also in our own lives
- How swapping might change the relationship we have with our closets and our personal style
- The impact that evolving fashion trends have on the secondhand market, including swapping
- And what online swapping through Swap Society looks like
