Thank you to all our volunteers that made the Fashion Show & Clothes Swap such an inspiring day. The event was a sell out and we achieved big things! 💚
Scroll down to discover our tips below for organising your own event!
We wanted to make it really easy for anyone to organise their own “Fashion Show & Clothes Swap” so we’ve left all the information for organising this event here for others to reference.
If you have any questions about organising an event like this, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you curious or creative? An organiser or a dancer? Do you sew or style? Do you cheer from the sidelines or search for the spotlight?
If you answered yes to any of the above (and can make the dates below), please sign up to join our team here.
We were looking for:
- Stylists to curate, create and celebrate sustainable style
- Models to represent the magnificent range of ages, shapes and colours in Ealing (we have an amazing choreographer who will help you strut your stuff in your own unique way in tune with your ability)
- Supporters to help sort the clothing and set up the show – generally making the magic happen
- Creative wardrobe items to lend the catwalk show to inspire others to reimagine their wardrobe, we’re specifically looking for clothing that has been repaired or re-imagined
