28 October 2015 Fashion Exchange

Do you want to update your wardrobe in a sustainable and affordable way?

Local residents are being invited to participate in the first ever Fashion Exchange for Sustainability at the Glenreagh Street TAFE Campus as part of Planet Ark’s National Recycling Week and the Living Coast Festival this November.

The Fashion Exchange will take place on Thursday 12 November, kicking off with a free morning tea at 10.30am and the opportunity to view the latest works from TAFE fashion students.

The event will be a fun and interactive way to update your wardrobe and accessories for free, making it a great alternative to buying new and is brought to the Festival by MidWaste Regional Waste Forum, Coffs Harbour City Council and North Coast TAFE.

“Everyone is welcome to get involved and come along for a fun, sustainable event that enables re-use of pre-loved clothes in a creative way,” said Councillor Sally Townley.

To be involved, just drop off your pre-loved, good quality clothes or fashion items on 9 and 10 November between 10am and 2pm at the TAFE Campus in Glenreagh Street, Fashion room G.G.05  and you will be given your tokens to use to ‘purchase’ other items on the Exchange day.
