Thinking about your summer holiday wardrobe? Don’t want to succumb to the lure of fast fashion but would like some lovely new items to pep up your summer selection? Then join us for The Big Summer Swish at Open Door!
During this fun evening you will be able to swap any items you no longer wear for some fabulous new pieces to pimp your wardrobe!
How it works:
6.30pm – 7.30pm – drop your items and have a drink: Bring up to 7 items of clothing in a named / distinctive bag (you’ll need to be able to identify which one is yours!) to Open Door. Check in your bag with one of our Swishing-helpers – they will give you a Swish token for every item you bring. Head into Open Door’s beautiful secret garden to enjoy a glass of bubbles or a soft drink and nibbles and a balmy (hopefully!) summer evening with friends.
7.30-8.30pm – Let the Swish begin! Retrieve your bag, and browse the rails of clothing, try things on in the changing rooms, and chose your items – you can take home one for each token. When you’re ready to make your choice, find a Swishing-helper by the door to check you out and take your tokens. Et voila, all set for summer!
What you can swap: Women’s and men’s summer clothes, bags, and other accessories. Please bring the quality you would like to find at the event – washed and in good condition. Anything left over at the end of the event will be donated to local charity shops.
Booking essential – your ticket includes a glass of bubbles (or non-alcoholic alternative) and nibbles.
The swish is running as part of our Make & Mend programme – made possible by a Dacorum Borough Council Green Community Grant. We’re also so grateful for the team at Transition Town Berkhamsted for their support with this event!
