Spring has arrived, and just in time to clean out those closets. Before you toss your designer threads, pack them up and bring them into Fashion Takes Action’s first designer swap event at Toronto Fashion Week.

“The reality is many of us have at least one item in our closet that we paid good money for, and no longer wear,” shared Kelly Drennan, FTA’s Executive Producer, who’s encouraging attendees to pack a well loved and stylish piece to donate to a great cause. To participate in the swap, you must bring along at least one brand name or designer item, which you exchange for a swap token. The more you bring, the more you can swap. Not only is the event a perfect way to score great new pieces, but it’s also the chicest way to be eco-friendly.

The event will take place on March 16 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m at The Tents in David Pecaut Square. Tickets $15, advance, $20 at the door. Visit fashiontakesaction.com for more details.
