Twishing! Clothes for nothing and shoes for free!

Swishing - clothes swapping - is gaining popularity throughout the UK. Now is bringing to you the first Twishing event - Swishing on Twitter - to coincide with London Fashion Week.

On Saturday 19th Feb the main event takes place between 12 and 20.00 - but could be set to last all week!!

Here is how it works....

Twish your garments from your twitter feed using photos of your items, the #twishing hashtag, & your #location!

- Follow to the #twishing tag and check out items up for grabs from #twishing

- You can do direct swaps or just Swish freely. As with any other Swish, trust in Swishing Karma- bring fabulous items and you will certainly get something treasured back in return...

EXAMPLE: Size 12 purple Marc Jacobs dress from #manchester! #twishing [link to photo here]

Once you have found a match- you can lovingly pack up your once loved item and post it of to its new home, safe in the knowledge that you have brought one lucky lady and one grateful planet a lot of joy!

Don't know what Swishing is yet? 

We all love fabulous new clothes but not the unfortunate side effects. Our bank managers don’t understand the importance of shiny new shoes, and buying heaps of new stuff is pretty terrible for the planet. What’s a girl to do?

Swishing is shopping without these hangovers. We all bring nice, clean, presentable clothes that are lurking unloved in our wardrobe, and other girls fall in love with them and give them a good home. You might bring one sweater and take two pairs of shoes, or hang a party frock on the ‘Swishing Rail’ and take a pair of skinny jeans and feather boa.

*Be careful to only exchange address details in personal emails or via DM and not publically through twitter* 

This event will be happening alongside the V&A Fashioning Body Shape & Style Grand Swishing Event & to kick off *London Fashion Week* and will include live link ups to the Swish
