Swish-Swish-Swish In The City


 Swish-in-the-City is a brand new monthly swishing event run by Haven Refuge Wolverhampton.
I had the privilege of attending their first event which was held  the Student Union Bar in Wolverhampton.
Swishing is a recent trend that has been sweeping the fashion industry, after being embraced by the fashionistas of New York. It wasn't long before London got involved.

Swishing is eco-shopping in an ethical way, where you trade in clothes you don't want for clothes you do. Also in this case your also helping raise money for a good cause, The Haven Women's Refuge.  

I was super excited to attend the event, but when the lovely ladies gave me the okay to review the event I was over the moon. =D 

Each lady was greeted with a lovely Cosmopolitian 

First Time Swishers

Body shop was also their to show their support and raise awareness of up coming events and products
as well as offering relaxing hand massages.

.....and the winner is???

...the dig for treasure...

a fellow swisher swapped some unwanted clothes for this mid-length skirt

the lovely baking society showed their support!


A Beauty Product Stand "Forever"

........finally The Ex-Change!

A huge thank you to the lovely ladies at Haven for Organizing the Event.

Has anyone else been to a swishing event? What was it like? 
If not I suggest finding out where your nearest Swishing Event is and have a go.
After all it is fun and one women's pain is another's pleasure =D

I have never been to one. I had never head of them before. There is so many things happening in NY that you cannot keep track with them all. Sounds like you had a ball. Follow me on Twitter or Facebook if you are there, not on Google Connect.
