ReFashion in Oxford tomorrow

October 11th, 2010

Something old, something new, something to swap, something for you… Tomorrow is Oxford ReFashion, the event that breathes new life into our old clothes. If you went to last year’s event in Oxford, or came to Witney ReFashion in November, you’ll know what to expect. (The video of our November event gives a flavour too.)

ReFashion is a chance to:

  • Swap your unwanted clothes at the “swishing” event
  • Learn about basic repairs and adjustments
  • Get creative with upcycling
  • Get rid of that tatty old bra at the charity bra bank
  • Take some inspiration from the fashion shows
  • And if your clothes are really beyond hope… send them for recycling into rags!

Oxford ReFashion is at Oxford Town Hall tomorrow (Tuesday 19th Feb 2013). It runs from 1pm-7pm.

The clothes being swapped/upcycled/etc can be for men, women, children and babies. Entry is free and you don’t have to bring anything – you can just wander around. The goal is to reduce the amount of clothing that goes to landfill in Oxfordshire each year, while having some fashion-based fun.

Although it’s an Oxford event, you might spot a few Witney faces there. I’m treating it as an opportunity to spring-clean my wardrobe! spilleautomater online
