Shopping for new clothes can be fun, but digging through someone else's wardrobe and picking out your favourites – for free! – is equally as thrilling, and also a lot more sustainable. In partnership with Marina Barrage and social enterprise Terra SG, the Swapaholic team will be holding the very first Swapathon on September 7. Not only will you be able to swap clothes with other participants, but you also have to actively earn your 'swap points' first. There will be plenty of vendor booths and workshops to engage with that will help you score those points. You can also start mastering your swapping skills at the beauty, book and plant swap first before you dive into the main event that is the fashion swap.
