    Conscious Swap Shopping Events @ Rich Mix 17th Sept 2012 part of LDF

    Wakeup Campaign presents: The launch of ‘Conscious Swap Shopping’

      Part of London Design Festival, this is no ordinary 'shwop'-shopping event, ‘Conscious Swap Shopping’ is an initiative created by the behavioural change social enterprise Wakeup Campaign.   The events will be an exploration of our consciousness through the way we consume, behave, shop and feel by introspectively debating on identity, habits, behavioural patterns and the psychoanalysis of our shopping rituals.  


      Not only will you have the opportunity to bring your clothes and swap them for new ones, there will be a Q&A session where influential guest speakers from the sustainable fashion, lifestyle & academic sphere will be discussing their work, debating on how we can all contribute and help within the re-using/up cycling marketplace.   The space will be filled with interesting sections for people to become immersed in fashion for change. There will be a section where people can get their clothes customised by a professional costume designer, engage with visual stimulants for people to interact and engage with, there will be raffles to be won, loads of goodies for sale and not forgetting the fabulous clothes people acquire when they swap!   Confirmed guests so far are: (Many more to come ;-) - Zahra Mansouri: Costume designer, worked for the likes of Strictly Come Dancing - Grassroots: An ethical fashion clothing line - Plastic Seconds: Recycled jewellery brand - Nicholas ODH, part of the research-led collective, SAINT H  

    Come and be part of the ‘Conscious Swap Shopping’ movement.
