    Wakeup Campaign presents: ‘Conscious Swap Shopping Events’ launch party @Rich Mix, Shoreditch London
    This is no ordinary swap-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 was 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!   Speakers/stalls: - 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 - Izzy Lane: An ethical fashion clothing line   Below are a few pics of the night:   [gallery columns="4"]
