Fashion Revolution Clothes Swap at Lido Connect : Neo-Vintage Edition
We are back! Come join and express yourself and style through dressing up without costing the Earth! Let’s declutter the clothes, join us for swapping, and bring back the new (preloved) ones to update your closets to be more in sync with your style ! 

At Fashion Revolution, we believe that freedom of speech can be expressed through ‘dressing up’. Clothes are one of the most powerful way to celebrate our selves, beliefs, and what we can do for the Planet Earth and our Society!

You’ll be going home with new clothes from our community, in the same time helping reduce carbon footprints by preventing these clothes from going to landfills and save money by not shopping for new clothes!

All you have to do is declutter your closet, bring in your clean and good-conditioned clothes that you won't wear anymore (not only vintage but any kind) and exchange them with our community. There will also be music, drinks and joy-sparking conversations with stylish minds who will share with you their tips and tricks on personal style, swapping, thrifting, self-love and breaking out beauty-standard and intentional living. We also have a personal styling corner to help you select your style to speak out who you are, because we want to be inclusive of all genders, expressions and sizes!
