Clear the clutter, upgrade your wardrobe, be environmentally friendly – and all of this without having to spend a single cent!

As part of the project IKAT/eCUT, Goethe-Institut Indonesien organizes a clothing swap party. Already a trend in many other countries, clothing swap parties also happen in Indonesia, but according to Ika Vantiani, curator of IKAT/eCUT’s fringe events, they don’t happen often enough!

Held at Dia.Lo.Gue in Kemang on April 8, people are invited to bring their used clothes – which still have to be in good condition – that they would like to swap with other participants to the venue.

“To replace money, we will design a token that will be used as currency during the event,” Ika explained. “For this clothing swap party, we invite different groups of people from a variety of backgrounds and fashion styles to open a swap table.”

A clothing swap party is much more interesting than going to secondhand shops, as you actually have the opportunity to meet the previous owner of the clothes and hear their stories. They can also provide useful tips on how to maintain the piece of clothing you are about to take home.

This event is free and open for public, but only those who bring their own items can swap with other participants. Every single piece of clothing will be checked for its condition first.

What are you waiting for? Raid your wardrobe and get ready to swap!
