Oikos Swap Style, the sustainable fashion event

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know I’m a swap market fan and here is why:

– You can find crazy things for free that seem to be made only for you (like the Italy T-shirt I’m wearing in the picture)

– You get to try different style of clothes you would have never bought otherwise

– You live the thrill of the treasure hunting… and it’s a lot of fun!

As part of my volunteering activities at oikos Copenhagen*, together with the EventLab team, I organized an event to raise awareness about sustainable fashion consumption. As our guest speakers, we had the pleasure to host Sarah Netter, CBS researcher at Minstra Future of Fashion, and Johanna Topoocoo, project manager at Danish Fashion Institute (DAFI). Following the learning through experience format, part of the event was a real swap market, where people could trade used clothes and accessories in good conditions for free.

My friend Julie Sunflower joined the event and she realized this footage for her videoblog. She got very nice stuff from the swap… I just realized I was too busy with my PR activities :D! Follow Julie on Instagram!

Thank you for sharing!
