Outer order creates inner calm, especially when it comes to curating a beautiful and stylish wardrobe. Clean out and declutter your closet and bring your best lightly loved pieces to swap with women in your community! You’ll have time to browse the community closet and try on pieces on your own, with a stylist on hand for questions. As a bonus, you’re also invited to bring unwanted, unswappable clothes for recycling!

Book: The Day the World Stops Shopping by J.B. Mackinnon
Guest Speaker to be announced | Guests will participate in a natural dye workshop. Bring something you own and make it new again!
Unlearning the consumption norms of the global West is no small feat! Start small by shopping your own closet and summoning your inner artist. We’ll teach you how to make the most of nature’s treasures such as plants for natural dyes to transform the clothes you already have into pieces that you wear and love. Bring a garment to refresh with dye and you’ll leave with a ‘new’ garment! Tip: lighter colored garments are the best blank canvas.
Care + Rewear - $30
Thurs Oct 26th | 5:30pm
Book: Loved Clothes Last by Orsola de Castro
Guest Speaker to be announced | Guests bring clothes that need TLC and take home revived clothes you learn to repair yourself, or are repaired by our in house tailor (price of mending not included in ticket cost).
Extending the life of your garments is the most sustainable way to manage your closet. A fresh perspective or minor alterations to a garment can often increase its life ten fold. Bring a piece from your closet that you’d like to wear more and/or that needs some TLC and we’ll teach you how to rethink, restyle and refresh your piece so that it feels like new!
