Hull Fashion Week – WI Clothes Swap

Being slightly obsessed with second hand clothes you’d be suprised to learn that I have never attended a clothes swap, well until now at least. The WI Clothes Swap was just another exciting activity at the Hull Fashion Week Finale. As one of the main focuses at this years HFW was most defiantly reworked and vintage clothes, the clothes swap fitted perfectly into the day. I feel clothes swaps are such a brilliant idea; everyone has excess clothes and sometimes I feel quite bad about how many clothes I have but don’t want or wear. Of course you can obviously sell them on or give them to a charity, however if you’re wanting to do something a bit different then a clothes swap is just for you! I don’t understand why these things are not more popular, Charley from Ramblings of a Beauty Blogger managed to bag herself 2 items for just £2! I also just want to say about how fab it is that this was a Women’s Institute clothes swap! I’ve been interested in the WI for quite a while as I can see it being a really cool and empowering thing to be involved in, what do you think?
