SIP SWAP STYLE FASHION EVENT

Back by popular demand my POP UP SWAP BOUTIQUE and STYLE event is returning to New Farm’s favourite eating place  The Frond Cafe

When:  Sunday 9th June 4:00pm -7:00pm

Where: The Frond Cafe 2/938 Brunswick St, New Farm QLD 4005 (opp New Farm Park)

This unique event is for lovers of fashion, beauty fanatics and coffee hounds.

It’s a perfect combo right!

SIP SWAP STYLE cultivates connections, creativity, caring for community and the planet through sustainable fashion approaches.

This premier sustainable fashion event brings two of our most loved and wasteful industries, coffee and fashion together with one message: reuse, repurpose, recycle, rethink, refuse, reinvent, repair.

Right now you couldn’t be more on point than turning coffee waste into inexpensive deluxe beauty and fashion products.

SIP SWAP STYLE is not your average clothes swap! I select and curate high quality garments and accessories to make the whole experience glamourous, exciting, effortless and fun. With lots of interesting activities in the mix, you also get to wine, dine and mingle with your besties and like- minded women while you shop!

Why clothes shop, when you can clothes swap?

This “chilly” season ( lets face it Queensland doesn’t really have a winter) update your wardrobe without overcapitalising on winter woolies.

What you get:

  • FREE high quality clothing and accessories

  • Receive 1:1 style advice about how to create new looks with your new items with me Sustainable Styling in the style lounge

  • 1x glass of bubbles on arrival (no cheap stuff) this is also a BYO venue so feel free to bring your fave drop too

  • DIY skin care demo with plant guru Botanicals by Bella.  You’ll be shown how to make the most beautiful coffee face and body scrub and a nourishing skin toner

  • Take home a ready made coffee facial scrub (BYO container)

  • A coffee dyeing demo to learn how to turn those stained white garments into new ones from old coffee grounds

  • Take home a supply of old coffee grounds for your DIY projects and for your garden (BYO container)

  • Discover creative ways to transform vintage lace doilies into sustainably stylish homewares and fashion embellishments. Trend alert - every major fashion show in 2019 has sent some kind of crochet garment down its runway

  • Take home handmade vintage lace doilies for your own DIY craftivities

  • Enjoy beautiful savoury and sweet sharing dishes made by the Frond Cafe

  • A chance to win lucky door prizes

  • A chance to support a good cause as a % of the ticket sales will go to Share the Dignity to fund a #pinkbox (dignity vending machine) so women and school aged girls in crisis don’t suffer period poverty.

My SIP SWAP STYLE event will help you BE MINDFUL and CLEAN with your money. By purchasing a ticket your money will go to support:

  • Local businesses

  • A charity Share the Dignity

  • Environmental approaches

  • YOU having a joyful and memorable experience that you’ll be raving about to your friends and work colleagues for weeks on end

  • A chance to mingle with your besties and with like minded women.

How does the swap work ?

  • You can either donate (good quality) winter clothes and accessories prior to the event by dropping them off at the Frond Cafe collection basket

  • You can direct message me to arrange a mutual drop off/pick up point

Do I need to donate items to attend the swap?

No you don’t, you can just come along and enjoy receiving donated goods from generous folk.

What if I can’t attend this fab event, can I still donate clothing, accessory items and make a donation to Share the Dignity ?

Yes of course and I’ll be forever grateful. Please refer to the details above about how to donate your items. To make a donation to Share the Dignity please head to my Everyday Hero page

Clothing donations will open on the 9 April 2019 and close on the 8th June.
