WALK IN WARDROBE - Canary Wharf

When:
Saturday 14th July 2018 -
02:00pm to 04:00pm
Where: Le Sorelle - Canary Wharf, 1 Thames Quay, London, E14 9SG
The WALK IN WARDROBE™ is a pop-up clothes swap with a difference: There are no tokens, no redeemable vouchers and no rejections. You just have to try on first. If it fit's you it's yours!
 
Imagine what it would be like to shop without money. To walk into a room full of clothes with everything already yours. A place where it doesn't matter what brand name or price tag a garment had, but your only worry is that it's right for you. Fairytale you say? Nope, this place actually exists and it's loved and known by many as the WALK IN WARDROBE™. Our simple yet powerful idea is this: LET's REDUCE TEXTILE POLLUTION. Let's find a new home for all those beautiful clothes that were no longer right for their previous owners. Let's use up what we've got collectively, rather than buy new all the time. Our only request: TRY ON FIRST! And if it fits you, it's yours! Simplez!
 
In contrast to conventional swap/swishing events, at the WALK IN WARDROBE™ you are not constrained to swapping like for like, there are no tokens, no redeemable vouchers and no rejections! As long as it fits and suits you, it's yours (not your friend, aunty or neighbour)** irrespective of how much or little you brought along.
 
You can browse through the rails, arranged by seasonal colour characteristics and discover what a coherent wardrobe could look like. In our mission to slow down the fashion industry and encourage a mindful approach to shopping, you can find "new-to-you" pieces for yourself from our well curated collection of preloved clothes.
 
Join Personal Stylist and Sustainable Fashion Expert Daisy Schubert and her team at LE SORELLE Barge Boat moored just outside South Quay Station in the heart of Canary Wharf. We will be speaking* about the drama of holiday packing and how we can make more efficient choices when preparing our suitcase for a lovely time away. The principles you will learn apply to your everyday wardrobe, too. Isn't a suitcase a mini capsule wardrobe after all? We will serve delicious fingerfood, including a glass of bubbly and allow plenty of opportunities to network and meet new people during this sociable afternoon. 
 
 
The WALK IN WARDROBE™ would not be possible without the generous donations of great clothes that need a new home, but this is by no means compulsary. Your ticket is all you need to enjoy our "IF IT FITS YOU, IT'S YOURS!" policy. Should you decide to clear out some of the pieces that you no longer wear to make room for new treasures, please bring them in good condition with hangers. Your unwanted clothes, bags and accessories be displayed for others to complement their wardrobes.
 
 

* PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS HOSTED IN A GROUP SETTING - FOR IN DEPTH PERSONAL STYLE ADVICE PLEASE BOOK ONE OF OUR GROUP WORKSHOPS OR A PRIVATE CONSULTATION!

**While we endeavour to display a wide variety of colours, styles and sizes, Wardrobe Workshop does notguarantee that clients will find items that suit and fit them at the WALK IN WARDROBE™.
