Fashion Week-End Swap

New York's Swap Team is celebrating the end of fashion week in the style they know best, swapmeet style. The Swap Team is a group we admire for their promotion of sustainable living, by gathering large groups of people together in a random space to trade clothing they are tied of.  The concept is simple but oh so fantastic in that you can get a whole new wardrobe, while getting rid of your old styles, not spend a dime, and meet some sweet new people.

To make the experience just that much, better The Swap Team will also be entertaining all with music and refreshments.  As they always say, one person's trash is another's treasures!  So if your in the New York area, get ready to revamp your wardrobe for Spring on the cheap!
