Swish in the City

07 Jul 2012 12:00

Venue: Grosvenor Gloucester Road Casino

After our very first successful "Swish in the City" Charity event, Back to the Fuschia is officially collaborating with the Grosvenor Gloucester Road Casino on a monthly basis to bring you Swishing in SW7, the heart of Kensington & Chelsea.

This event is a Fashion Swapping event combining a Fashionista's love of
Style with her conscience to be Eco-Friendly. Back to the Fuschia has been hosting 'Swish in the City' for over a year and it has become a great success among Fashion lovers in London.

Check out a video of our event here:

£5 in Advance to be paid online:

OR £7.50 on the day.

100% of these proceeds go to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The "Art of Swishing" is a Fun, Frugal and Eco-Fabulous alternative to
Shopping, it is the 'Future for Fashion'.

Swish in the City offers a fantastic afternoon to rejuvinate your wardrobe and add the sparkle it may have lost! Bring along fashions you no longer love, or need as part of your life anymore, and swap
them for some key pieces to revamp your collection.

Enjoy Swishing whilst Socialising with some great ladies in a fantastic environment....a perfect Saturday afternoon!

How the Swish works:

Bring along between 3-8 fashions to swish (Clothes, Shoes and Bags only)

Sign in at the reception, where your fashions will be collected,
graded and points will be awarded for you to spend in the Swish
(the points system is based on the brand of the item, ie. High Street, Designer, Vintage, etc)

Viewing Time will be for an hour for you to see what is available in the swish, what takes your fancy and what you can get with the points you have been awarded. During the Viewing time no items can be taken, just viewed, until the Swish opens

When the Swish is announced open, you can begin taking the fashions you would like to claim as your own.
