Swish in the City

01 Sep 2012 10:00

Venue: Grosvenor Gloucester Road Casino

We are prepping for yet another fabulous "Swish in the City" swishing event hosted by Back to the Fuschia in South Kensington at the fabulous Grosvenor Gloucester Road Casino.

This daytime event is designed as a haven where Ladies Socialise, Fashions are Swished and Champagne is Sipped.

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

Bring along fashions you may no longer like or wear, items that you are ready to part with and exchange them for some great pieces from the Swish. All items brought along are allocated points and your total points are what you then have to spend within the Swish.

What you need to know:
Tickets for this event are £5.00 in advance - you can purchase them via this link: http://www.swishinthecitygc.eventsbrite.com
Tickets are £7.50 at the door.

ALL 100% of proceeds go to the Marie Curie Cancer Care, therefore it is a fabulous eco-friendly event for a fantastic cause!

Also, you can check out our video from our first event, to get a glimpse of what this event is all about:

***Please advise*** Because the venue is a Casino, we ask that you bring photo ID with you. Apologies for the inconvenience, but laws are laws. You must be 18+ to participate.

How the Swish works:

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

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 half 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
