Following the incredible success of the January Swap Party, ESM is coming to south London. There will be music (DJ), a bar with amazing cocktails. Party and Mingle, then go home with new clothes!!!
How does it work?
This is a token swap party, so each guest is allocated a token for each item they bring along. You get more tokens depending on the outfit brand and quality (up to 3 per item).
Each item you take from the rails has a corresponding value of tokens. More tokens can be purchased (£5 per token) if you need them.
We do not charge money for any of the clothes swaped, anything you take off the rails and exchange for tokens is yours to keep.
All the expert style sessions and talks by the fashion gurus are free to attend on the day.
*** PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS HOSTED IN A GROUP SETTING
**While we endeavour to cater to all sizes and styles we cannot guarantee that clients will find items that suit and fit them at the event.

How many items do I need to bring?
You must bring at least ONE item but a maximum of 15 items. You can come without items but will need to buy tokens on the night to get clothes from the rails.
What condition must the clothes be in?
They must be NEW or Nearly new / good condition. Items must be in a good condition, something that has shrunk, is stained or needs repairing (e.g. missing buttons, broken zips, loose sequins or beading, rips, tears, fabric pulls or holes, bobbly bits, disintegrating seams or hems, lint or fluff) will not be accepted. We have the right to refuse to accept items, if they are not in nearly new condition.
If I don't have any clothes to bring along to the event, can I still come and take clothes home?
Absolutely! Tokens are available for purchase on the day. Everyone with a token will be allowed to browse the rails first and those without tokens are allowed to browse thereafter for anything left.
What happens to the clothes I donated AFTER the event which are not ?
Where the clothes are not moved to the next event, your clothes will be donated to Cancer Research UK for sale to raise funds for Cancer research.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
