Its time to start collecting your clothes because we’re excited to announce that Calgary will be hosting another Take Off Your Clothes Clothing SWAP on October 16, 2011 at SoHo Bar and Grill!

Here’s the concept:
Attendees bring pieces (shoes, accessories, clothing, etc) from their closets to swap for new items. For every item donated that meets our criteria (clean and in good repair and “fashionable” – including unique, current, or vintage pieces) individuals will receive 1 ticket which can be exchanged for another piece in the “swappers boutique.” Any items that are left over are donated to Goodwill Industries of Alberta.

Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door – get your advance tickets online now on Eventbrite!

We’ll pick up your clothes or you can come to one of our designated clothing drop-offs from 10am-12pm any Saturdayfrom September 1 – October 15 (except Sept 10, 2011).

Domingo Luminog will be returning this year to help out with styling at the event! Feel free to e-mail him at domingo@mydomingo.com with any style questions you have prior to The SWAP! We’re also very excited to have Two Towers Entertainment returning for the 3rd time to DJ at the event!
