Tenerife’s new Clothes Swap – a way forward for sustainable fashion that avoids environmental impact and fads

This coming Sunday, 26 January, fashion writer and internationally renowned stylist, Lupe Castro (@mscastrorides), together with event organiser and owner of Slow and Co. Kim De Coster, will be hosting ‘Out With the Old, In With the Green’ – a New Year’s clothes swap they describe as the most stylish event of the season at Hotel Suite Villa María.

The future of fashion is all about sustainability and swapping clothes means new looks without the environmental impact. So, this glamorous and stylish event is a way to refresh your wardrobe for 2020 while remaining sustainably on-trend without buying into fast-fashion fads.

The concept is simple. You bring all those beautiful pieces you don’t wear any more, then browse the curated collections of pre-loved treasures that are sure to up your style stakes this coming new year.

Designer and fashionista Luis Oliveira will open the event and countdown the swap entry. Whilst we are sorting out the rails for the swap – we will be keeping you busy with a handful of unique workshops: Concepto Yoga will present their ‘Your Inner Mirror’ workshop and is followed by Louise Burgess of The Loft Natures Attic and Juliane Nendel’s workshop ‘Go Love Yourself’ that combines a bespoke aromatherapy demonstration with a personal development talk.

Participants can bring up to 15 items (preferably on hangers) to Hotel Suite Villa Maria between 10.00 and 13.00. We are looking for party dresses, bags, belts, skirts, trousers (not jeans), jumpers and coats. All items must be in good condition, and any pieces from brands such as Primark and Lefties or pieces with bobbles, stains or damage will not be accepted.
