This Saturday Fashion Fights Poverty will host DC's first ever "fashion swap"

Fashion Fights Poverty will host DC's first ever "fashion swap" on Saturday, July 18th from 12noon to 5pm at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel. Clothing items will be donated to Washington, DC's Covenant House, an organization that provides shelter and protection, food, clothing, counseling and job training to Washington, DC youth.

How does it work?
Consign: Bring your former favorites for consignment with Current Boutique. Current will consign quality items that can be resold. Consigners can also choose to donate their consignment to Fashion Fights Poverty.

Swap: Attendees will leave their unwanted articles of clothing, shoes, and accessories on tables based on clothing size range or accessory type. The swap begins with a collective pile on the table. At a determined time after the event begins, attendees dive in and find their next "new to them" item(s) from the pile. Guests can interact and make trades with other guests. There is a time limit, once time limit is reached all other items will be donated to Covenant House Washington.

Donate: Guests can donate items to Covenant House Washington. At the end of the event, clothing not consigned or swapped will go to Covenant House.

For entry into this event, all guests must bring an item (clothing, accessories or shoes) big or small. RSVP at
