  • Help Us Raise $10K for Washington Women In Need 38%

 

 Upgrade your entire wardrobe for as little as $20! The DRES Swap Party is an opportunity for women to support other women in our community, as women all over Seattle are opening their wardrobes to donate high-end clothing.

 

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Buy your ticket today. Online registration is $35 (discount code Woman4Woman), at the door it will be $35.
  2. Donate your clothing, accessories, shoes and un-opened cosmetics to any of the 15 drop locations around the city (see below).
  3. Each time you donate and drop off clothing you will earn Swap Credits, to be used the day of the swap. NO donations at the door.
  4. At the DRES Swap Party on May 6th, receive all Swap Credits you earned by donating prior to the event.
  5. Use Swap Credits as cash to pay for your new-to-you finds. It's an UNLIMITED one-for-one exchange!
  6. Enjoy the all-female 80's rock band, shop woman-owned small businesses, no-host bits and sips, and a fashion show at 5pm!

 

Locations are popping up all over Seattle, where you can drop-off and donate clothing, shoes, accessories and un-opened cosmetics. When you drop-off your clothing, you earn Swap Credits that you will receive upon check-in to the party on May 6th.

HOW TO DO A WARDROBE EDIT

There is nothing more frustrating than having too many clothes in your closet, and still not being able to find anything to wear!

A) Clean out your closet and get ready to exchange your old clothes for new ones! Drop-off locations near you are listed above.

B) Contact a Personal Image Stylist like Margaret Spencer of DRES System for a wardrobe edit appointment prior to the DRES Swap. She will teach what to purge out of your closet, and how to maintain a small wardrobe you love and only buy (or swap) what you need. She will even haul away all the clothes!

RULES

1) Only things in good condition (washed and ironed) will be accepted. Would you loan it to a friend?
2) Accessories are accepted too. Gently worn shoes, handbags, jewelry, scarves, and unopened beauty products.
3) Clean out pockets! We are not responsible for any lost items.
4) NO stained clothes, smelly, mildew, holes, moth-eaten sweaters, and absolutely no bras or underwear.
5) You must put everything in the dryer (including handbags and shoes) on high heat (at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit) for 10 to 20 minutes for sanitation.
6) Leave your belongings in the off-limits dressing area so that guests don't mistakenly take things others want to keep. "Once a friend lost her shirt, literally!"
7) BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag), we do not supply them.
8) Ground rules:
a. A single-file line will form at front of door. First come, first selection.
b. If two friends have their eye or hand on the same thing, raise your hand and someone will come by to flip a coin.
c. If it’s not in your bag or hand, it’s not yours!
d. Anyone behaving disrespectfully will be asked to leave without a refund.

BENEFICIARIES

100% of all proceeds from this event go to Washington Women In Need (WWIN). WWIN believes that a woman has the wisdom and freedom to make her own choices and design her own future. Given the opportunity, every woman can inspire positive change for herself, her family, and her community. They provide education and healthcare grants to deserving women in our community.

All clothing, accessories and cosmetics left over after the DRES Swap will be donated directly to Goodwill of Seattle. Their mission is to provide job training and education programs to help people find and keep good jobs, which is funded by their retail stores. Last year they provided services to over 11,500 people, and more than 1,900 were placed into jobs.
