FULL SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
6 to 7 pm
Registration & clothing donation opens on the 11th floor. Drop off your bag of like-new clothing, accessories, shoes & jewelry with us so we can sort them and add them to the pop-up swap.
Then grab a Magner's, mingle & tweet with your friends!
6 to 7:45 pm
Sip on complimentary beverages from Magners Irish Cider while networking & tweeting with local fashion bloggers, editors, designers, social media mavens & startups (11th floor). Design & raffle contests begin in the Fashion Startup Lounge. (10th floor)
8 pm SHARP!
The clothing swap begins on the main floor (10th floor) and it's a mad dash
to find the best items from other Bostonians' closets. When the doors open, it's a free-for-all
to get the good stuff, and everything is first come, first served!
8:30 to 9 pm
"Shop" our Fashion Startup Lounge, with demonstrations from OpenRunway.com, Spreedia.com, 9Tailors.com, and StyleSha.re — four Boston-based fashion startups founded by women — while noshing on complimentary snacks from our food sponsors. (10th floor)
9 to 10 pm
Our Swap Style runway show begins! Local fashion bloggers and editors will be rocking outfits created completely on-site during the night from clothing & accessories found at the Swap — followed by an unveiling of the new Swap.com website and a few words from each of our participating sponsors. (10th and 11th floors)
