Description

Never got a chance to wear that special dress that's now collecting dust? Looking for some cute and kistchy pieces to add to your fall wardrobe? Tryna commune with some plus size cuties over cookies, tea and fat femme fashion? Come to a plus size only clothing swap at The Den in Anacostia Arts Center!

Participating in a clothing swap is an eco-friendly way to freshen up your wardrobe and support local black-owned businesses. Clothes swaps are a dime a dozen, but often times we aren't represented in all our full figured glory-On Sept 23rd, that all changes. In the words of the most exalted younger Knowles sibling Solange, this ish is for us.

How it’ll go down:

Bring yourself, and a couple of friends
Bring a bag, some clothes and accessories (in good condition) that can go to a good home and receive one swap ticket per item*.
Come check out what other people brought.
Take what fits your fancy & the leftover items will be donated to Casa Ruby, a shelter and community center for LGBTQIA people experiencing homelessness in D.C.

Admission is a suggested donation of $5 -15 to support the venue and organizers! #SupportBlackWomen

After you'v perused all the goods, take your new swag, new friends and new lewks to Art-drenaline Cafe next door for mimosas!

Nitty Gritty:
Casua attire = 1 swap ticket
Formal attire = 2 swap tickets
Bring an items sizes 24 and above and get a bonus swap ticket.

Sizes 14 or 1X, all shoe sizes (wide width preferred), and accessories are accepted.
Please only bring clean gently worn clothing in good condition, no holes, stains, or rips.
Not able to bring an item? Based on inventory extra swap tickets will be sold at the door.

So get to digging into that bag of stuff you've been meaning to take to the Buffalo Exchange (Trust us, we know which bag. We all got one.) and put together some fierce fashion plates for us, babe! Fat Femme-Landia is waiting for all the goodies in your closet that can go to a good home.

This event is an intentional fat affirming space for people sizes 14+ of all genders. We will not accept any fatphobia, body-shaming, or transphobia and will gladly ask you to leave if you are making others uncomfortable. If you have questions or concerns about whether this event is for you please contact the organizer.
