Youth charity vInspired hosts an eco fashion and music party aimed at raising awareness of clothing landfill with young Londoners.
This free party is aimed at young people in London who are bored with their wardrobes and want a fresh update, but without the cost. vInspired is inviting anyone with swapable clothes to come along to the event and take home something that is new to them but unwanted by someone else. DJs will be spinning tunes all afternoon and some of London's rising fashion talent will be coming along to customise outfits. There will also be scouts from a top London model agency.
The Car Boot Disco launches vInspired's Get Trashed campaign to save over 10,000 clothes from landfill before the end of the year. It will create a tribe of young people dedicated to re-using, recycling and having fun while looking good at the same time. Young people will feel part of a movement, putting the issue of waste front of mind – empowering them to run their own events and spread the message via the Do Something channels, social media and word-of-mouth.
Guests are required to bring 2-5 items to swap. These must be washed, of a good enough quality they'd be happy to wear themselves.
No swimwear, underwear or jewellery will be accepted.
