Clothes swapping, or 'swishing' to those in the know, is a growing trend among fashionistas who want to brighten up their wardrobe without flashing their hard-earned cash. The concept is that one girl's trash is another girl's treasure, and it works like this; take along the sale purchase that wasn't quite 'you'; the jeans you didn't manage to diet into and the Christmas dress that was so not your colour on reflection. Swap them for the same number of items, et voila! A clutch of new clothes to play with. It's the economista's shopping spree.
London Frock Exchange is a swish with a glamorous twist. Participants are treated to a glass of bubbly while they browse the offerings and InStyle.co.uk's Pat McNulty and Kat Webster will be on hand dishing out styling tips to ensure everyone leaves with some fresh new ways to style their look incorporating their new finds.
