Event:
The biggest preloved fashion market in the West is back
Hey Melbourne fashionistas - it's almost time to get your Frock Swap on again with the biggest second-hand fashion market in the west happening on Sunday 28 May.

Melbourne Frock Swaps, held at the historic Seaworks maritime boat shed in Williamstown, are not actually clothes swapping events but are humongous indoor markets selling pre-loved, retro and vintage fashion and accessories.

This is a market that invites Melbourne fashionistas to offload their wardrobes, once every season. You know the drill, - when you buy fashion in the sale but you never get around to wear it, or you accept defeat and realise you won't fit back into your amazing pre-baby clothes. Fashion lovers just like you and I, clear out their closets filled with labels you know and love and sell them at the Melbourne Frock Swap.

Expect quality as well as quantity as the event attracts some 70 stallholders selling almost-new to pre-loved fashion for a fraction of what you'd expect to buy new. You don't need to buy completely blind and hope for the best with your fashion fittings because there are plenty of pop-up changing rooms on site for you to try before you buy.

Melbourne Frock Swap is a women's only fashion market, however just because you can't buy threads for your kids or men folk, doesn't mean they can't come along for the fun!

As well as fashion stalls, you'll find food vans and a coffee cart to keep you refuelled. Mr Burger and handmade pizzas will be on the menu this May.

The historic Seaworks boat shed is an easy drive from the Williamstown off ramp on the Westgate (plenty of car parking available), or a 5-minute stroll from the Williamstown train station.

The fashion market is completely indoors and undercover, so you don't need to worry about the cooler Melbourne weather. The venue is completely pram and wheelchair friendly, too.
