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.
The Autumn Melbourne Frock Swap, Melbourne's biggest women's secondhand fashion market in the West, opens from 10am to 4pm, on Sunday 28 May 2017. Pop it in your calendar, so you don't miss the opportunity to fill your winter wardrobes for a bargain price.
