Come along to the Stop the Traffik Fashion Exchange

Where else can you swap, learn and buy as well as play a part in making fashion free from human trafficking.

Stop the Traffik is global movement of activists around the world who passionately give their time and energy to build resilient communities and prevent human trafficking. With the aim to education and create an awareness and understanding of people trafficking. They also engage with those who have the power to minimise the trafficking of people and campaign to seek to build a traffic-free world.

The way the fashion exchange works, is to bring clothes to swap and exchange these for other clothes. For every item you bring, you will receive a token to choose an item.

Please note, this is only for women's fashion and accessories only.
