Event:
A fun-filled day of fashion, shopping, workshops & food

Bunjil Place is proudly presenting Style Swap, as part of the 2019 Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival.

Style Swap is set to be a fun-filled day of fashion, focusing on sustainable and ethical fashion production.

All are welcome to take part in this FREE community event. The festivities will kick off at 10am at Bunjil Place Plaza and throughout the day, fashionistas can enjoy a Clothing Swap Meet, attend a Panel Discussion, sign up for engaging Workshops, view Styling Demonstrations, be pampered at the Wellness Bar, peruse Market Stalls and tuck into Food truck favourites.

The Clothing Swap Meet will run from 10am to 2pm and participants are invited to drop off their pre-loved garments and accessories in exchange for tokens. The tokens can then be used to 'purchase' items donated by other members of the swap meet. Each piece of clothing or accessory is worth one token.
