Most of us can't afford the prices attached to clothing on the catwalk at London Fashion Week but this week you could add some great pieces to your wardrobe for FREE. Celebrate the first London Fashion Week of 2013, by bringing along good quality items of clothing, shoes or accessories that you no longer wear to swap for other great clothing at the Hounslow Library Swishing Event.

Swishing is an fun eco-way to update your wardrobe without spending any money. Every person attending the event is required to bring in up to 10 items to be allowed to take something from the Swish. Items are then swished item for item, as you will be given a token for each item brought in which is then used to get new items.

The West London Waste Authority are hosting a swishing event at Hounslow Library in Hounslow on Saturday 16th Feb which is a free event.
