It’s swap till you drop

Have your say

A “FASHION-swapping phenomenon” is set to hit the Capital thanks to the efforts of a young entrepreneur.

Jema MacGregor, 25, who now lives in the city, has held several fashion-swapping events in her native Inverness and is set to bring the eco-fashion trend to the Voodoo Rooms on Saturday, from noon to 2pm.

Jema said: “I know that clothes swapping is getting really popular overseas and I saw this as an excellent opportunity to bring this to Scotland.

“We throw away 1.2 million tonnes of clothing every year in the UK, and I hope that ‘I Heart Swapping’ will help to show the fantastic things that can be done with second-hand clothes.

“I’m also pleased to be in partnership with Cancer Research UK, as all leftover items will be donated to help raise funds for a great cause.”
