For the second time around, the big shwop is coming to town, women from the Capital are warming up their wardrobes for the said event. The Big Shwop – Summer Special is being held in Wellington on Saturday November 29 at the Southern Cross.
According to Co-organizer Inga Boyd, The aim of the Big Shwop – summer Special is to create a fashion store without using money.
Organizers were overwhelmed by the fantastic response to the idea ,and after receiving more than twice the expected number the first time around, the venue space has been expanded to cater for a much larger 300 keen shwoopers.
The Event is still free and open to the community but due to its growing popularity shwoppers will now need to pre-register on line at the events website – http://thebigshwop.co.nz. to secure their place on the day.
“We were completely blown away by how many people turned up to Wellington ‘s first Big Shwop” says event organiser Sarah Hopkins. “It was just fantastic to see how open women were to this new concept, so immediately started putting plans in place for an even bigger ,better one”.
The Organizers are very excited about the future growth of the concept, and talks are already in place for further “Big Shwop” events in the Wellington for early 2009. The hope is to also expand the idea to include mens and children clothes and hold similar events in other parts of the country.
So see you at southern cross!!!
