There’s really nothing better than a good thrifted find. It’s a beautiful feeling to find yourself clutching a new (to you) treasure, wondering why/how on earth its previous owner could have let it go.
But that’s the thing. Fashion moves at a rapid pace, and as the saying goes, “one gal’s trash…”–you know the drill.
Should you be in L.A. this Thursday evening, the gang here in NYC highly envy your opportunity to check out the GFX–Global Fashion Exchange— where entry is granted upon bringing at least one item of gently worn clothing that just isn’t doing it for you anymore.
Not only could you wind up with a find so good you can hardly believe it, but in fact, recycling fashion is one good thing we can do for the environment.
The event is hosted in collaboration with H&M, Ford Motor Company, the Danish Fashion Institute and InTandem Creatives and aims to combat the terrifying statistics about our society’s continual waste of textiles. In 2010 alone, an estimated $250 million worth of textiles were sent to landfills.
Check it out on Thursday, November 20th, from 4-8 PM, Hollywood & Highland.
