I missed out on going to The Big Schwop this weekend. If you want to know how it went, visit Natelle here who walked away with some fabulous things. I didn't completely miss out however as I recently did a fun dress swap with with Vicci. I think this is a great idea, especially if you're concerned about the sustainability of clothing. First and foremost, the fashion industry is about profit. Where before designers only had to put out two seasons (fall/winter and spring/summer) some quick-minded marketing nut decided there was more money to be bled out of consumers and so resort and pre-fall as "seasons" were born. It's not all the higher-ups fault, however. We, as consumers, lap it up. More clothes, more trends, and ever shorter attention spans. We're like magpies converging on the latest, shiniest thing that catches our eye, swooping away without a care as soon as something sparkly and new comes into vision.
