! (This time there will be no swapping with points, if you still have Overlap points in your possession, save them for next time when we organise another clothes swap).

How can we consume fashion differently?
During the opportunity to borrow clothes, there will also be demonstrations by other makers, artists and consultants.

On Tuesday evening 18 October you can watch the slow-fashion film: ‘Making A Pair Of Jeans’ by Paul Kruize and the film ‘Desert of No Time’ by Rob Nijland and Remco Mikkers at 8 pm in the Vestzak Theater in Enschede. More info and book free tickets: Click here

Want to change your outfit? Here's how it works:
Bring clothes (adults) that are fashionable, whole, clean and ironed (max 5 pieces). The higher the quality and 'fashionability', the more points you score. You can use these points to choose try-out clothes. If there are any points left after the swap, you get a points card for the next swap. No points? You can also buy clothes, or pay extra if there are not enough points. We treat and present the clothes with care. Therefore we ask a small service fee of €2.00 per person per swap (preferably cash).

Opening hours:
Friday 22 July from 14:00 – 20:00
Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 – 18:00
Free entrance.
