The latest craze sweeping the country is ethical, eco-fabulous, social and fun.
Welcome to the future of fashion.
Swishing refers to swapping an item or items of clothing or shoes or an accessory with friends or acquaintances. Individuals must willingly give an item to participate in the transaction, once they have given an item they are free to choose something of interest from what others have offered.
The value of the items does not come into the equation - swappers do not necessarily get an item of equal value, and they are free to choose anything that the other person if offering, without having to pay. Swishing is now being more widely practised throughout the world, and has evolved to include other items such as books and furniture.
Not only do people hold 'swishing parties' either as a charity event or simply for the enjoyment of it - while recycling and saving money at the same time - but also there are several websites that have online swishes taking place.
