A FASHION show encouraging people to swap or donate clothing to avoid landfill will take place in Basingstoke next month.

The fashion show at the Basingstoke Community Wardrobe, set up by Viables Community Association, will see people of all ages and sizes walking the runway in both casual and formal wear on March 2 to support the community project.

The wardrobe was set up by the community association to provide a facility for anyone in the community to swap or donate clothing to help keep them affordable and stop unwanted clothes from entering landfill.

The wardrobe, which is based at the Roger Morris Community Centre in Eastrop, is open on weekdays from 10am to 12pm, with a range of donated clothes that can be swapped or sold from 50p.

The fashion show, which will also take place at the community centre, follows a previous event last November which organisers called a “success”.

It will run from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, with entrance free of charge as well as an opportunity to browse the wardrobe’s racks of clothes, and a range of prom dresses available at £10.

The owners of the Basingstoke Community Wardrobe said: “Please help us make a difference to those in the community by supporting the wardrobe.

“Alone we can do our little bit; together we can do so much! We hope this event will be just as successful as the last.”

Tickets for the event are available at trybooking.com/uk/DCQX. Alternatively, to volunteer at the community wardrobe, email office@viables.org.uk
