Clothes Swap Information


• Welcome to bring office wear suitable for spring

• Make sure to bring clean clothes of quality rather than quantity that you are happy to swap

• Drop-off is possible from February 21 – March 22 in the reception at Edge Olympic, from Monday to Friday between 08:00-18:00

• We strongly encourage you to drop your clothes in advance. However, if you do not have the possibility to drop off your clothes prior to the event, you may bring them on the event day March 23, from 17:00. The official event start time is 18:00.

• When you drop off clothes you will get tickets to “buy” clothes at the market.

• Clothes that are not swapped will be given to the charity Dress for Success.

About Dress for Success

Dress for Success gives people who need it a set of appropriate and representative clothing free of charge. Dress for Success is a global organization, founded and run by volunteers, that helps both low-income men and women get a free job application outfit. The mission of Dress for Success is to empower people to achieve economic independence, with a support network, professional attire, and the development of skills to function better in their work and personal lives.

Stylist Involvement Information


Welcome to ask stylist Silvia Cosma for recommendations about sustainable fashion and personal branding.
You can get advice on items from the clothes swap market, but you are also welcome to bring a few clothing items from home, that you would like to get advice on.
This way, we give new life to already produced clothes on multiple levels!

Did you know? The fashion industry alone is estimated to produce 10% of the total global greenhouse gas emissions.

At this event, we learn more about why conscious consumption is important and get to experience hands-on new ways of fashion, which are innovative, interactive, and fun!


This event is for Young Professional Members and your +1 guests, for Edge Olympic colleagues, and for the Swedish Chamber Network.

We are very much looking forward to this grand event together with fantastic collaboration partners and an engaged network!

Let us learn something new, have fun, and swap clothes!
