Wedding season has approached us and although our invites may have increased most of our wallets have not. Of course you need to look fabulous for each event without committing the dreadful crime of repeated outfits.
Have no fear, Zoora has partnered with Swapaholics for their upcoming event, “Wedding Season Swap and Shop.”
The event will focus on swapping cocktail dresses, formal wear, and festive separates perfect for surviving wedding season. Not only will you be able to swap outfits, but you will also have your pick from Zoora’s 2012 Private Capsule Collection – four stunning silhouettes, each with customizable fit, hemline, color and details (like your choice of metallic tassel belts).
“We love working with The Swapaholics because they make new ways of approaching fashion easy, affordable, and fun. They have made swaps more accessible in the same way that we hope to make custom clothing more accessible,” says Aubrie Pagano, founder & CEO of Zoora.
The Zoora team will be in attendance armed with a seamstress on deck to take measurements and create live alterations for attendees who wish to purchase customized pieces from the capsule collection (pieces priced from $68-99). You can snag something altered just for you that no one else will have for under $100!
This is the first swap of its kind for Swapaholics dedicated to the wedding season. Previous swaps included a wide range of designers from Chloe, Chanel, Manolo Blahnik, Theory to ASOS, Banana Republic and Zara, to name a few.
Come swap a dress from an immense array of choices and designers or get your own customized piece from Zoora and get ready to face the wedding season head on dressed fabulously from head to toe.
About “Wedding Swap and Shop”
The event will be held on June 20, 2012, in the courtyard and lounge at 40Berkeley, in Boston’s historic South End. Admission for each monthly clothing swap is $10, with advance tickets available online at WeddingSwap.Eventbrite.com, which includes swapping, bubbly (for those 21+ with proper ID) from Boston’s own 90+ Cellars, and desserts. For June’s event, each attendee is asked to bring one to two dresses or formal ensembles plus three or four cocktail-appropriate pairs of shoes, accessories, pieces of jewelry, or handbags (3-5 items total).
