ReMode is where you come to learn how to keep your clothes in use for as long as possible through the 7R’s of Fashion.
The Marketplace shines the light on the #nonewclothes movement, with vendors focused on reuse, resale, repurposing, rental and repair.
The Swap is where you come to trade your unwanted clothes with others.
The Talks feature industry experts and influencers throughout the day to help you learn more about how to reduce your fashion footprint through what you buy and how you care for your clothes.

Vendor Applications are now closed
If you have applied to be a vendor, please be patient. We received many applications and will be reaching out to those who have been selected shortly. Stay tuned!
The most sustainable piece of clothing is the one already in your closet…or in someone else’s. We wear 20% of the clothes we own, 80% of the time. So if there are items that you know you won’t wear, or that don’t fit anymore, a clothing swap is the perfect way to share them with someone else, and find new pieces for yourself.
We swapped 1,200 items of clothing at ReMode 2023. This resulted in 600 kg of diverted textiles from landfills, and 1,600 kg of co2 saved.
How a clothing swap works
1) DROP OFF
Doing a Spring closet clean out? If you have clothes that are in good (used) condition, but just no longer match your style (or size), consider participating in our clothing swap! You can drop off up to 10 pieces.
**Stay tuned for info on advance drop off. If you are unable to make it in advance, you can bring your pieces with you on event day.
2) COLLECT A TICKET
For every piece we accept into the swap you will receive a ticket to ‘shop the swap’ – put 5 pieces in, get 5 new-to-you pieces out!
3) GO SHOPPING
Now, it’s the fun part. Explore the racks of items at ReMode and use your tickets to add some great new finds to your spring wardrobe!
It really is as easy as that.
* We will not be accepting undergarments, jewellery, or cultural/traditional pieces.
Stay tuned for a list of topics we’ll be addressing this year as well as the industry experts who will be joining us on stage to help share tips and tricks for keeping our clothes in use for as long as possible!
