Trading clothes you never wear for something new and fabulous? Yes, please!
Clothes swapping is on the rise—and it’s easy to see why. Who doesn’t love getting new clothes at basically no cost? It’s a concept that just makes sense. You incur no debt, refresh your wardrobe, and gain a good feeling, knowing that you’re not adding to the landfill where so many donated clothes end up (at a startling rate, too: 10.5M tons/year in the US /￡140M worth/year in the UK).
Are you wondering about what sort of clothes or accessories you can find in a swapping platform like Swancy? We have analysed our users' digital wardrobes in order to understand what items they upload on the app.
Not surprisingly, we found that there are all sorts of apparel on Swancy: from designer bags to party dresses from high street brands.

We all go through changes as we grow up and so does Swancy. It’s been a year and a half since we launched the app - after spending another one developing it - so we thought it was time to get Swancy a more grown-up look.
In the last few months we have been working with Type Creative to develop a new brand identity for Swancy and we are happy with the new, more modern look we have created.
