‘Style is a very simple way of saying complicated things.’
– Jean Cocteau “Le Secret Professional”
SWAP is an interactive documentary multi-media essay geared to educate and empower the everyday consumer towards mindful clothing consumption.
Using the filmmaker’s journey of interviews with economists, artists, bloggers, designers and activists, she deconstructs the sustainable fashion movement from her own perspective as clothing enthusiast, consumer and third wave feminist with poetic text, video and audio interviews.
One long term goal for this project is to extend the platform to vintage enthusiasts, swappers and sustainable fashion designers that will allow for transparent discussions online and at events around the country about the environmental and labor rights issues intrinsic to current modes of textile & clothing production & the other goal is to create apps for consumers to manage their own wardrobes & utilize second hand & clothing swaps in their local regions.
