Time to start clearing out your closet: the Body Revolution called, and it wants you to attend a Pop-Up Clothing Swap this weekend.

Never been to a clothing swap? The basic idea is this: Go through your wardrobe and pull out the gently-used clothes you never wear these days—you know, the clothes you're always surprised to see Buffalo Exchange pass on. Bring 'em to the exchange, go through somebody else's former favorites and come home with a bunch of new-to-you goodies. 

Typically, clothing swaps are events organized between friends. The Body Revolution is taking it to the next level.

For starters, they're emphasizing inclusivity: clothing of any size or style, and the event is open to all genders. 

In addition to whatever clothes people bring to swap, local designers and retailers will be hanging out in a Pop-Up Shop. Among them will be Erin Cox of Southwestern Belle Alterations & Design and Elizabeth Denneau of Candy Strike—our first and second place 2015 Best of Tucson finalists for Best Local Designer. 

Cox is bringing something different to the mix—live alterations.

"That way, if you find something that doesn't quite fit, you can make some quick adjustments and still take it home," says Erin Jaye, one of the people leading the Body Revolution in Tucson. 

The people behind Drewbees (your new favorite chapstick, trust me) and Noel's Restoratives are also scheduled to be there. 

The event is taking place at Fluxx's new home (690 E 19th Street, Suite 130) this Sunday, March 6 from noon to 4 p.m.  Admission is $10 for those who bring clothing to swap, $20 for those who don't. The event serves as a fundraiser for the Body Revolution Conference, tentatively planned for the Fall.  

For those who want to clear out their closets and skip the event, clothing donations are being accepted in advance—they're especially in need of masculine clothing. Email erin@erinjaye.com or message Fluxx Studio & Gallery on Facebook to set up a donation.
