Art Of Swishing
Swishing? A swish? A swisher? The swisherati? The swishset?! Just what are we on about?! Well, it’s a little thing that could have a big impact, it’s fun and productive and could possibly get you a new wardrobe as well as help the environment.
It’s called swishing, and it rocks!
Swishing happens when a group of people get together with clothes they’ve either never worn or lost interest in. You know, that pair of jeans that seemed to fit well in the store’s mirror, but at home it’s a different story. The little black dress whose potential spectator cancelled at the last minute.

The Harry Potter premiere last week marked the end of an era for J.K Rowling. We’ve loved watching the stars grow up, with Emma Watson being a Global Cool favourite and Daniel Radcliffe choosing an eco-friendly car. The books and movies have taught us not to drive our cars by hopping on a broomstick instead, to reuse and recycle by magically repairing everything and to always go organic especially in Snape’s potions class. However, we know that it’s not that easy for us muggles to hop on a broomstick so here are our tips on how to be like Harry for the greener good…Read more
