Closing weekend: State of Fashion’s Last Sunday

Join the last day State of Fashion!

Sunday 22 July is your very last chance to visit the exhibition State of Fashion | searching for the new luxury!

Take part in free guided tours or join and swap left-over clothing items from your closet with others from 11:00 until 17:00 in our Whataboutery space. In our lush garden, you can enjoy drinks, snacks and live music from Het Florieke de Geus Trio and Elastic Time Travellers during the whole afternoon. In our closing weekend, we offer a special discount: entrance tickets for the exhibition are on sale for only €7,50 per person. On Sunday at 18:00, the doors of our exhibition will close indefinitely.

On Saturday 21 July and Sunday 22 July, the State of Fashion Closing Weekend will take place. Our quest for the new luxury is coming to a conclusion. With this packed program we are closing off seven weeks of expos and events in Arnhem with a bang.

How does the clothing swap work?

Participating in the clothes swap is completely free of charge. Take a minimum of 3 items and a maximum of 7 items along. Hand in these items when you get in. The people at the front desk will take all the items from you and check them out. Then your clothing will enter the market. Inchange for your garments, you will receive a number of buttons. They are your tokens to select something cool at the market.

Accessories = worth 1 button
Garments = worth 2 buttons
Shoes & jackets = worth 3 buttons

Have you found something you like?
Hand in your buttons at ‘the register’ and you’re all set to take your items home.

Clothing needs to be clean and undamaged. Kind of clothing: Anything from clothing, shoes and jewels to accessories like hats, scarfs, belts and bags!
