Visa, the credit card company, is no longer just about producing a plastic card to assist you in all your luxury shopping. The company has opened a temporary "swap shop" in London where customers can trade in their old clothing and accessories for other secondhand goods. Visaswap.com is the editorially driven site that provides comments from fashion editors, advice on trends, hot items to swap and buying secondhand merchandise.
Although us non-Londoners won't get as much use out of the site and the swap shop, it is still worth looking through to find out more about the revolutionary project and TRAID, a charity committed to protecting the environment and reducing world poverty by recycling. Plus, the tips from front row fashion experts are fun. I love the one about using a skinny belt to avoid looking like a potato sack!
