IPSWICH ladies can refresh their wardrobes and steal each other's style at a frock swap tonight.

The inaugural Cactus Espresso Bar and Cultiver Frock Swap is a great opportunity to exchange old clothing for good quality 'new' items, organiser Aeron Parker said.

"My friends and I have always wanted to do a clothes swap, and we thought opening up to everyone would make it more fun," Ms Parker said.

"Women can bring in up to five items of good-quality clothing - skirts, pants, blouses or dresses - and can exchange them for tokens that they can use to purchase 'new' clothes.

"It's a good way to get rid of clothes that you've grown out of, that are the wrong size, or that just aren't your style anymore."

Ms Parker said the Frock Swap had an eco-conscious message and would help to reduce waste.

"Swapping can be fun and if there are any leftovers they'll be donated to charity, so everybody wins," she said.

Clothes swapping events have proven successful in Brisbane, and Ms Parker is hopeful the trend will catch on in Ipswich.

"Depending on the response, we might try to organise a swap every three months or so," she said.

"People who have seen the posters and come in to talk to me have been really receptive so far."

Tickets to the swap cost $8 and can be purchased from Cultiver, 126 Brisbane St, or at the door of the Cactus Espresso Bar event.

Patrons can bring up to five items to swap and will receive a token for each item they bring.

The swap starts at 5.30pm.
