Would you wear this dress?

To you it looks like tatty old jumble, but to stylish folk it looks like their next favourite outfit in waiting. Just how do the cool young popsters spot what secondhand stuff is hot to trot and what’s not? Maria Kaski snapped a bevvy of Chicsters at East London’s Favela Chic in hot swap mode.
Maria writes: Attendees at this month’s Swap-A-Rama event, armed with at least one item of clothing to swap, paid £3 to adorn themselves with cast-offs fit to reside in even the most demanding fashionista’s wardrobe.
Resident DJs played remixes of old Motown classic hits, providing the perfect backdrop for a night of chaotic vintage glamour. Even the boys couldn’t help but get involved!
