Swapping is the new shopping

For his work in advancing and promoting sustainable fashion in Singapore and beyond.
Raye Padit always dreamed of being a fashion designer, that is until he discovered how polluting and destructive the fashion industry is. He had an ah ha moment when he asked himself if he wanted to be part of the solution or part of the problem. This kick started his journey on the road to sustainability, which has lead him to co-found Connected Threads Asia, advancing and promoting sustainable fashion in Asia, and now Swapaholic. His mission is to bringing awareness around the social and environmental impacts of fast fashion, while offering a sustainable, easy and fun solution through clothes swapping.
