"Be good. Be green. Be glam!"
Raised on hand-me-downs and forever fashionable, Suzanne Agasi believes that anyone can look like a million bucks with personal creativity and little cash. Suzanne is a natural host and is passionate about sharing. In 1994, she began hosting small Clothing Swap gatherings for friends in her San Francisco studio apartment. Her swap parties grew exponentially and became the inspiration for Clothing Swap, Inc. Today her swaps average 150-200 swappers and have been featured on the Today Show and in The New York Times, Time Magazine and other international news.
Named the "It Girl" of Clothing Swaps
Suzanne has produced over 225 Clothing Swap events coast to coast. The 2010 Swap America Tour has brought elegant Diva Eve Clothing Swap® events to New York City, Los Angeles, Denver, Sacramento, San Francisco and all over the Bay Area.
"Fun" in Fundraising
The mission of Clothing Swap® is responsibility through creatively refreshing social experiences. Suzanne's goal in life is to put the word "fun" in fundraising by creating unique philanthropic events such as Clothing Swaps®, ArtHip Art Auctions, Fashion Shows and Hottie Auctio®. As we share eco-chic Clothing Swap experiences to help others, our events have resulted in (literally) tons of clothing and shoes donated to women in need, family and homeless shelters and hurricane relief. She has personally raised $120,000 for AIDS humanitarian causes, women's cardiovascular health, breast cancer research, toy drives, as well as local homeless and abused women shelters.
During these tough economic times, Suzanne declares:
"When the going gets TOUGH, the smart go SWAPPING!"
