We’ve all been there: The mad dash of a sample sale, grabbing anything just because it’s 70% off only to be left with a handful of clothes that just don’t work. Now they sit in your closet mocking you for your impulse purchase while taking up valuable real estate. You don’t want to donate them (they still have the tags on!) but the thought of posting it to a marketplace exhausts you. And forget consignment shops with their high fees, unpredictable sales and strict acceptance policies. So, why not swap those items for something you’ll actually use?

Enter ClosetDash to save the day! We make it easy for you to turn your perfectly good pieces into new-to-you fashions! For just $1, you can turn that barely worn Theory blazer into a new Alice + Olivia dress!

Founded by Jennifer Lee ‘08BUS, ClosetDash set out to find a fun, affordable and green way for women to be fashionable. The idea for ClosetDash came from Ms. Lee’s very successful promotional swap party events she hosted. What started as 30 person events turned into 100 person events with over 1,500 items being swapped per party!

Ms. Lee escaped from the world of Wall St by digging a hole under her desk during her very short water breaks into the A/C vents. After miles of dark tunnels and dust bunnies, with Bailey her Pomeranian as her guide, she emerged in Brooklyn and began her quest to spread the gospel of swapping! Armed with a BA from UC Berkeley and MBA from Columbia University, Jennifer is determined to have everyone see the amazing benefits of shopping and swapping preloved clothes!
