Designer clothes on a serious budget
Want free clothes? The nonprofit group Peers, whose mission is to teach regulators and regular folks about the sharing economy, launched PeersSwaps last week to capitalize on March's parade of Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Paris, and Milan. PeersSwaps are clothing exchanges that will take place online in partnership with swapping sites Yerdle and Swapdom, as well as in person at events in 50 cities around the world.
The social media angle: PeersSwaps attendees will photograph and blog their experiences with appropriate hashtags to bring the sharing economy some Fashion Week buzz.

From the runway to real life, Glass has sure come a long way in a year.
