LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kicking off the Kentucky Derby by swapping clothes.

It's called "Don't Shop. Swap!"

The event was held Saturday afternoon on East Broadway.

It was all about finding a creative Derby outfit without buying anything new.

Instead, swap out your old clothes.

"You have the opportunity to come in. You bring 5 to 8 pieces. We give you tickets for those pieces. And you have the opportunity to shop this boutique that we've created inside this venue, just to see if there's anything that you liked or anything that you loved," Fitz Fitzgerald said. 

One organizer says she saw an event like this on a much smaller scale and it gave her the idea to do this for Derby.
