VINTAGE and modern styles will come together when the Salvation Army launches a Street Boutique at its O’Connor store on Tuesday.

Store manager Jake Eddy said the idea behind the boutique was to recreate current and timeless fashion trends at op-shop prices while encouraging eco-sustainability.

“It’s fashion which considers its footprint on people and the planet, which also never goes out of style,” he said.

“The clothing is sourced entirely by donations.”

Mr Eddy said he believed the boutique would appeal to fashion-conscious and budget savvy people.

“All profits go towards running Salvation Army programs, which help the less fortunate,” he said.

“It’s important for social media influencers to spread the word of environmentally conscious fashion, which reduces our carbon footprint on the environment.”
