The Salvation Army’s “Style Army” is coming! The Salvos Street Boutique will be popping up on Wednesday 26th August from 9am at Charlestown Square Shopping Centre to showcase the vintage and current recycled fashion trends that you can find at your local Salvos Store. An event perfect for the fashion savvy, budget conscious consumer!
The Style Army encourages consumers to shop in their local Salvos Store and ‘Reinvent Fashion’ that is unique and affordable, to feel better by helping The Salvos continue their great work in the community, and to help the environment through purchasing recycled fashion. During National Op Shop Week The Salvos will be bringing the store to you with the Salvos Street Boutique and a fashion show to Charlestown.
Salvos Stores General Manager Neville Barrett said, “Salvos Stores have been helping struggling families and individuals for over 125 years, and have raised millions of dollars to support The Salvation Army. Pre-loved and recycled furniture, clothing and goods are donated to the stores and then sold at reasonable and fair prices. All profits from these sales go towards running vital Salvation Army programs which assist the less fortunate. Goods are also distributed free of charge to those in need through The Salvation Army’s network of Community Service Centres. By donating to and shopping at Salvos Stores the community is recycling and reducing landfill. This is of great benefit to our environment.
Faye De Lanty, TV fashion commentator, eco/op shop fashion blogger and brand ambassador for the Salvos Stores, will be available to give styling tips and advice throughout the day! Visitors can also pick up a copy of this year’s Salvos Stores The Style Army mini mag being released for National Op Shop Week, guest styled and edited by former glossy magazine editor and fashion icon Kirstie Clements.
