Salvos Stores launched its on-trend Street Boutique at Maylands Salvos Stores (a north-eastern suburb of Perth) last month.
Salvos Street Boutique is the idea of eco-stylist and Salvos Stores brand ambassador, Faye De Lanty.
Based in Sydney, Ms De Lanty launched the first Salvos Street Boutique in Darlinghurst 18 months ago. The Street Boutique uses upcycled materials in its fit-out, with white-washed palettes as the backdrop for the racks and rails and stocks a carefully curated collection of on-trend secondhand pieces.
‘It’s all very wearable and eco-chic. There’s lots of spring neutrals, nude colours, good denim, caramels, whites and black—pretty much everything you’d see in fashion on the high street in places like Zara and Top Shop,’ Ms De Lanty told Broadsheet Perth.
Salvos Stores WA regional manager Sean Burgess said the concept allows customers to be stylish on a budget.
‘The Street Boutique will be maintained by our team at Maylands who will hand pick on-trend pieces,’ he said.
‘We are looking forward to working with Faye on this project, and are excited to add the boutique to the already fantastic Maylands Salvos Stores.’
Selling pre-loved goods donated by the public, Salvos Stores raise funding for The Salvation Army’s work. Last year, Salvos Stores provided $21 million to Salvation Army community programs, including providing $2.5 million worth of goods free of charge to those most in need.
