Vintage fashion is an alternative to the traditional ‘fast fashion’.

Kaitlyn Bullen, Blue Rinse Brand Manager said: “Our customers always talk about their desire to be more sustainable and ethical”.

As well as generally being cheaper, ‘vintage fashion’ is also a new way of wearing old clothes.

“Everyone is really into our recycle range and they really like that we’re taking clothes that would end up in a landfill and making something new out of them.”
