Ethos: A curated selection of ethical fashion. Brands with integrity. Clothes to keep.
Aside from investing your hard earned cash in a beautiful and ethical collection, there are so many reasons to shop here! The Keep Boutique is involved with promoting eco-friendly awareness within the community by hosting an event called Sustainable Truths. This encourages conversations between guest speakers and audience as they attempt to explore the meaning and misnomers surrounding the term ‘sustainable’. The store tenders a wide collection of styles from vibrantly patterned garments to more neutral pieces. The Keep Boutique is hot with social media too, often posting pictures of carefully selected garments paired together to create some beautifully eye-catching outfits.
