Seven charities have teamed up with 10 bloggers to show how you can be fashion conscious while also supporting the community.

As part of Perth Fashion Festival, 30 Days of Restyle will feature bloggers recording their fashion creations using recycled clothes and accessories from Save the Children, Anglicare, DrugARM, Good Samaritans, The Salvation Army, The Red Cross and St Vincent de Paul.

The daily blog updates during August from Vintage Valley, Gin in a Teacup, Love thy Muse, Blonde Suburbia, Hug Sized, Peanut Moonbeam Knickers, Le Fanciulle, Sass & Spice, Love from Shell and Bonnie Friday will aim to encourage people to visit charities to buy stylish vintage pieces without the hefty price tag.

"We believe that it will inspire people to take a fresh look at op-shopping as an alternative way to achieve stylish looks for less while also encouraging people to support the community by volunteering their time with the charities involved," Save the Children state manager David Bright said.

WA Fashion Awards best blogger Bonnie Doran, of Bonnie Friday, said she was passionate about 30 Days of Restyle because fashion and bloggers often were blamed for encouraging "disposable consumerism and a fad mentality".

"Restyle proves that fashion can be recyclable and that style is first and foremost about individuality and confidence," Doran said.

"I'm so excited to be involved with the project this year, to prove that style doesn't necessarily flow from the latest trends, and that fashion can be both inexpensive and eco-friendly."

Perth Fashion Festival will be held September 19 to 25.
