Those in poverty or without a home don’t enjoy the same privileges as everyone else — while the average US consumer spends nearly USD 2,000 on fashion items each year, the poor can barely afford a coat for the winter months. In South Africa, social inequality means that more than half of children live in poverty despite it being the wealthiest nation in the continent. Giving homeless people the same dignity afforded to paying customers, The Street Store is a rent-free temporary store that provides poor neighborhoods with free clothes and fashion advice.
