In 2014 we jumped at an opportunity to double the size of the store by knocking through and the store today falls 30m down the street from the corner of Gertrude St. and Gore St. The space is always changing, part store, part gallery, part showroom, presenting the work of the studio and enabling collaborations with exciting brands, artists, Indigenous Arts Centres… Their presence energises us and the space. A dynamic calendar of artist talks and exhibitions sets the store as the accessible creative counterpoint to
Gertrude Street has long been Melbourne’s home for artists, edgy galleries, lively bars and clubs. Today it’s still an artist’s street but has grown to embrace independent fashion and design as well as cutting edge cafe’s and restaurants. It’s now a thriving inner city hub beloved by locals, interstate and international visitors alike.
The first owners of the Fitzroy area were the Woiworung. Fitzroy became Melbourne’s first suburb and smallest municipality, when it was separated from the City of Melbourne in 1858. Dispossessed of their lands, Indigenous groups began to gravitate to Fitzroy, and in particular Gertrude Street, where they stayed and made their own. Later, Southern European, Middle Eastern and Asian immigrants have all used Fitzroy as a staging post on their journey to the suburbs. Today Fitzroy is still the most multi-cultural of Melbourne’s inner city suburbs.
