GPO pop up shopAugust 21, 2011
Wow … we did it!
If you’re in Melbourne, do come and visit our new home for the next 5 weeks in the city’s GPO building!
To say we’re “excited” to be here would be an understatement! “Beside-ourselves” would be more fitting.
We had a few store locations on the list of possibilities, but I really had my heart set on the GPO space. So, you can imagine there was quite a bit of squawking going on when the approval came through.
Having a real life shop next to brands that rule the fashion roost is a pretty good retail starting point for us! We’re upstairs with Akira, Belinda, Zimmerman, Lisa Ho, Life with Bird, Manning Cartel, Tim O’Connor … and downstairs my all time favourite store, Dinosaur Designs has just opened up. Along with Skin & Threads, Acne, Sass & Bide, Willow, Fleur Wood, Fat, Alpha 60 … the list goes on.
So - even if you don’t need shoes, you should just get your toots into the GPO for all the other fashion goodness they’re dishing up. (But do come and say hello to us whilst you’re here).
