"One should either be a work of art or wear a work of art" – Oscar Wilde
Design A Space!
It is widely recognised that Melbourne is Australia's creative capital, so suitably it hosts the world's first space for independent fashion designers to exhibit their work in a retail environment. This is Design A Space - the designer space. Developed in 2006 by Bec and Chris Lutz, this innovative retail store is constantly changing with fresh products from new Australian designers where each designer brings their own unique flavour to this delectable shop.
Design A Space seems to pay tribute to the originality of fashion that many of Melbourne's locals are celebrated for by defying conventional retail products. It recognises fashion as art and the importance of individuality in what you wear rather than conforming to whatever is in fashion in the heat of the moment. All the pieces are original and will stay classic and wearable for years. They sell products for men, women and children that ranges from clothing to jewellery to scented candles and accessories at affordable prices.
"Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society" – Mark Twain
[ADVERT]Design can be attributed to art; fashion design in particular can be an expression of modern art, and consequently choosing what you wear can influence how you are perceived by others. Design A Space seems to take this on board as they sell wearable, creative clothes for creative people that will ensure you look your best no matter what the occasion.
Visiting Design A Space is a necessity in order to flourish your style, at least to seek inspiration if not to make a purchase. By purchasing their products, you'll be supporting the Australian fashion design industry. So next time you're sipping on your Fitzroy coffee or digesting your delicious Degraves de-pasta or shuffling down Chapel Street, step into Design A Space for a unique shopping experience.
