Get your indie look from Retro World
If your dress style draws from last century's obsolete fashion, head over to the Retro World Collective pop-up store for a rummage through an eclectic range of vintage dresses, shirts, jeans, boots, bags, belts, and hats.

Owner/manager Kirstin, was propelled into starting up the business after losing her job during the Covid pandemic. Aside from creating a job for herself, Kirstin said she wanted to create a safe space for people to have freedom to assemble their unique, sometimes wacky, wardrobe or work on costume building.

Retro World Collective is currently located at the Myer Centre in Queen Street Mall.
