Fortitude Valley’s Practice Studio is a unique resource for both designer and buyer – one part store and one part workroom, it aims to bridge the gap between emerging makers and those seeking consciously made clothing. The Ann Street space houses a boutique showcasing pieces from emerging Australian designers, a fully equipped workroom and a clothing alteration and repair store. Every week shoppers can expect new limited runs of clothing and accessories, with showcased designers including the likes of Phoebe Paradise, Molly Younger, Mineral Tufts, Brief Sheet, Soft Stud and more. If you have a piece of clothing that could use a bit of TLC, bring it in to Practice Studio and let the alteration experts give it a new life. Up-and-coming designers can also utilise the space and machinery for production, experimentation and mentorship. The coming weeks and months will see the walls of Practice Studio given over to artwork made along similar thematic lines, with pieces fashioned from repurposed materials helping cement and reflect Practice Studio’s foundational ethos of sustainability.
