A dream come true…my first time in Australia and I am discovering the trendy Melbourne shopping areas with my sister. Walking on Collins street on a warm summer day felt amazing but discovering artists on Gertrude street, like jewelry designer William Llewellyn Griffiths owner of Metal Couture was even more exciting. (I will show you what I got in my next post.) Loved the boutique CoseIpanema and their artistic approach to fashion. Aly Aitken’s sculptures are intriguing and I adored the rings from New Zealand designer and taxidermist, Julia de Ville. Day 2 will be about art. Stay tuned.

Melbourne Shopping- Cose Ipanema Boutique
I loved the stylish mix of Cose Ipanema and how they fused high-end fashion like Jean Paul Gaultier and Pauw with artistry. Sam (Hussein) the manager of the store showed their amazing collection.
