Fashionistas have long been in the know about the gorgeous Practice Studio but now that the design studio has moved to bigger digs, it’s only a matter of time before the rest of Brisbane clues in.
The Valley boutique spread its wings in January and moved into a new space at 705 Ann St, relaunching as a retail store, design studio, co-working space and gallery.
At its heart, Practice Studio is still a beautifully curated fashion boutique housing Brisbane and Australian labels, all with sustainability and ethical practice at their core.
The unique and creative space aims to reconnect customers with the value of a garment’s production and design process.
The new space, which is three times larger than its original Winn Lane shop, reveals more of what goes on behind-the-scenes by inviting designers and artists to rent a Maker Space within the studio and publicly explore their creative practice.
When customers step inside, they’ll experience a dual sensation of traditional retail shopping, but with the added spice of seeing designers make clothes first-hand.
The new model is geared towards supporting Brisbane’s fashion community by stocking local labels, nurturing emerging designers and encouraging the production of seasonless collections, limited edition art-fashion pieces and short runs of garments and accessories.
Practice Studio also offers alterations and repairs for both new and loved clothing. Stocked brands include Katalyst, Maddison Goodridge, Marut, Bulley Bulley, Lou Young, Molly Younger and Jess Blak.
