Visage ‘n’ Vice Boutique, Johnson St, Fitzroy

July 14, 2010

I’m convinced that Fitzroy is on a Leyline.  Or Vlad Tepes corpse is buried there.  Or maybe it’s  because it’s on a bat flight path?  whatever the reason… Fitzroy is the Little Carfax of Melbourne, with yet another gothic boutique opening its doors. This one is interesting in that it is specialising in accessories as much as clothing, from what i can tell, and is emphasising local designers, including a few strutting their stuff at the yearly Circa Nocturna parade.

But it doesn’t end there: the boutique holds its own parades and soirees, which they advertise on their website… which also includes a webbe shoppe for out of towners.

Their website describes their wares thus:

Who is Visage ‘n’ Vice?

Visage ‘n’ Vice Boutique, specialise in alternative wear and accessories catering to all occasions, and also inclinations of individuality and self expression.

V ‘n’ V Boutique is dedicated to providing you, with cutting edge clothing accessories and giftware. Creations are available as off the rack designs and also through our custom services, we provide something unique for a wide range of alternative subcultures.

One thing that we like at VnV is that if you see an item happens to tantalise your senses, but we don’t currently stock it in your size – never fear, as we are able to order it in. Our custom service really shines with the pure custom service, which entails you – the client, creating something that is uniquely you – an extension of your identity and personality.

Although not all designers can provide custom orders, these still cover a wide range of items including, but not limited to, furniture, clothing and accessories.

Custom orders are made possible by contacting us with a request and, where possible, an in store consultation with the respective designer can be arranged for a small fee.

Our Boutique offers you quality Independent creations with a focus on independent artistians, with a predominantly Australian made range.

Devil Kitty – Brunswick St Fitzroy

January 7, 2009

 

From the people who have brought you Victorian Gothic for the past few years, there’s a new boutique on Brunswick Street!  Called Devil Kitty,  they’re focussing on the rockabilly/alt.rock fashion side of Vic Gothic’s range, leaving the original store to stock themselves up to the kohl-laden eyelids with more gothic clothing.  Devil Kitty is only a couple of doors away from the original Vic Gothic, meaning that if you prefer not to have to choose one style or the other, it’s easy staggering distance to shop both.

With clothing for boys and girls instore, plus accessories, handbags and shoes, Devil Kitty is an intriguing alternative to the other rockabilly shop around the corner Faster Pussycat on Gertrude Street.  The DK website has a blog which seems to be semi-regularly updated with photos and stock news.
