It was once a stereotype that all people from Melbourne wore black, now it's quickly turning the other way. The pastel prints of local design icon Obus have been lighting up our city for some time now, particularly spotted around the inner-north with stores in the CBD, Fitzroy and Northcote. Known for its kooky style, block colours, and big billowing dresses, Obus strikes the perfect balance between high fashion and high comfort. Stand out from the crowd without having to squeeze into some hideous cocktail dress or bejewelled stilettos. These clothes were made to be worn loud and proud.
Obus is also located at 226 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy and 285 High Street, Northcote.
