YEVU Pop-Up Shops Are Coming to Sydney and Melbourne

A dose of retail therapy for a really good cause.

When it comes to fashion, staying ahead of the pack can be a mighty tough feat. But if you’re keen to kick monochromic minimalism to the curb, while giving a little back to your global community, we’ve found just the bold West African label to help you do it.

YEVU, which means 'foreigner' in the local Ewe language, is a socially responsible clothing line bringing the wild traditional wax prints of Ghana to Aussie shores. Linking local African tailors with style-conscious global customers, founder Anna Robertson is creating serious change for Ghanaian seamstresses living on the poverty line. After launching their sell-out debut range in October 2013, YEVU returns this month with a fresh selection of awesome new threads (we actually can't get enough of these prints).

From late November, Sydney and Melbourne will both house YEVU’s latest pop-up stores. Stocked with everything from daring jumpsuits to bold bomber jackets for both ladies and gents, these vibrant designs won’t go unnoticed in your wardrobe. Give back, shop ethically and nab a new look with some of the sweetest prints you’ll see all season.

Head along to the launch of YEVU's pop up locations in Sydney (636 Crown Street, Surry Hills) on November 26th and Melbourne (27-29 Johnston Street, Collingwood) on December 3th from 6 to 9pm. 

YEVU POP-UP OPENING HOURS

Sydney — November 27 to January 24 (10am to 7pm daily)
Melbourne — December 4 to January 31(10am to 7pm Daily)

Both stores closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.
