An immaculate boutique that's been delighting the visual senses of locals for more than a decade.
This gorgeous apparel and lifestyle boutique unbelievably started out as a sneaker concept store in 2003. Gifted with the talent of curation that seems effortless, owners Karin Kuok and Phil Koh thankfully branched out into apparel, homewares and more, creating a destination boutique that is both adored by Sydneysiders and incredibly difficult to categorise.
Footage only works with labels that have 'stories', and focuses on sustainability and quality design and craftsmanship — every item it sells needs to be, in one way or another, special. Expect to find everything from skincare made from native plants, organic chocolates and locally crafted ceramics to ethical fashion labels. This is the type of place that will make you want to hide your credit card from yourself, so be prepared to fall in love over and over again.
With its focus on supporting quality suppliers in mind, Footage also runs an after-hours 'meet the maker' series, in partnership with the City of Sydney, which invites local producers to discuss their craft and industry, before taking part in an intimate Q&A session. Keep an eye on Footage's Facebook page for news on upcoming events.
