We love dressing up with vintage at Work Shop. Like a lot of what we make, its fun to wear something very special while knowing the masses don't own it too!

We were rummaging through our vintage finds the other day and noticed how interesting the inside tags are, with old-worldly typography, not to mention how some of the label names sound all too 'familiar'? 

They not just look cool but tell something about what fashion was like at the time they were made. Have a look!

P.S: for those who haven't noticed yet, 80's is now officially vintage! come in and see what we've got in store!

Part dress ups, part eccentric couture is the best way to describe the style of fashion designer Alice Rawlinson. The name Divine Madness perfectly represents her contradictory style of design, embodying both daring and feminine qualities simultaneously.  

The latest collection ‘Skin’ was built around the idea of distortion of the human body, stemming from a fascination with alien life forms. Using a neutral colour palette and unusual draping of fabric, a kind of excess skin is created, which is manipulated into a range of designs. The fabric choices allow the designs to remain soft and feminine, despite the collection’s unworldly connotations.

The best thing about a lucky charms necklace is that each individual piece carries a story. Collected from different places at different times, when combined together it doesn't have to make sense!

This one at Work Shop features a telephone, a hot dog, hair combs, hearts, and a boy and girl kissing. The pieces were collected from various spots in London and Glasgow to get the collection started. As for covering the rest of the chain - its up to you!

Julie was recently approached by Adelaide photographer + digital artist Gee Greenslade to use some couture dresses from her 'Symbiotic' collection.

Gee wanted to use the dresses together with Hair and Makeup artists Becca and Jackson Kennedy, who shows great talent when a fantasy narrative is in call! 

The three described the experience as "One of the most fun and creative shoots we have ever done!!!" - We love what they have done

Welcome to the official Work Shop blog where you can find the latest news on the store and its four emerging designers. Workshop is a unique creative space where one can witness the real value of a garment from first sketch to the last stitch.

Its been an exciting 4 months since opening. We've been making changes and keeping busy with special events such as The Adeliade Fashion Festival. While building on the creative hub of Adelaide's West end,  workshop has enjoyed a steady stream of customers and fashion world visitors alike. A stop over from Sydney based fashion blogger Patty Huntington did not go unnoticed.

To keep up with demand our studio has upgraded from one cutting table to three. Recent additions from talented artists and designers give us all the more reason to be excited.

There is so much to learn and discover in the world of fashion. We like to think that style is a free game. To get anywhere new you have to be inventive and push the boundaries. It's up to the creators but its also up to consumers to think creatively. Everyone of us has the power to be fashion leaders and not just fashion followers.

Work Shop is a place where you can find what you love most about fashion, its a place for inspiration and we hope you enjoy following our development!
