A stalwart of the local design scene, Kylie Zerbst has been kitting Melbourne women out in simple but stylish fashion since the turn of the century. Rather than whatever is seen to be in fashion, Kylie and her fellow designers are inspired by travel, art and all the other joyous aspects of life. Expect graphic patterns and strong colour s(and you thought all Melburnians dressed in black!), especially in the cute-as-a-button dresses that, given a layer here or there, can be worn all year round. Speaking of layers, Obus does a great line of merino warmers – wear them with trousers or under one of those dresses – that are great for travelling.
Fitzroy is packed with shops, bars and restaurants and just a short tram ride into the city. Brunswick Street is the most popular artery and nearby is equally hip Collingwood.
