"There is a time and place for a good souvenir. These really are the most interesting and well-designed souvenir-style gifts I have come across." - THE DESIGN FILES
The Design Files (the webs' most gorgeous collection of information objects and style) has just featured Melbournestyle. We know once you taste The Design Files you'll be addicted!
"A great big love letter to Melbourne!"
In October 2010 interview with the Breakfasters on Melbourne's funkiest RRR FM radio Melbourne, author Maree Coote enjoyed 15 minutes chatting about the book with DJs Fee-B, Ben and Jess who declared The Melbourne Book 'a great big love letter to Melbourne!'
"IT'S AN ORIGINAL, WITH A STRONG SENSE OF PLACE AND ABOVE ALL, IT'S A STYLISH MOUTHPIECE FOR MELBOURNE."
RED MAGAZINE NOV 2010
OMG! OPRAH! According to The Age, (Sat.18/9/10 P.7 news) Melbournestyle's own Melbourne Scarves are the pefect gift for Oprah. And we agree of course.
"Here is much more than a store, it is a history lesson, a celebration of all that is uniquely Victorian (including Ned Kelly), somewhere to lose yourself and delight in the sheer creativity on offer (tasteful creativity, of course, in true Melbourne style). It makes souvenir places seem very tacky in comparison. On Clarendon Street South Melbourne, it's the first and only experience of its kind. A visit to Melbournestyle is a must do."
- Extract from RACV's 101 Best things to do in Victoria
"THIS MELBOURNE MECCA IS BANISHING THE CULTURAL CRINGE WITH ITS BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE INTERPRETATIONS OF AUSTRALIAN ICONOGRAPHY."
- HOME BEAUTIFUL magazine
"IF YOU LOVE THIS FABULOUS CITY OR ARE LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT SOUVENIR....."
- HOMESPUN magazine
"There are no flippant inclusions.Everything has a reason for being - a connection to Melbourne or Melbourne people who are doing something special."
- MELBOURNE LIVING Magazine, August 2009
Thanks to the fabulous people at Melbourne Living magazine for their tribute to our tribute to Melbourne.
"E' negozio e galleria questo spot avviato con successo dall'artista Maree Coote, specializzato esattamente nel Melbourne style: arte, moda e oggettistica, tutto disegnato e realizzato in citta."

We also had a visit from JAPAN-VIC.TOURISM Inbound Shopping Guide. This well-researched industry handbook is the ultimate resource for inbound Japanese tour operators, and features melbournestyle as its lead store, while its cover features our legendary Melbourne Cups and Saucers. They even named it after us! Domo Arigatoo Gozaimasu! (Not available to local Aussie shoppers - but you don't need it - you already know where we are, right? )
Meanwhile, back here at home, since they first found us in Home Beautiful , the Home Beauties have visited time and again with their fab shoping tours (see below).
HOME BEAUTIFUL has listed melbournestyle in the legendary STYLE HUNTER Shopping Guide...So you can grab a copy (free with the latest issue) and visit us along with all the other top-shoppable spots in Melbourne in one go. Look forward to seeing you in your safari suits soon.

Another racing season over, another zillion beautiful girls pack it up for a year. The weather gave us drama and goosebumps. But I kinda miss the gals parading in the open air between the Members and the Track. Like some blithely disconnected continuum of colour, up steps, across and down steps, running like a beautiful rivulet through an otherwise traffic-jammed or race-riveted crowd.
