"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.
And so we went to Dinner with Oprah's peeps:
More Oprah here...
"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."
