Ike & Fly Collective was born in October 2014. Nestled in the buzzing shopping and cafe strip that is Westgarth Village in Northcote, this welcoming retail space stocks a range of carefully selected hand crafted clothing, accessories and home wares combined with a selection of quality vintage pieces. All hand made items are designed and made in Australian by local independent designers, makers and artists.
With an eclectic mix of products, the collection achieves a cohesion of both contemporary and vintage ranges through a firm commitment to well considered design and quality in every piece.
As a collective designers (collective members) rent a space in the store and take 97% profits from their sales. Members may also choose to work a few hours in the store each week. There are several advantages to the retail collective as opposed to traditional retail models. Members have a personal investment in the collective and are engaged in work they produce particularly for the store and for their customers. It develops connections between makers and the local community. Pooled resources and shared ideas between talented creatives makes a dynamic and ever evolving space.
WHOLESALE and CONSIGNMENT options are also available to stockists where applicable.
All submissions to be made via email. Please provide current photos, a short bio, links to website, social media etc. and current stockists. We will contact those we think would be a good fit for the store.
