We have studio & retail space to rent, with reasonable rates and no lock in contracts. We are the next step from graduating fashion school to building your fashion brand.

Please use the 'CONTACT US' page to get in touch. 

​We'd love to hear about your exciting idea.


​Are you bored of seeing similar garments and accessories in a tired old frock shop or shopping mall? Frustrated with poor quality imported products?

We offer the discerning buyer exciting concepts in local designer shopping.

Acquire @ DESIGN is a revolutionary store.

With a strong focus on Australian design, our concept is a multi faceted store, which combines retail space, open plan studio and sewing machine work room for independent designers, creating a store with an eclectic mix of fashion clothing, millinery, jewellery, accessories, artwork and selected homewares from Australian designers and artists.

The benefits of Australian design and manufacturing go beyond quality and contribute to our local community. Our local offering allows us shorter lead times and high levels of customer / community engagement.  

We are about providing a beautiful space for shoppers to browse, touch & feel actual product with affordable price points to suit every person. Our open plan studio allows designers to cut, sew, create then sell their designs - all in one place.

 We are bringing the heart and soul back into the retail shopping experience and we want you to be part of it.
