Walking up the stairs of the Nicholas Building into RetroStar feels like stepping into another (very colourful) world. This vintage store specialises in 1940s-1990s clothing, shoes, accessories and bags. Seventies fanatics can't go past the range of flares, kitsch tees and leather jackets. If you're looking for a '70s style that's cool rather than pisstake, this one's for you. Music nuts won't leave disappointed either, with a huge range of band T-shirts and streetwear.
Skip the fast fashion – darling it's literally all happened before. Instead, get out there and hunt down some stylish pre-loved fashions in Melbourne's best vintage shops. We've chosen the following stores because they've done all the hard work for you so you can find fashion treasures from bygone eras and repurpose them as your own.
