Raw Edge Boutique
Raw Edge Boutique is located in an old milk bar. When owners Justine Blake and Alicen Lewis first talked about starting a business together, they knew this space was their first option. Blake had always admired the light-filled store and often visited the previous shop.
With a friend group that included a commercial fit-out designer and an interior designer, it was a team effort to create the store. Blake’s landscaper husband constructed all the timberwork on the walls of the raw and industrial-style shop. In keeping with the name, matte grey pipes became the change-room curtain rails, and brass tubes were made into clothing racks.
Those racks are now populated with womenswear from well-known Australian labels. You’ll find One Teaspoon cut-off denim shorts next to relaxed, paisley-print dresses from Auguste the Label.
Other labels include Maurie & Eve, Shona Joy and Steele. There’s also a small display of rough and faceted crystal jewellery from Krystle Knight and Mania Mania beneath the glass counter.
We do not seek or accept payment from the cafes, restaurants, bars and shops listed in the Directory – inclusion is at our discretion. Venue profiles are written by independent freelancers paid by Broadsheet.
