Finders Keepers Melbourne this weekend!

Well its that time of year again in Melbourne where anyone who’s anyone is attending the 2nd Finders Keepers market at Docklands Melbourne!
As you know Made590 are sponsors of all The Finders Keepers and usually at this time of year we are frantically preparing for the up coming market. Unfortunately this time round we can’t attend due to my health, but I promise to all out Melbourne customers that we will most certainly be at the next one!
Incredibly disappointed that I won’t be attending this amazing event, I have been torturing myself by reading the line up on the Finders Keepers website and the designer directory, below is a VERY short selection of stalls that I would have been spending lots of money at it if I was there!!
As always Made590 have worked together with the FK team to produce some amazing merchandise, I have spent the day printing very cute dresses with a handsome fox print and the new 3/4 tops that are in a favourite Made590 shape. So even though we won’t be there to say hi to please stop by the The Finders Keepers stand to see whats new!
Happy shopping 🙂 Christina x

New Autumn Window!

Our wonderful new window is here! This gorgeous colourful design is courtesy of the super talented Lyndsay and Ben from Candy Stripe Cloud! You will also notice in our window display we have new knits from Pol, our new basic long sleeve tops & new surface art! (watch out for new additions online this week!) The trees outside of the shop leaves are turning beautiful shades of orange and we’re all looking forward to the cooler days so we can all start wearing our winter dresses & winter boots! x

Support for Japan

All of us here at made590 have been so sad about the terrible news from the Japan Earthquake & Tsunami. It is so devastating to see the mass destruction and thousands dead, and our hearts go out to all those who have lost so much. As you probably know made590 are big supporters of japanese contemporary design of all sorts, Christina travels to Japan once a year and we always use japanese fabric featured in our clothing and homewares and sell beautiful Japan products in our store.
You may remember a while ago we had an amazing Tokyo Guide Zine by Hello Sandwich. Ebony has been living in Tokyo so Japan is extremely close to her heart and she is selling a PDF version of her amazing Gift Wrapping Zine for $5 with all profits going to Japan. That is one creative way that you can help and ask you please to help spread the word. Otherwise you can also donate directly to Japan via the Australian Red Cross.
Here is also a collection of posters you can buy by designers around the world to support Japan.
