The Fleet Store

The Fleet Store QUT 2013

Once a year QUT's double degree Business and Fashion students run a fabulous little pop-up store stocking amazing pieces from local and student designers:

The Fleet Store!

I missed out on visiting the store last year but was stunned by the incredibly unique clothes and accessories I later saw in photos. I didn't want to miss a thing this year so I headed straight there on Monday morning when they opened to check it out.

This year's store is hosted in a creatively outfitted shipping container or 'POD' right in the middle of the creative industries precinct of QUT's Kelvin Grove campus. For such a small space, these kids have done great things with it! The racks were full of incredible pieces from simple and elegant basics to eye-catching printed statement items.

I would've bought out the whole store if I could, but I settled on this super cute gator print halter top by Brisbane label House of Cards, from their amazing Swamp Monsters collection (check it out!). 

If you're a Brisbane gal like myself, I strongly recommend popping in for a cheeky shop to support these talented young designers before the shop pops-down on August 30!

You can find The Fleet Store @ Paper Place, Musk Ave, QUT Kelvin Grove Campus.

Opening Hours:
10am - 6:30pm Monday to Wednesday
10am - 7:30pm Thursday to Friday
9am - 1pm Saturdays
