Margie Woods

Melbourne Official Visitor Guide - - Welcome To Melbourne -

Founder and cre­ative di­rec­tor, Vik­to­ria & Woods

Since she launched her la­bel in 2004, Margie Woods has had a sin­gu­lar vi­sion. “To in­spire and de­liver con­fi­dence through a con­sid­ered and mean­ing­ful wardrobe,” she says, and Mel­bourne is the per­fect city in which to do that. “Mel­bourne’s cre­ative land­scape has al­ways been a lit­tle more un­der­ground, with many pock­ets of in­flu­ence all fos­ter­ing a unique vibe,” she says. At the Vir­gin Aus­tralia Mel­bourne Fash­ion Fes­ti­val, fans can see Vik­to­ria & Woods’ au­tumn col­lec­tion at Pre­miere Run­way 1, spon­sored by vogue.com.au. “VAMFF pro­vides de­sign­ers and emerg­ing artists a plat­form to cel­e­brate, com­mu­ni­cate and col­lab­o­rate on a broader scale and in­vites the con­sumer into our world,” says Margie.

Here are some of Margie’s favourite places:

Cafe

Ali­men­tari in Fitzroy is an in­sti­tu­tion. It’s no fuss, lo­cal and I love any place with a food store and deli at­tached.

Restau­rant

I love ev­ery­thing about Cut­ler & Co — its de­sign, lo­ca­tion, am­bi­ence and per­fect bal­ance be­tween el­e­gance and sim­plic­ity.

Hid­den Gem

Franque in Toorak is a unique space, show­cas­ing emerg­ing and col­lectible art in all its forms, in­clud­ing sculp­tures, glass­ware, jew­ellery and so much more.

Free Thing To Do

Heide Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art is just a quick drive from Mel­bourne’s CBD. It’s the per­fect day trip for in­spi­ra­tion and fresh air.
