“A Shopping Experience for those Wild at Heart”
It’s no coincidence that in addition to describing myself as a wife and mother, I also include ‘shopper’ to my Instagram bio. I just love shopping. Especially for my children. So when I heard about The Wild Collective, I knew I wanted to attend this inaugural event.
The creative masterminds behind The Wild Collective, Renee Falckh and Amy Cimino, are transforming the retail experience and launching a two day shopping, lifestyle and entertainment extravaganza to be held in Melbourne at the Royal Exhibition Building this August. Not only is this a celebration of all things creative with a huge list of vendors, there will be cooking demonstrations, a Kids Zone and even a pop-up pub called the Man Cave. It will truly be an experience for the whole tribe!
The vendors taking part in The Wild Collective aren’t just about fashion either. Think décor, beauty products, handcrafted furniture, home ware, art, eco-friendly products, toys, food and so much more.
A Wild Collective ambassador, Oobi, need no introduction. With 12 years of experience in children’s fashion, accessories and décor, they will be showcasing their Spring/Summer 2015 line throughout the two-day exhibition and it’ll be sure to impress! With (almost) two children myself, I’ll be scouring the new collection for their summer wardrobes. If you haven’t yet become acquainted with Oobi, their website (www.oobi.com.au) and Instagram (@oobi) will give you a taste of what to expect.
Other notable vendors involved in The Wild Collective who I’ll be stalking include;
ONE TINY TRIBE – Ridiculously cute art prints and tees, perfect for my new nursery.
HUMBLE BODY – Natural hemp based and organic skin care made right here in Melbourne.
LUXBITE – When their motto is “life is uncertain, eat dessert first”, what’s not to love? Can’t wait to check out their gourmet sweet treats!
PAPER TO YOU – Hand crafted paper floristry that honestly must be seen to be believed.
