Noddy Vintage Clothing

"Noddy" represents the intersection of Naomi Merritt‟s interests in fashion, art, female identity, and cultural history, as she explains: “I get a real thrill from seeing customers fall in love with my vintage pieces as I know that a new chapter is being written in the history of the garment and in the life of the person wearing it”.

The Professor’s Daughter

A boutique prĂȘt-a-porter collection providing enviable style for exceptional women.

i wish i was a hippie

i wish i was a hippie specialisies in immaculate, hand-selected vintage pieces from the 50s to 80s. The range reflects both the superior workmanship and the playful spirit of a bygone time.


Nesnerosa headpieces are meticulously handcrafted in Melbourne, often combining vintage fabrics and trims, beading and embroidery to create exclusive headwear that will make a statement!

Pleasure, Little Treasure

Every Pleasure, Little Treasure fascinator is designed with both form and function in mind and is
lovingly constructed in Melbourne by hand - often using recycled vintage materials. These are not mass produced accessories that everyone is wearing, they are as unique as the women who wear them.

Great work ladies!
