Made in North Melbourne

Jump on the 57 tram – or take a short train ride from the city – and you’ll find yourself immersed in the cafes, colourful retailers and lively community of North Melbourne.

Tucked away in this vibrant suburb is a collection of savvy ‘makers’ who have turned their talents to crafting beautiful fashion, jewellery, and delicious coffee.

We duck into Code Black Howard Street, and meet the crew who’ve transformed an old car workshop into a relaxed haven for yummy food and single origin and filter coffee (which they roast themselves).

Next stop is the laneway HQ of couture guru Jason Grech, who designs and handcrafts heavenly wedding dresses and award-winning gowns for the red carpet.

Our last destination is Wayne Lynch Master Jewellers on Errol Street, a father and son team that design and create stunning and original pieces to keep for a lifetime.
