Oak Off Chapel launches

Fashionably tucked away down a dark laneway off Chapel St, Prahran, we entered into the abandoned warehouse that is Oak Off Chapel through a low cut-out hole in a graffitied rollardoor. A dark flight of stairs later and we found ourselves in an exhibition space-slash-boutique where clothes and accessories by independent designer labels hung from the ceilings in clusters. I’m smitten by the small yet unique collections, from the dark, sophisticated wares of Sosume and Kollate to the stand-out accessories of Jude and Tor Mathieson (the latter of which we spied on one guest, in the form of a necklace which spelled out the uncensored word C**T).

In the coming weeks, starting Wednesday March 10, the Oak Off Chapel gallery and store will be open to the public.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
