for women, by women.

The Queen Victoria Women’s Centre Shop is a feminist design concept store in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, showcasing locally sourced and designed products by women (cis, trans) and non-binary artists, designers and makers form across Victoria.

*When we say women, that word always includes trans and
gender diverse women and sistergirls.


On International Women's Day 2020 we opened our feminist makers store QVWC SHOP on the ground floor of the historic Queen Victoria Women's Centre,  in the heart of Melbourne’s QV shopping precinct.

We saw an opportunity to bring our creative community together and celebrate some of Victoria's finest women and gender diverse artists, designers and makers.


Fast forward three years and one global pandemic later, and we feel very lucky to be able to continue our mission to support women entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and to share their stories.
