We recently spoke to Fashion Journal on how and why we opened.
Sandwiched between coffee shops and art galleries on Brunswick’s bustling Sydney Road, Better with Friends is a concept store offering a selection of colourful pieces from local designers. Its Founder, Rebecca Koster, had been working on her own label full-time for over five years when she felt ready to bring her own space to life. In March of 2022, Better with Friends opened its doors.
“It seemed a waste of an opportunity to only stock myself when there were so many labels I admired that would be welcomed in Brunswick,” Rebecca says. After having her son only six months prior, Rebecca put the store together in “chaos”, but the result is perfectly curated – a vibrant, welcoming space for all kinds of shoppers. Below, Rebecca shares the inspiration behind the new store.
