About Make Me Iconic
It all started with an idea …
Well two actually. We returned home to Melbourne in 2008 after an extended (10 year!) stay in Europe. Immediately we fell in love with the city again. How could you not? The city has so much to offer that is unique, stylish and contemporary we wanted something in our home that brought those elements to life. Sadly, there was nothing to be found. We had great souvenirs from London, but nothing to represent Melbourne – the city we grew up in and once again call home.
We knew we weren’t the only ones that love this city and guessed that we weren’t the only ones that wanted to take a part of it home.
So the seed was sewn.
We would find the best young, local designers to help us represent some of the unsung icons of the city. We knew what the icons were but didn’t know much about their history. So we decided to educate ourselves and our customers about the history of each icon and give them facts about what makes the icons unique.
So with unsung icons and urban education in mind Make Me Iconic was born, launching our first range of products in December 2009.
Designed for locals and tourists alike Make Me Iconic’s range of products capture the essence of the city and give it the style and sophistication it deserves. Great for gifts, homesick expats or just a treat for yourself.
