Makers of Melbourne

Welcome to Makers Of Melbourne – the ‘go to’ guide for our technically integrated age.

Makers Of Melbourne has been created to consume and assimilate Melbourne culture. We're male focussed, but not male specific, sorting through the dross to weed out the creative stars, standout events and stylish folk that make this city unique. 

MOM aims to embrace all facets of what makes this city a creative hub. Our aim is to inform without condescending – to keep you abreast of what’s going on without regurgitating Press Releases & to seek out this city’s sub cultures to give our readers the inside scoop on what’s REALLY happening with the people who make Melbourne Melbourne.

Courtney Safari Chukka


Courtney was photographed outside the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival parades at the Docklands this week in Kenyan handmade shoes by Safari. This brand may ultimately come under the umbrella of one of the world's largest international footwear manufacturers, but Safari's cowhide boots are still hand-stitched at the Bata factory in Limuru, central Kenya. After over 50 years in production, the Safari boot has become a revered icon in Kenya for decades.
