Niamh Galea (2013) launches hub for fashion designers

IGS Alumna and fashion designer Niamh Galea (2013) was recently featured in Vogue after launching a fashion and art store, RTTS.land.

The fashion designer created the appointment-only store as a part talent incubator, art gallery and retail front.

It follows the launch of her own clothing brand, Ramp Tramp Tramp Stamp. The collection was created to suit all genders and all sizes, and uses all secondhand elements.

“Propelled by the inevitability of lessened Covid-19 restrictions, Galea enlisted several of her designer friends to sell their pieces at the store, whose work errs on the side of wearable art,” Vogue wrote of Niamh.

“With the help of new architecture firm Copy Nature Space, a for-appointment retail space was created, in an unassuming studio that now harbours some of Australian fashion’s most exciting work,” the publication continued.

“Galea has commissioned costume designers and stylists Georgia Harper and Verity Mackey to provide pieces, and given that they aren’t conventional clothing designers, Galea said Harper and Mackey have ‘felt free to do some more wild things’.

“RTTS.land will also feature designs from some of Galea’s fellow designers from her time studying at Parsons School of Design in New York and working for Eckhaus Latta. Even her own Ramp Tramp Tramp Stamp interns will design their own pieces, and Galea is excited she can provide this retail opportunity.”
