No Order Market, Shifting Worlds

A market for order, chaos and vision; this is the No Order Market.

A collaborative retail space in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. NOM operates as a multi-store platform offering a unique selection of hard-to-find international, local and emerging designers. Established in 2015, NOM began with three exclusive fashion destinations: ARCHIVE, Slow Waves, Shifting Worlds and a library by World Food Books.

Six years later and post-pandemic, Shifting Worlds remains at the Elizabeth Street location. A luxury destination for niche labels from around the world. With names such as Pleats Please by Issey Miyake, Y’s by Yohji Yamamoto and Maryam Nassir Zadeh. The two adjacent spaces have become mostly vacant due to the effects of COVID19. We hope to bring people back into the city by hosting short-term residencies that are exciting for visitors and give further opportunity to young and emerging talent.

Kirra Scotland is the store manager of Shifting Worlds and curator of a new exhibition initiative within the No Order Market emporium. With a Bachelor of Fine Art, she uses the space as a platform to represent emerging and under-represented artists and designers. Honouring the long-standing connection between contemporary art, fashion and design.

Elle Ross is a curator, photographer, art director and stylist. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Diploma of Interior Design. Elle has recently worked for DISCORDIA Gallery as a guest curator and facilitator on solo exhibitions by artists such as Julia Trybala and Tully Moore, and has also worked on collaborations with Long Prawn. In 2015 she founded LON Gallery in Collingwood, Victoria, which participated in Spring1883. In 2018 Elle’s photographic essay of Palm Springs ‘Modernist Week’ was published in Vogue Living Australia and RUSSH. She is currently employed as an interior designer for studio a.m.i.

This year Kirra and Elle curated the Corner Suite at No Order Market. Furnished with available and sought after pieces from local artists, makers and designers.
