“... This Carlton boutique has developed a
reputation for its carefully curated collection
of the more cerebral local labels...” 

Michelle Griffin for The Age


"Milly Sleeping is a truly special little store..."

Lucy Feagins for The Design Files (on our fifth birthday)


Milly Sleeping houses the wares of independent, locally-made design labels from Australia.

Complementing innovative womenswear ranges are a selection of unisex garments, accessories, jewellery and gifts.

Our nineteenth century terrace inhabits 157 Elgin Street, Carlton - opposite the grand, old Post Office - between Drummond and Rathdowne Streets. The salon is just around the corner from the eateries, bookshops and cinemas of Lygon Street, and fifteen minutes on foot from both Fitzroy's Brunswick Street and the Melbourne CBD. Two trams (Route 1 and Route 8) are accessible from Flinders and Melbourne Central Stations, and travel directly to Elgin Street.

The Carlton store is now open five days each week. When the door is shut, it may well be that one of us - Janette or Leah - is out the back (working on our in-house label)... Feel free to ring the bell, or make a time for an out-of-hours browse. 

We hope to see you soon.
