Mag Square

about us

It started as a little idea in 2005 when twenty or so creative Melbourne women came together in a charming old warehouse to collectively showcase their talent; Magnolia Square was born! We quickly gained a loyal following and have gone on to be known as the curated market place for independant artists, designers and makers from around Australia. As the originator of design orientated pop up retail in Melbourne, our concept is truly authentic, unique and continually evolving.

Managed by a small and passionate team who care very much about promoting creativity in every guise, each event is carefully curated to bing together a cohesive group of artists, designers and crafts people at the top of their game. Often likened to a high end trade show, Magnolia Square is experiential retail at its best.
