Signet //: a small seal, especially one set in a ring, used instead of or with a signature to give authentication to an official document.

The Signet Bureau’s seal of authenticity originates from a unique vision that brings together artisanal Creators each with their own original identity and aesthetic values.

In a market place brimming full of knock offs and derivative styles, the Signet Bureau’s aim each season is to select and artfully showcase our collections with pieces that will resonate personally to you.

We encourage our wearers to peruse and immerse themselves in a hand picked selection of fine artisanal creations and “Find What You Love”


Founded in 2007 as a designer owned and operated retail gallery space, The Signet Bureau, located in Gertrude Street, Fitzroy, was an early pioneer in the niche slow fashion market segment that has grown and evolved into a thriving local community of specialty boutiques, artists, galleries, jewellers, cafes and restaurants.

In recent years we have complemented our local Melbourne based Creators and introduced selected international Creators whose work embodies The Signet Bureau’s focus on authentic, sustainable and ethical, functional and wearable design.


The Signet Bureau is an experience that goes beyond its gallery quality displays of clothing, accessories and objects.

The store comprises an innovative garment hanging system, suspended from exposed webbed steel trusses, that integrate the clothing and accessories to form part of the architectural space and provides an interactive response to artfully showcase our curation of independent Creators from all over the world.

We strive to offer a friendly, knowledgeable and personalised level of service; our team are talented and imaginative stylists and use their skills to help find the perfect piece for you.


The Signet Bureau has always and continues to provide a welcoming space where individuals can explore and discover a thoughtfully curated selection of artisanal and wearable design.

With an inclusive approach we share a fundamental belief that each wearer regardless of age or size should have the opportunity to find pieces that resonate and speak personally to them.
