About Us

  1. a person who follows the latest trends and fashions, especially those regarded as being outside the cultural mainstream.

Hipsta is alternative fashion where Festival meets Street, meets Beach. 

We stock a beautiful range of ethnic handicrafts and clothing, sourced from India and Thailand. With fully certified Body Piercing Studios in most of our stores. We also have an amazing range of jewellery and there is something for everyone.

Each year Hipsta’s Director, Debbie, travels to India, Thailand or both. She has spent 20 years building not only a business relationship but also a friendship with our suppliers. She has seen the amazing places where the items are created, had meals with the families, really gotten to know them as people and watched their children grow up. They are highly regarded as being a part of the Hipsta Family. We are overjoyed to be able to bring a culture that debbie has loved her entire life, to our beautiful country.
