Our Story

Come inside the wonderfully extravagant world of Nine Lives Bazaar. The lovechild of Rose Madden and Vanessa Cave, work wives by trade and soul sisters by heart, Nine Lives Bazaar is for the lovers of locomotion, life and a whole lot of nostalgia. 

Forever inspired by the golden eras, Rose and Ness revel in the eclectic unknown and glorious gamut of unearthed treasures. Beguiled by pre-worn troves of frocks and ephemera, they pondered the wild lives these garments had already lived before. 

Dripping with bold colours, fierce freedom and unapologetic expression, Nine Lives Bazaar is inspired by the colourful lives of generations that came before us. 

The moniker comes from the nostalgia anticipated for every creation it homes. Who will you pass this possession down to? How many date nights and weddings will it dazzle? What festival grounds will it strut upon? The collections are timepieces and talismans that will fall into nine (or more) hands, and sink deep into their hearts. 

Nine Lives Bazaar is a celebration of freedom, expression, good times and truly is an extension of Ness and Rose’s intrinsic style, just like it exists to be an extension of yours, designed for the statement-makers. Because life’s too short for anything but.
