Hannah Wang is the high-spirited shop owner of Abbot Kinney Blvd. staple AUST. Located across from health hub, Kreation Kafe & Juicery, Wang’s outpost overflows with a fresh energy straight from the shores of Sydney. There’s something enticing about the laidback beauty and Aussie charm of AUST. When you enter the shop, you’ll find contemporary collections of clothes providing pops of color that creatively contrast from its white walls and white lights.

Each piece in the store has been passionately curated to include talented fashion designers such as Bec + Bridge, Valley eyewear and Zanerobe who has been known to collaborate with artists from Los Angeles-based music label T.D.E. Music and fashion are often paired together at AUST.’s “First Friday’s” events, which feature in-store discounts and good vibes that radiate from the disco ball hanging from the shop’s ceiling.

If you’re thinking about attending one of these epic events, then visit AUST. at 1219 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA 90291 during Abbot Kinney Festival. This year’s annual event will be happening Sunday, September 24 from 10a – 6p. Admission is free so come enjoy over 300 vendors, food trucks, kids’ games and beer gardens. Until then, learn more about AUST. by visiting or follow them on Facebook or Instagram.
