The evolution of an idea

It started about 8 years ago...unlike many ideas that come and go and are barely remembered, this one has resurfaced again and again.

Welcome to the Localist.

The Localist is a celebration of the unique style of the Southern Hemisphere, from the cafes of Melbourne to the beaches of Rio.

Enjoy, share ideas and join the celebration!
