Established in 1977, Dakota 501 is one of the oldest independent denim stores in Australia. Since the late 1970s Dakota 501 has forged an identity as one of Melbourne’s most reliable and diverse denim destinations.
Having pioneered the "store within a store" or "concept store" floor design in Australia, Dakota 501's hallmark is its commitment to displaying passionately selected local and international labels in unique environments. To this day we continue to showcase each brand this way, serviced by a staff-member who knows the product back-the-front and upside down.
Dakota 501 has recently launched the online face of the Dakota501 shop floor.
Everything about Dakota501.com - from the models to the person packaging your purchase - is good ol' fashion home grown Dakota 501. We are not run out of a huge warehouse and we are not answering to any big wigs over at head office!
In this way we are unique, authentic and ever passionate.
