About Us


The Autonomy brand was created by Nick Demkiw in 2003. As a prominent graphic designer, DJ and music producer, he is immersed in the world of contemporary expression and thrives on bringing his creative visions to life.

Autonomy is an expression of style that embodies a freedom from conformity and distinctive state of mind. Our unique collections have forged a legion of loyal followers who thrive on their diversity, originality and offbeat personality. From humble beginnings as an exclusive range of t-shirts, the label has proudly grown to a diverse product offering for the modern man.

Say no to what others command and expect. Demand freedom and choose Autonomy…


On the corner of our Autonomy flagship store in the Melbourne Emporium shopping centre, you will find our bespoke coffee bar, Auto Espresso. It's here we blend the fashion and coffee scenes that Melbourne has become internationally famous for.

Auto Espresso is a specialty coffee bar in the CBD, serving up coffee from award winning roaster Industry Beans. Rose Street is our house blend, and we also feature a variety of single origins, all powered by our custom white powder-coated La Marzocco Linea PB.

Our baristas have pride in what they do, taking every step to ensure that your coffee is consistently delicious. Life is too short to drink bad coffee.
