Sydney is known for being forefront in the fashion stakes, and people flock to this trend-setting city from all over Australia and beyond for dedicated shopping trips. To celebrate Vogue Fashion Night Sydney on 3 September this year, here are our picks for the best places to hunt out great new looks in Sydney.
For the high-end label lover
If you can never have enough Prada, we guarantee you’ll experience your best shopping in Sydney right in the heart of the city. Wander through Pitt Street Mall, George and Castlereagh Streets and Strand Arcade to find everything from Hugo Boss, Tiffany and Jimmy Choo to local labels Zimmerman and Carla Zampatti.
For a taste of everything
Westfield Sydney might just be the busiest and best shopping centre in Sydney, as well as the most diverse. You’ll find everything here from affordable fashion to big local names including Sass & Bide, Tigerlily and Ginger & Smart. You can even book a personal styling consultation over a glass of bubbly.
For retro and rockabilly cool
If you love to get your frock on, we can suggest two of the best places to shop in Sydney for rockabilly and pinup fashion. No self-respecting retro lover would leave the city without a visit to the ever-glamorous Wheels & Doll Baby, while Retrospec’d offers fun new 50’s-style dresses based on original designs.
For the vintage vixens
While it’s difficult to narrow down the best shops in Sydney for vintage treasures, our city favourites include Miss Brown Vintage, Lou Murray Vintage and The Vintage Clothing Shop for armfuls of curated lovelies from yesteryear. You could come away from your Sydney trip with a beautiful new Art Deco brooch, a pair of 70’s denim shorts or a wild shaggy jacket.
Need a stylish apartment to match?
There’s no better way to end a day of full-on fashion than putting your feet up in your own luxury apartment. Meriton Serviced Apartments offers sumptuous accommodation in North Sydney and the CBD. Stay close to the fashion shows and shopping hubs, and enjoy some of the most breathtaking views from your own personal haven.
