Truly immerse yourself in Australia’s fashion scene with an expert stylist.
Sydney’s Fashion Scene
Sydney has a very vibrant and unique fashion scene. Each neighbourhood has its own unique character and charm. People come from all over the world to shop Sydney and add a taste of Australian fashion to their wardrobe. But where does one begin? We’ve designed this day to ensure no time is wasted and you are personally hosted by Sydney’s top stylist to a selection of Australian boutiques in Sydney. We know the Sydney fashion scene better than anyone and we’ll design your day’s itinerary based on your wishes and personal style.
Fashion Suburbs We Love
One can not go past the Queen Victoria Building and the Strand Arcade on a day of shopping in Sydney. Both landmark, heritage listed buildings in Sydney’s CBD and house some of Australia top designer brand’s flagship stores. We love Double Bay for its high-end couture, Paddington for everything trendy, Woollahra for unique boutiques and Bondi Beach for high-end bohemian. We need to know exactly what you’re into and we’ll plan your day in advance to ensure you see the very best in town.
Your Day, Your Way
Before your shopping day with us we’ll ask you a few questions to learn more about you and your style. With your background information, your specialised stylist will meet you at your hotel where you can relax over a champagne or coffee and discuss exactly what you would like to get out of the day. From there, the fun begins. We’ll host you on a day of shopping and exploring you’ll never forget. And rest assured there will be time for a gourmet lunch in either Paddington, Woollahra, Potts Point or Double Bay along the way.
