Fashion Weekend in Sydney

Just wanted to do a really short post about the Fashion Weekend that starts in Sydney tonight. Yes! I have tickets to the opening night fashion show at 8pm (2nd row) and will shop before that time – Lucette and Shakahachi being two I shall target first!

What is the Fashion Weekend?

Simply, it is Australia’s largest designer fashion sale. The once a year designer shopping experience takes place from tonight at 5pm through to Sunday 16 May at The Royal Hall of Industries, Moore Park.

In terms of the shopping, there are discounts of up to 70% off current and last season collections on clothes and accessories from 120 of Australia’s leading fashion designers including: Ginger & Smart, Fluer Wood, Peep Toe, Samantha Wills, Ellery, Camilla, Elle Macpherson Intimates, Shakuhachi, Lucette and more. (See some discount previews here, and a list of participating designers here)

There are also  hourly designer catwalks showcasing the latest looks for the season (designers on the catwalk, times and details here).

Other great inclusions are beauty makeovers, hair styling, SHOP til You Drop Fashion Clinic, style consultations, manicures  – and even Vivien’s model scouting for those who are young, tall and leggy (I am NONE of those things!)

OK, so designer clothes and even buying new clothes is hardly essential. But for those who have a little extra cash, and are looking to save on items they’ve been lusting after anyway, this is for you.

I’m off to get ready and then sally forth to SHOP!
