Brisbane, if you always cringed at our southern sisters for hosting the best fashion events, shows and sample sales, then you better turn that frown upside down. This news will not only blow your fashionable mind, but will make your credit card pounce out of your wallet and do the happy dance. Mine is currently doing the same.
Grazia Magazine announced in last week’s issue, (grab a copy now!) they are en route to Brisbane’s fashion central, James Street, and open the doors to an ultimate shopping heaven for their readers on November 18 (Thursday).
The big names behind some of Australia’s best fashion labels will be in and around the James Street Precinct to meet every shoppers fashionable dream. The guest list starts from Heidi Middleton (Sass & Bide), Collette Dinnigan, Kirrily Johnston, Easton and Lydia Pearson (Easton Pearson), Marnie Goss (Frockshop) and the list goes on…
Readers can enjoy exclusive discounts and entertainment in every store alongside James Street but the place where you should start AND end your night is at FrockShop’s flagship store. If you’re a diehard fan of their online store, then wait till you step inside their retail paradise. It is arty, unique, eclectic, colourful and always smells beautiful (there has to be a secret behind that).
The beautiful lady behind Australia’s fashion label Camilla & Marc, Camilla Freeman-Topper will be in store on the night and spreading her stylish aura around. And of course, a warm spring night is incomplete without a chilled glass of bubbly.
All shoppers get an exclusive one-night-only discount of 25% on new season styles.
FrockShop also has an autographed copy of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s cult book Influence to give away on the evening. Yep, signed by the twins – but you’ll have to get in the doors before 7pm.
The fabulous fashion illustrator Kelly Smith has been commissioned to design a limited-edition calico tote bag to give away as a gift to the first shopper who spends $100 in-store.
Kelly has previously created whimsical artworks for the walls of the FrockShop boutique and she has agreed to produce only 20 hand-signed prints of her Bunny Girl illustration which will be available for sale at the event. You’ll have to be quick!
If you cancelled your manicure appointment for this week, then worry not, an Essie manicurist will be in-store to pamper your nails.
If you’re a fashion blogger or just a crazy shopaholic, you need to cancel everything in your schedule for November 18 and make your way to 65 James Street in Fortitude Valley – Frockshop’s boutique.
So hurry up, pick out the most glamourous outfit in your wardrobe, the sparkliest stiletto from your shoe-rack and make your way down to the magical land of FrockShop.
If you’re a non-Brisbane resident, currently frowning at the computer screen for missing out on this event and almost ready to click on the “cross” button to close this window – then STOP.
I still love you and so does FrockShop.
