and don't forget evelyn miles in the mlc centre.

of course, while you're there, there's all the designers on Castlereagh st.. LV, chanel etc

And, there's a designer outlet.. Voi, along the side of the QVB.. 2 levels of a building with all authentic stuff, luck of the draw. lots of clothes, some accessories.. I once got tons of Helmut Lang shoes there for $90 ea!

Fashion in Australia?
Hey Everybody!

I´ll be in Sydney next week and I wonder if anybody could give me some shopping tips. Are there any cool Australian brands? I´m very slim,so I like Dior Homme,Number(N)Ine,Stephan Schneider,Lad Musician etc. Maybe this kind of fashion is not very popular over there,but maybe I´ll be lucky(^-^)~
I´m also interested in cool domestic skincare or hip spots in the city.

Thank you very much for your help!!

hey as far as i know none of the labels you listed above are even available in sydney. I think the fashion scene here is alot more casual with a street wear focus. You might like Tsubi which makes skinny jeans (sydney is flooded with them) as for stores you might want to check out Filthy Lucre on oxford street or The Picket Fence store in Darlinhurst.
There is also a shop called Incu in the Victoria Galleries which sells some cool t shirts and stuff.. Im not familiar with stephan schnieder but i havent seen much in syd that looks similar to dior or lad musician
hope this helps

anyone knows if Voi is still around? Which side of QVB? I don't remember seeing anything remotely close to a shop like that.

Anyone knows?

Canberra- salvage vintage sales 9/11/06

One of Australia’s finest collections of Vintage clothing, furniture and home wares is about to be sold in Canberra. The sale will be held at The Embassy Motel on Sunday the 5th of November.

Hey I was hoping to get a jacket tailored down a size. Mostly in the shoulders and chest, can anyone recommend a great tailor for alternations in Sydney? I heard there was a good one at the QVB?

WHAT
PICKET FENCE STORE

WHERE
399 DARLINGHURST ROAD, SYDNEY
CONTACT
(02) 9360 0790
Van Hua had a vision in 2003 to create a retail outlet specialising in innovative and daring men’s fashion. His Picket Fence Store was born of a
need to educate Sydney men about international standards of style. After a successful start, the store built a name for itself incorporating brands such as manvious, Erica America, material boy, pop issue and Michael. Sadly however, three years on it looks like Picket Fence must open it’s well oiled gates for the last time as it prepares for it’s impending closing down sale.

In approximately four weeks, one off garments and exclusive designs will be slashed to Crazy Ron’s Mobile Phone-style prices as Van and his staff say goodbye to Darlinghurst. Blame the rise in petrol prices, inflated mortgages, or maybe the exodus of new families to the Sunshine Coast.

Luckily, we can rest assured that the sun hasn’t quite gone down on Darlinghurst. Sydney may need a little time to accept its fashionability.
But when that time arrives, Van assures us that Picket Fence will once again swing open its gates to the sound of the cash register.

Australian fashion certainly resembles LA to a certain extent, meaning virtually no space for a mass european influence any time soon.
