It was handbags at dusk on Thursday November 12 as the opening night of Fashion Weekend kicked off a long-weekend of dedicated shopping, catwalk parades and more bargains than you could shake a shoe at.
Fashionistas and shopaholics united, credit cards at the ready, all there to revel in Australia’s biggest sartorial summer sale.
Over 120 designers had stalls displaying their discounted wares with labels including Marnie Skillings, Alice McCall, Fleur Wood, Nicola Finetti, Bracewell and Samantha Wills.
Not only was Fashion Weekend a veritable treasure trove of stylish delights, visitors also had a host of extras to enjoy.
The shopped-out and weary were able to relax in the Tempus Two lounge over a drink, while recharging their energy for a further bout of bargain hunting.
With designers discounting their stock up to 70% off, it was no wonder bags got heavier and wallets became lighter, as shoppers stocked up on designer goodies for a fraction of the price.
By Last Chance Sunday – the final day of the event – there was no doubt wardrobes around Sydney had enjoyed a designer-clobber revamp with thanks to a fashion weekend to remember.
