What is so great about Sydney? Well, it has been about 5 years since I have ventured to these shores. I got converted to Melbourne after my second visit, having been to Sydney many times. Perhaps it was by that stage that I had sussed out the amazing shopping spots and the culture and style that is all Melbourne. Sydney on the other hand seems to be more about instant trend and chain stores galore. Perhaps the weather also has some say as warmer climate and the proliferation of young people help drive fashion to a younger level.
The plan is to see what Sydney has to offer this time round. The fact that Vogue Australia are having the “ultimate shopping event” has me expecting great things. My learned traveling companion has come along as assistant advisor on all things retail.
In the latest New Zealand Fashion Quarterly, Francis Hooper from WORLD did an expose on all that is great about Sydney. So I am going to take a leaf out of his book and check out some of his favourite spots and perhaps add some tips of my own.
