Pick up samples and one-offs from cult Australian and international designers at a highly reasonable price.
If seasonal change has left you in a dizzy headspin of brand new colours and fabrics and prints and jackets — or if, y'know, you just like some fancy new clothes now and then — you'll be pretty pleased to know that the Big Fashion Sale is coming back to Sydney for four days this March.
The name pretty much says it all. This thing is big — it takes over Paddington Town Hall. You'll find lush items from past collections, samples and one-offs from cult Australian and international designers, both well-known and emerging, including Celine, Stella McCartney, Ellery, Alexander Wang, Karla Spetic, Balenciaga, Studio Elke, LANVIN, Christopher Kane, Benah, Marni and macgraw.
With discounts of up to 80 percent off and items for as little as $20, this is one way of upping your street cred with designer threads that'll leave your bank balance sitting pretty too. Prices this low tend to inspire a certain level of ruthlessness in all of us, though, so practise that grabbing reflex in advance. This is every man and lady for themselves.
The Big Fashion Sale opening hours:
March 23 — 9am - 7pm
March 24 — 9am - 7pm
March 25 — 10am - 6pm
March 26 — 10am - 3pm
