There’s a new fashion capital in Australia—and it’s right here in Perth. Karrinyup has been completely transformed into the ultimate destination for fashion, food, entertainment and leisure, and while it’s easy to get caught up on the glamorous new additions (hello, Aje, Camilla and Sephora), there are some equally as amazing local apparel and footwear stores set to open their doors thanks to the centre’s new expansion.
Whether you’re looking for the next addition to your impressive shoe collection, a ‘fit that'll take you seamlessly from yoga to brunch, or maybe a last-minute dress for the weekend, there’s nothing better than supporting local businesses.
So without further ado, here are five of the best Perth based stores that you can visit at the new Karrinyup to upgrade your wardrobe rotation, stat.
