The Strand Arcade | Urban List Sydney

If you love Thursday night shopping, serious Australian fashion talent and flowing espresso martinis—you’ll want to listen up. 

This week, historic shopping spot The Strand Arcade is hosting their annual Evening With Our Designers shindig, which basically means an unmissable line up of designers for you to meet, listen to and drink espresso martinis with. 

The Strand Arcade has always been a prestigious spot for quality curated shopping (Strand Hatters, Aesop, Aje, Dinosaur Designs and Haigh’s Chocolates, to name just a few), and this night offers countless luxurious experiences to match it.

We’re talking caviar tasting, champagne bars and oyster shucking, while listening to your favourite designers share stories of their creative visions and industry secrets. Warning, the remainder of this article contains a lot of name dropping, so get excited. Powerhouse Museum curator Glynis Jones and senior curator Roger Leong will be interviewing Australian designers like Akira Isogawa, Genevieve and Alexandra Smart (Ginger & Smart), Edwina Forest (Aje) and Louise Olsen (Dinosaur Designs), and we highly recommend heading over here to register so you can meet these inspiring local creatives. 

To top it all off, on arrival, you’ll be welcomed to the ground floor’s Romolo Espresso e Cucina espresso bar to indulge in a cocktail pick-me-up in the form of an espresso martini.

And if that wasn’t reason enough to hit up this fashion blowout, throughout the night, exclusives, shopping prizes and one-night-only offers are available too from the likes of Dion Lee, Dinosaur Designs, Mecca Cosmetica, Lover and Jac+Jack, along with the chance to meet and be styled by designers from Aje, Akira, Manning Cartell, Bassike, Rebecca Vallance and Thurley.

Don't miss out, register right here to attend.
