Fashion enthusiasts, get your wallets ready. If you ever needed an excuse to shop (who are we kidding?), this is it. This week we’re going to be shopping up a storm and we have a very valid reason for doing so.
That’s right, revellers of retail, have we got the event for you (ahem, us). Sydney’s iconic shopping precinct, The Strand Arcade will be hosting their 125th anniversary shopping event from the 25th- 27th of August to celebrate the arcade’s heritage in craftsmanship, creativity and, of course, fashion.
So, if you’re in need for some retail therapy, now’s the time to get spending because over the course of the three days, The Strand will become home to some of the best, limited edition retail offerings. And it gets better. If you’re a Mastercard cardholder, you will have the chance to take full advantage of retail offerings from some of our favourite brands and designers including Skin and Threads, Strand Hatters, Akira and Farage. With huge discounts on a range of clothing and accessories, Mastercard cardholders will enjoy exclusive savings every time they make a purchase using their card. So, why not treat yourself to designer fashion, spoil yourself with jewellery or perhaps even get red carpet ready, because we’re pretty sure there’s a reason it’s called retail therapy and we think this is it.
There’ll even be culinary experiences on offer, including a whisky tasting station as well as bespoke creations from resident artisans including leather embossing at Hunt Leather, so you can have your leather purchases personalised.
So there you have it. No need for excuses. This is the shopping spree you’ve been holding out for.
We’ll see you at The Strand.
