Not To Be Missed Event: James St Up Late
Peta Barker | On 27, Feb 2015
Discounts and special offers on new season wares, drinks and nibbles, styling tips from the Marie Claire crew, a street style photographer and free goodies bags. Sounds like your idea of a good time? Then keepÂ Thursday, March 12 freeÂ for the ultimate late night shopping experience at James St Up Late.
As if we needed any encouragement to visit Brisbane’s premier shopping strip, Up Late makes it Â irresistible.Â Mix and mingle, and hopefully steal a style tip or two from special guests Lisa Gorman, creative genius behind the quirky label Gorman as well as Verner’s designerÂ Ingrid Verner. As well as Verner and Gorman Marie Claire’s beauty and fashion teams will be at the ready to share their wisdoms and introduce theÂ new season trends and collections.
The event comes perfectly timed as the fashion conscious begin to deliberate the offerings of the Autumn/ Winter collections. If past years are anything to go by Up Late is the night to score brand spanking new pieces from designers which rarely offer in season discounts (Hello Zimmermann!) Not just for fashion, James St has a wide array of beauty, lifestyle and homewares boutiques which will be putting on a party especially for Up Late.
As is fitting for one of Brisbane’s most stylish nights a street style photographer will be roaming, ready to capture Brisbane’s best all frocked up. So ditch the casual shopping ensemble and slip into your finest as this isn’t and ordinary shopping event. Up LateÂ very much has a party atmosphere with live DJ’s as well as cocktails and champagne while you shop so don’t be afraid to whip out your stilettos.
To get your hands on one of the Marie Claire goodie bags make sure you get in quick!
