Australia agenda: designer label discounts at Fashion Weekend Sydney
Sunday 08 May 2011
Get your credit cards ready for this once-a-year shopping marathon. Fashion Weekend Sydney sees Australian designers and labels heavily discount garments and accessories from their current and past season collections during this annual mammoth sale.
4th Fashion Weekend Sydney
Royal Hall of Industries, Sydney
Approximately 120 designer brands will be heavily discounting clothes and accessories for Fashion Weekend Sydney, Australia’s largest designer sale. The heavily-trafficked shopping event sees around 15,000 women scrambling to purchase designer clothes at prices discounted by up to 70 percent. Makeovers, hairstyling, beauty tips and fashion shows highlighting the season’s latest fashion trends are also on offer during the event. In March, the Fashion Weekend shopping event visited Melbourne as part of the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.
14th Sydney Writers’ Festival
Various locations around Sydney
Sydney Writers' Festival is Australia's largest annual celebration of literature and ideas. The week-long event is made up of a combination of free and ticketed events in locations stretching from the inner city Sydney to the spectacular Blue Mountains. The event features around 400 Australian and international poets, novelists and authors of literary nonfiction and attracts audiences of around 80,000 every year. Victoria's Melbourne Writers' Festival (August 25 - September 4) has been running as a solo event for longer than the Sydney Writers’ Festival but attracts a smaller audience of around 50,000 visitors.
