This Week In Sydney Fashion
Scotch & Soda
Yesterday cult Amsterdam-based label Scotch & Soda opened their flagship store on Castlereagh Street in the CBD. The store will be stocking the labels SS13/14 collection for women (Maison Scotch) and their menswear label (Scotch and Soda). The label is notorious for putting an eccentric twist on your wardrobe basics; think a standard blazer silhouette covered in camo and hot pink flowers, or skinny jeans with hardcore biker vibes. This store won’t be around for long so get in quick!
East is East Nightmarket
Everyone always needs to add more boho, ethereal pieces to their wardrobe/jewellery collection. Get down to the East is East Nightmarket. It’s hosted at the TAP gallery, 278 Palmer Street in Darlinghurst, and features the work of local fashion, jewellery and homeware designers who make their products from scratch. We’ll be there this Thursday, and we’ll definitely be making a few cheeky purchases to get us hippie-d up for Summer.
In a celebration of fashion and beauty The Galeries in the CBD are running “Publish Your Life At The Galeries”, an event to encourage fashionistas of Sydney to meet and share their love for all things sartorial. Check out the mall for a variety of different events, including a beauty tutorial by Eleanor Pendleton, Beauty Ambassador of Shop Til You Drop and editor of Gritty Pretty. Tickets on sale now!
Laneway Learning is a super cute idea, whereby a bunch of creative people meet up every week at Cowbell 808 Café and try and help inspire each other. The coming weeks will focus on fashion ideas, including how to successfully sell off your wardrobe at a market.
Every Wedneday @ Cowbell 808 Café 616 Bourke Street, Surry Hills (Admission $12)

This is a great opportunity for aspiring designers, models or fashion journalists, or anybody with an interest on how this incredible industry impacts our world.
