Melbourne lays claim to many titles within Australia – culture, cuisine, sport, entertainment, and of course, fashion. Visit two contrasting fashion destinations in today’s tour, led by your MPT guide and a local Melbourne fashion identity – your personal stylist for the day.
Located just 20 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD is the high-end suburb of Armadale: a classic Melbourne neighbourhood with a mixture of modern and heritage homes along leafy tree-lined streets, and “shopping strips” of boutiques, cafes, galleries and spas. Spend time strolling High Street – Armadale’s central strip – browsing the Australian designer boutiques.
Stop for lunch at a local providore serving the finest Melbourne café fare – just as the locals do. Venture further to the premier shopping destination in Australia, Chadstone, featuring 38 luxury brands under its roof – more than double that of central Melbourne. Visit Paspaley for an intimate pearl discovery experience, where you will uncover the magic behind the rarest and most valuable pearls in the world.
Over a glass of champagne you can savour pearl meat canapes, discover a unique family story of adventure and innovation and explore Paspaley’s Signature Collection. The Daily Edited – a new arrival on the international fashion scene – manufacture fine quality leather goods for men and women, featuring their personalised monogram service that provides each item with a unique piece of individuality in under ten minutes. High tea will be served in the private rooms of Anton’s – Australia’s only manufacturer of luxury diamond jewellery.
There’ll also be time to visit other Australian icons such as the Melbourne-made organic range from Endota, plus Kennedy, Zimmerman, Camilla, and a host of international brands with private shopping suites. Enjoy your personal styling assistance or take some tips and wander the shopper’s paradise independently!
