Debbie’s deluge put a dampener on James Street’s marie claire Up Late event last month, but you can’t keep a good event down for long.

James Street will now host its sixth annual Up Late event on Thursday 4 May.

From 6pm to 8pm, you’ll find exclusive offers, entertainment, special designer appearances and curated shopping experiences throughout the precinct.

marie claire will be giving away 1,000 fun-filled gift bags, and the celebrations will continue late into the evening with James Street’s award-winning restaurants and bars offering themed cocktails and lively after parties.

Celebs, designers and fashion identities to keep an eye out for include Jesinta Franklin (David Jones), Adrian Norris and Edwina Robinson (Aje.), Natasha Chipman (Natasha Schweitzer), Louise Olsen (Dinosaur Designs) and Gail Sorronda, as well as marie claire editors Nicky Briger, Jackie Frank, Bree McDonald and Monica Russell.
