Brisbane’s oldest shopping arcade and the headquarters for Queensland’s couture fashion will host its annual and much anticipated designer workroom sale this month – with heaps of treasures and bargains on offer.

For four days only from Thursday 28 to Sunday 31 January at Brisbane Arcade, the workroom sale offers an array of exclusive finds including one-offs, samples, seconds, fabrics, trims, discounted designer fashion, jewellery, accessories, gifts and heaps more.

Since 1923 and long before Brisbane’s Queen Street Mall was dotted with concept stores, multi-level shopping centres, superstores and the like, the city’s consummate consumers have flocked to Brisbane Arcade to enjoy couture fashion, jewellery, tailors and other shopping experiences.

Over the years some of the city’s best known and most highly decorated designers have been headquartered at Brisbane Arcade, including Gwen Gillam, Harvey Graham, Michael Klease, Anthony Leigh Dower, Royce Facy, Irma J Smith, Debra Kolkka, Adam R Dixon, Lydia Pearson (of Easton Pearson fame) and Keri Craig.

Today, the Arcade’s leading designers include Darb Bridal Couture, Irma J Smith House of Fashion, Maiocchi, Pia du Pradal and Tengdahl. As well as, leading jewellery and accessory stores like The Hat Box, Stones, Hofstays, Robert White Jewellers and more than 15 designer, manufacturer and antique jewellery specialists.

Over the workroom sale, bargain hunters can reel in heavily discounted fashion, jewellery and accessories from all of these incredible stores, as well as treasures from BethWyn Fabrics, House of Dower, Kellies Antiques, Details, Keri Craig Emporium, Maiocchi, Pia du Pradal, Stephen Dibb Jewellery, Tengdahl Australia and Tree of Life to name a few.

Brisbane Arcade Marketing Manager Andra Bite says the annual workroom sale always creates a flurry of excitement as the Arcade’s designers delve into the epicentres of their work – their workrooms – to put on sale samples, seconds and other special discounts.

“It’s a chance for many shoppers to come and snap up designer bargains from our stunning Brisbane Arcade retailers,” she says.

“There is nothing like the feeling of swindling a bargain and in many cases with some of the items at our annual workroom sale – they are one-offs.”

Shopping for bargains? Sounds like the perfect way to spend a weekend!

Brisbane Arcade’s workroom sale will be held from Thursday 28 to Sunday 31 January. Brisbane Arcade is located at 160 Queen Street in Brisbane’s CBD. For more information visit
