For those that live close by to the Macquaire Centre in North Ryde, Sydney, expect jealousy to come your way. Japanese retailer phenomenon, UNIQLO, has announced it plans to make the shopping centre its first Sydney home in October 2014.
However, the good news doesn’t stop there for Sydney fashion lovers. Another four international high street brands are to land at the Macquaire Centre, making it the fashion hostess with the ‘mostess’- the centre will hold the largest number of international, high- street fashion stores of any Australian shopping centre!
But back to the fabulous Uniqlo. The store will stretch across 1,500 square metre and will house the full line up of UNIQLO apparel. Expect practical but on trend coats, down jackets, ultra fine merino knits and turtle necks, shirts, blouses, jeans and pants. What’s best about Uniqlo is that pieces create the perfect foundation for a gorgeous wardrobe. The pieces are smart, non-fussy and tie into fashion’s minimalist moments. And all come at really affordable prices. They understand their customer and are truly a leader in high street designs!
The store will join David Jones and Myer to form a two floor fashion galleria, featuring 130 specialty fashion stores.
AMP Capital Shopping Centres Managing Director, Bryan Hynes, said the quality of the international retailers coming to Macquarie Centre confirms the strength of the $440 million redevelopment to be finished in October.
With the centre’s redevelopment and Uniqlo’s announcement, October couldn’t come fast enough. And for Melbourne dwellers, perhaps a little spring Sydney trip is in order!
