Canberra Centre transforms into a style oasis for spring/summer fashion season

Amanda Whitley

Yes, yes…I know the last couple of days have been decidedly chilly, but trust me…the warmer weather is on its way back. The Bureau of Meteorology promises…and have they ever been wrong? Ahem.

But Spring is in the air! Canberra Centre’s key trends for the upcoming spring and summer season are nothing less than fabulous. Powder pastels including soft pinks, mints, and blues; tropical and floral prints and matching separates; appliqué and laser cut textured whites; and metallics – there’s something for every style, age and stage.


These key trends will be on display this month in a series of stylish fashion and beauty events that will see Canberra Centre transform into a style oasis, as Canberra’s iconic Guardians of Style return to showcase the season’s key trends in a series of fashion shows and pop-up appearances.


Fashion enthusiasts will experience a touch of tropical glamour as renowned stylist Colleen Cuneo presents the season’s trends from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 September in a series of free fashion shows. Catch them at 12noon, 1pm, 2pm, 5pm, 6pm and 7pm on Friday 19 September; and at 12noon, 1pm and 2pm on Saturday 20 September and Sunday 21 September.

To complement the fashion shows, an exclusive Beauty Oasis will also pop-up in centre over the weekend, providing shoppers with the opportunity to browse and sample new products, view makeup tutorials and receive a mini hand massage or mini makeover. The Beauty Oasis will provide beauty inspiration from 9am to 9pm on Friday 19 September, 9am to 5pm on Saturday 20 September and from 10am to 4pm on Sunday 21 September.


To celebrate the launch of the spring/summer fashion season, Canberra Centre will also host a series of fashion focused activities and competitions including personal styling sessions on Saturday 13 and 27 September.
