It’s a much more personal experience and there’s a lot of trust there – you end up with a much more diverse and rich wardrobe.”
“My shoes are from Valentino, my clutch is Louis Vuitton and my skirt is Zara. I’m loving this event because it’s highlighting how important boutique shopping is, especially for Canberra. I love being able to walk into a store and have that sense of intimacy.”
“My dress is from Rebel Muse; it’s got shorts underneath. I love how exclusive it feels in here now and that’s what boutique shopping should be, it adds that finesse to Canberra.”
“I’m wearing Rebel Muse tonight. As the owner of a boutique shop myself I’m very much an advocate of boutiques because it’s an experience you can never get online. My favourite brand at Pink Ink would have to be Ellery, they have such stunning pieces.”
